The 10 Fittest NFL Rookies

These are the young guns bringing the heat this season.

The USA Today National Defensive Player of the Year (2012), Clowney is an imposing one-man force with near limitless potential. Clowney, the top pick of the draft, ran an incredible 4.53 40-yard dash (at 6'5", 266 pounds) to lead all DEs in the league, along with top marks in the broad jump and vertical leap at the combine. But that’s all beside the point, since he had already established himself as a dominant defender throughout his three college years, particularly in 2012, when he registered 54 tackles, 13 sacks, and three forced fumbles (his 2013 numbers were also good but he was hampered by injuries). Houston is likely hoping to get a similar defensive spark from Clowney as the Panthers got from drafting Luke Kuechly a couple years ago, so look to be entertained by him sacking QBs and burying running backs behind the line of scrimmage for losses this season and in the coming years.
