Jadeveon Clowney has impressed an array of important people in recent times that culminated with his high quality showing at the NFL Combine. 

The former University of South Carolina defensive end stood out at the Combine as he provided an outstanding 40 yard dash time that saw him clock an unofficial time of 4.47 seconds. 

That particular moment drew a shocked face or two from onlookers that included former NFL legend Warren Sapp, but it seems not everyone is impressed. 

Philadelphia wide-receiver DeSean Jackson was caught out and about yesterday and he was asked what he things of the powerful defender.  

Although he recognised the excellent talents of Clowney, he believes there are plenty of players in the NFL just like him. 

Jackson maintained that Clowney will need to perform week in week out in the NFL to gain the utmost respect from his NFL peers, and he also insisted that he is still faster than Clowney. 

"Faster than me? I don't think so," Jackson told TMZ Sports.

"I can just congratulate him for being 260 and doing his thing ... but this Jackson speed right here is rollin' on anything in the NFL ... put it that way, you feel me?

"I just need to see him get to the NFL and do his thing in the NFL is a big man sport.

"I know he's 260, that fast sh*t cool, but I got homies right here that's bigger than that, that poundin' sh*t in the streets. So, if he gonna get on that field and pound sh*t, I can't do nothing but respect him."
