For a defensive lineman, Jadeveon Clowney knows how to find the end zone.

In his senior season, he scored five touchdowns on defense and scored nine touchdowns in spot duty as a running back.

He tallied 162 tackles, 29 sacks, 29 tackles for loss, 11 caused fumbles and six fumble recoveries on defense.
