I think the Mike Williams argument is the best one. JD needs to be in footbal shape before he enters the draft.

A lot of CU fans keep talking about this senario. Wishing for it is a better term.

If you watch the last minute of this video he talks about what he needs to do to improve and his goals for next year (being 1st pick in the draft). Just doesn't sound like a guy that's gonna sit out the year and train.

Don't forget he wants to win the Heisman. I think he can do it. The hit that shook the world has put everyone on notice!!!

Maurice and Williams aren't the best example because they ain't Clowney.

I don't think it's the best idea by any stretch, but again it's not as crazy as everyone seems to think.

You take Clowney out a year, have him train and practice with other NFL athletes at a personal training facility and I would still put money on him being a top 3 pick.

I know some people have mentioned it but JD loves the game of football too much to give up a season, I have never been big on Twiter but occasionally get on after big events to see what people are saying and after his hit I figured I would check it out and I noticed on his he said "Boy I had a big hit today dang love the game" I think he wants the Heisman and I see him working his butt off to get it

“I think I can be a lot better next year,” he said. “I can work on my run stopping and getting my hands up and get stronger than I was this year. I'm going to be a lot better next year. Y'all just watch and see.” - Clowney

End of story.

Default Re: Allow Me To Play Devil's Advocate

Man, I think EVERYONE is missing the point of the OP and just going into freak out mode. Clowney is an a unique position... He's the only player I've ever heard of that could have been drafted in the first round coming out of HIGH SCHOOL! And, if the NFL didn't have the 3-year college rule, he would have been. Of course he will get better by playing in college as much as he can (barring injury), but the OP never said anything to the contrary. If he could leave for the draft this year, he would be the #1 pick. If he sat and went next year, almost assuredly still #1 pick still. Yes, he's that good. He doesn't have to get any better to be a #1 pick... That's SCARY, 'cause he IS gonna get better next year playing for us!!!

Do you work for 560 The Team? (Just curious - they rode this stupid sh*t for a week...)

How the hell is JD going to win the Heisman sitting out 2013? (HIS stated goal, not mine.)

I'll hang up and listen...

I don't think it's in Clowny's nature to lay off. He really seems to enjoy the game and the team. Yesterday did expose a different way to slow him down - a helmet to the nads, and he came back after that as soon as he could. Would you?

Well, you'd be a self-before-team player and a lousy competitor then, and I'm very glad you're not a Gamecock.

I disagree with this Corey Miller line of thinking. If he did this it would show a lack of character. It would show selfishness. If I were a GM, it would tell me he is a guy who values his next paycheck or contract over winning games. I don't think that describes him and I don't think he will follow this path.

He has the direct line to be the first defensive lineman to win the heisman, that will keep him motivated. I do wonder what lossing leaders like Marcus and DJ will do to this entire teams mindset.
