Jadeveon Clowney will always have the honor of being the first overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, but a punter of all players may have done him one better at the NFL Combine.

Per Tyler Brooke of Bleacher Report (via information obtained from the Sporting News), "former Miami punter Pat O'Donnell bench-pressed 225 pounds 23 times at the combine a few months ago, while Clowney recorded just 21 reps."

While most NFL teams (including the Texans) didn't seem too worried about Clowney's underwhelming performance on the bench press, the Chicago Bears seemed to be paying attention to O'Donnell's impressive display -- making him the first punter selected in the 2014 NFL Draft with the 191st overall pick.

O'Donnell will be able to tell his grandkids how he out-benched the #1 overall pick the year he was drafted-- however, it may be to safe to say that Clowney will have the last laugh career-wise when all is said and done.
