Default Re: What is with all the hate on Clowney from every direction?

I was watching PTI the other day and the Clowney discussion came up. Tony asked Mike if he'd draft JC #1 overall and with out hesitating he said "In a heartbeat". Not everybody is hating, just the one's trying to get attention.

He's going to tear it up at the next level so I'm really not worried about what they say right now. But I do agree it does get old and is unsubstantiated garbage. But at the end of the day USC fans already know what type of player he is. The early front runner for the Texans HC job is Lovie Smith, so if it all works out accordingly JD will be in great hands when he goes first pick overall.

Default Re: What is with all the hate on Clowney from every direction?

People can hate on his stats this year if they want. Or they can remember that he would have been the #1 draft pick out of HS if the NFL allowed it. He would have been the #1 pick after his freshman year and he would have been the #1 pick after last year. Clowney hasn't lost an ounce of physical talent in the last 3 years. He has put on 25-30 pounds of muscle while improving his 40 and maintaining his agility. F a bone spur. That's an easy fix for an NFL doc. Its not like he has had double reconstructive knee surgery. Scouts know what they are getting. Only a complete ass-tard would pass on him. You can't draft a Tom Brady as the #1 pick bc nobody knows who the hell they are until its too late. But everyone knows who Clowney is. So I say let em hate. Makes them look stupid.

Because if everybody was kissing his ass then there would be nothing to talk about. Everything I've seen about Clowney and the draft pretty much says "will it be him or a QB to go first?" That's not really bashing.

Correct. Dirty laundry, just like the song says, sells. It is a cheap tactic for attention when you are lacking substance in the college sports world waiting for the bowl games.

Default Re: What is with all the hate on Clowney from every direction?

Clowney has been unstoppable in college unless he is double teamed. It will be the same in the NFL. Every team owner, general manager and head coach in the NFL realizes getting JD is like getting 2 first round picks for the price of one. He is a once in a lifetime talent. Even this year's performance proves that. Every team we played built their offensive game plan around neutralizing Clowney's dominating presence. Double teams and running the play to the other side of the field won't work as well in the NFL because there is too much talent at the other positions on defense.

Clowney is the clear cut #1 pick without a close 2nd. Anyone who doesn't recognize this is showing their ignorance of football.

Default Re: What is with all the hate on Clowney from every direction?

I have heard and read enough on this topic and the general consensus is HE IS A FREAK and will be a dominant DE in the NFL. Sure, some question taking plays off, but no one says a word about his ability and attitude.

I live in Houston. The Texans likely get the first pick and the debate is raging over Clowney or a QB. Is Bridgewater a game changing first pick type QB - not really, or at least he's no Andrew Luck. Clowney as a DE next to JJ Watt would be scary. How would you handle those two rushing the QB?

There is a radio analyst in Houston who I listen to a lot in the afternoon and he puts it well. Clowney is a physical freak the likes we have not seen since Lawrence Taylor and is the most schemed against player in college football.

By the way, Bob McNair (SC alum) owns the Texans. Jonathan Joseph and DJ Swearinger start on defense already. But man do the Texans have a QB issue.

The talk is that a quality QB will be available in the second round for the Texans because of the amount of QB's and the fact that NONE are considered game changers.

I guess I'm the only Gamecock fan living in reality land. Stats are what matter and Clowney sucked it up in that department this year. His work ethic is also questionable.
