NEW YORK (WIS) -

Projected No. 1 overall NFL Draft pick Jadeveon Clowney sat down with Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" Wednesday.

"It hasn't set in yet, I'm just enjoying it," Clowney said.

Clowney talked about his mom and the experience leading up to Thursday's NFL Draft.  

"She's very happy for me," Clowney said. "I think she's loving this more than I am."

"Are you a millionaire?" asked Fallon. Clowney said "Not yet."

Clowney said he's still broke and living at home with his mom.

"I'm going to buy her a house," he said when Fallon asked what he was going to do with his first paycheck. "That's the first thing I'm going to do."

After Fallon showed a replay of the hit heard around the world at the 2013 Outback Bowl against Michigan, they went in the hall and Fallon ran a mock 40-yard dash.

"I'm guessing 5 seconds flat," Clowney said before the sprint. "You got some speed, look like you can run."

Fallon ran the 40-yard dash in 6.9 seconds.

Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins also made an appearance in a sketch with other draft hopefuls.

    Dylan Thompson threw for three touchdowns and No. 24 South Carolina's maligned defense stood strong on a fourth-quarter goal line stand to topple No. 6 Georgia 38-35 on Saturday night.
    No. 24 South Carolina's defense showed it's not nearly as bad as it looked two weeks ago - and maybe that No. 6 Georgia isn't the runaway favorite in the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division.

    Georgia can establish itself as a top-tier beast if it gets by South Carolina this weekend - and USC would drop to 0-2 in the league with a loss. Tennessee travels to Oklahoma, where Coach Bob Stoops doesn't believe the SEC is all-powerful.
