Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney is wasting no time showing his capabilities in the preseason despite merely being a rookie in the league, as the No. 1 overall pick this year put an absolute hit on Falcons running back Antone Smith on Saturday night. 

Here's the first with only a few minutes gone by in the first quarter no score. Ouch. Eerily reminiscent of the famous hit he had on a different running back named Smith in college.

And on the next play, the rookie sacked quarterback Matt Ryan. Good luck NFL, the guy is an absolute beast.
