Default Clowney didn't request his NFL draft grade...

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...ft-evaluations

I know it sounds crazy, but he might not leave early after the speeding ticket and down year he had. Both probably knocked him out of the top 5 if not the top 10 altogether. Plus he is going to need to get surgery, so he won't be able to do anything at the combine. Factor that in with how close we came to BCS glory this year, and how much talent we are already returning, he might decide staying is in his best interests. I am sure he'd love to be the first number 1 overall pick we've had from USC on defense, and he won't be able to accomplish that goal without returning.

It's also possible he's just lazy and figured he's first round no matter what, so screw it. The deadline for him to officially declare is January 15th, so keep your eyes out for an announcement one way or the others.

I am sure there are others, but those are just that ones that come to mind. Also these guys were QBs who put themselves more at risk by returning.

He's gone, and has been gone. Where have you been? Living under a rock? There has been 0% chance of him returning for his senior year for the last two years. He has nothing left to prove in college. Some say he should have been allowed to go straight from high school to the NFL, so don't try to compare him to anyone else who decided to stay for his year, he in a category above that.

I haven't been living under a rock, and I don't feel posting a news article warrants flaming me. This is sports. Weird shit happens all the time. Auburn was supposed to be unranked and terrible, now they are in the title game thanks to one of the rarest plays in college football: a returned FG for a TD as time expired in the Iron Bowl against the SEC's top defense.

99.9% of all players no matter how high they are projected to go request their draft grade. The fact that the only two people who didn't request it are Manziel and Clowney who both had down years adds a little fuel to the fire that I figured people might want to know about. Manziel also publicly said he's still deciding. I am not saying he's staying. I am just saying don't be surprised if something comes out where he decides to stay or at the very least says he is considering it. The point of the internet is to stay informed. I am just trying to inform my Gamecock brethren of something I read. Now quit acting like children. If you disagree say so, but there's no need to ridicule and name call.

Its a bleacher report. That warrants untold amounts of mocking. He's already said the Cap One would be his final game.

I'll agree nobody should be calling you names. But maybe problem #1 here is that you're reading Bleacher Report and thinking it's "news." Bleacher Report is 1 part wikipedia (anybody can write on it) and 1 part blog. It's by no means a news source and it's pretty much never worth reading.

No, he just already knows he'll be at least a top 5 pick. Grade is ELITE. That is all there is to it. No reason to request anything from anyone.

That's a fake account. Several of my friends follow that account thinking it's real. Come on, do you really think Clowney would only have 400 followers on twitter?
