Wrong. He is currently the likely first pick. A year of no activity while other players do so, and a demonstration that he would bail on his team to preserve himself, not to mention a concern of how rusty a year off would leave him, and his draft stock would drop a great deal. Draft status isn't a set thing.

Would he still be drafted? Of Course. Would he be the first pick? No freakin way.

What is annoyed is Andrew Luck was cheered for going back for his senior year and he was the consensus #1 pick and could do nothing to improve his status. We have a consensus #1 pick and people are saying he should sit out. SMDH. If he played for ND, SOCAL, Bama orsomeone of that stature no one would dare say this.

Luck technically could have gone back to school after last year.

Bit he could have gone pro after his sophomore year and been #1. But was cheered for staying. That was the point.

Default Re: Charlotte Observer: JD Clowney should consider skipping 2013

I wish Clowney would just come out and say something like 'Look, I'm going to play. I've set my goal to get to NY. No one that has ever sat out for a year or more before going to the NFL has turned out to be a franchise player. I'm going to be a franchise player. I'm going to stay sharp, I'm going to play better than I did last year to show that I'm still evolving. Clemson sucks, TWEET THAT'.

Or something like that anyways, so everyone will just shut up.

This whole thing is stupid. I am honestly a good bit surprised that it is picking up this much national attention.

The just hashed this out on Mike & Mike. Herbie called in and said "no way he sits". They also reported that Clowney tweeted "I'm gonna play lol," from a twitter account they said was confirmed

Not a fair comparison. Luck was cheered because he had a choice, and decided to stay. Plenty of people said he should go before he made the choice to stay, and plenty said he should have gone after he chose to stay. But why would anyone say he should sit out when he voluntarily elected to stay, he had a choice. Clowney doesn't have a choice, and he has to stay, that's why people say he should sit out. If he "chose" to stay, no one would be saying he should sit out. So again, you can't compare the two.

My point is not the decision he made my point was that they are both the consensus number one pick regardless of what they choose to do one was cheered for coming back when he didn't have to the other is being told to sit out which is unprecedented.

I understand your point. My point is that its not fair to make your point due to the difference in the situations.

He and Spurrier both have already said he will play. It's just the media being the media.

I guess it's the dead period of sports talk radio. You can only talk about basketball for so long. Gotta have something to fill the airwaves.

OH, I've been 100% positive this entire time that he's going to play next year. Not for one second has the 'he might sit out' business had me concerned in the slightest.

I'd like Clowney to come out with (a bigger) statement that shuts up the national attention. His small twitter quote isn't going to do that. If he said something that shows he's weighed the options, and sitting out is flat out ridiculous, then people would stop even discussing it.

The thing is though, there are no options to weigh. Sitting out is not an option. Period.

Football players play football. First round draft picks (including the concensus #1 overall pick) play football.

This is, and always was, stupid sports jock rhetoric. His comment, "I'm playing. lol", sums it up perfectly.
