Jimmy Fallon Has Jadaveon Clowney and Other Top NFL Draft Prospects on Tonight Show, Innocuous Jokes Ensue (Video)
Jimmy Fallon is obviously a big sports fan, because he’s always doing sports bits on the Tonight Show. For that reason, with the biggest sporting event of the week—the 2014 NFL Draft—taking place right around the corner from his New York studio, everyone was expecting him to work that into his show somehow. And he did.
On last night’s Tonight Show, Fallon brought some of the draft’s biggest names into the studio for his “Meet the Athletes” segment, which means they just stood next to him while he made a harmless joke tangentially related to them.
After that, Jadaveon Clowney, the presumptive #1 pick, stuck around for a chat—and a footrace.
Of course, that stuff Clowney said about not being a millionaire yet was not true. Earlier in the day he signed an endorsement deal with Puma, which explains his attire. And I think that probably earned him a pretty good chunk of change.
