So I just heard Clowney is in Florida and..
 
is obviously training for the draft. Well the interesting news I heard from a reliable source is that Clowney came out and just ran a 40 immediately...cold...and ran a 4.62. After some working out and stretching and warming up...he ran a 4.42.

That's about on par, but a little faster than we heard last summer. I was also told the % (money wise) Bus Cook is taking from him and I see why he chose Bus Cook over Jay-Z.

Take that how you will....but I've been with the same source and Clowney a few times (I have 2 jerseys signed by him because of this, a friend has another). So I know he's with him...a lot.

Wow thats fast!! He is going to shock and awe a lot of people at the combine. They are going to have to re name the combine to the Clowney-bine....

I haven't seen anyone mention it in a while so I will go ahead and put it out there. Clowney is a freak.

No, no, no. Jay-Z only wants to help young athletes, not take their money. I refuse to believe that Bus Cook is not robbing him blind of all his money. That's what all agents do. At least that is what I was told on another board...

Is He still going to have surgery on his feet in the off-season? I hope so. He has been in a lot of pain for a long time.

Can't do that. QBs will be scared to show up.

When a 6-6 274lb DE outruns all the running backs at the combine in the forty, I am going to crack up.

You didn't have to go to another board for that:

I think there is about a 2.7% chance he runs at the combine. Too many stories have been passed around about his low 40. Too much to lose at this point if he runs a 4.7.

He is not going to run a 40 that low.

Sorry, I'm not buying a 4.42.....and there's no way he runs cold without warming up.....that's a great way to pull a muscle.

The last I heard - believe it was from Clowney himself - was that he was NOT having surgery to remove those bone spurs. I'm not sure the change in stance.

Got to agree with you, he just didn't look as quick this season as he has in the past.

Plus, why run a 40 without stretching? Tear a hamstring before the combine?

he said prior to the bowl that the time off made his foot feel so much better that the plan no longer was to have surgery after the bowl. as for the combine it will be interesting to see what he weighs in at and if he does the 40 and the bench press.

looking at the 40 times of last year's drafted dlinemen a sub 4.5 would have to be unprecedented (for his size). even something sub 4.6 would be outstanding. for that matter something in the 4.6's would still be great for a man his size.

If Clowney runs a 4.4-ish at the Combine and has above avg numbers on all the other measurables, then he will launch himself back up to the Overall #1 pick.

Dang, he is going to be fun to watch at the combine and on Sundays.

I suggest you read a couple of books that may give you a different perspective on sports agents. The first is "What They Don't Teach at Harvard Business School" by Mark McCormick who founded IMG, the first significant sports agency. After that pick up "Minding Other People's Business" and "Never Make the First Offer" by Donald Dell who founded ProServ, the second largest sport's agency in 1970. Although ProServ was started with tennis players, i.e. Arthur Ashe and Stan Smith it also represented players like Michael Jordan, James Worthy and other team and individual athletes. Good agents have a philosophy of handling the clients finances so that they will be able to live as well after their careers are over as they do during their playing days. I do have a certain insight into this as my wife was Donald Dell's executive assistant for many years and I count Donald as a close friend.

If he runs a 4.5 and blast the other measurables he will be a top 5 pick.

Clowney will be top 3 pick easily and thats even if he happened to run a 4.7.

Didn't we hear about the spurs in 2012? If that was the case and he had the whole 2013 spring to rest it to play in the fall. Why do you think that a months rest it going to produce better results this time around? Just asking, since I have never had spurs that I know of.
