So true.

Using this blatant statement is ignorant as well.


If the #1 picking team has a desperate NEEd not at DE. they would be foolish to waste that pick on him...


He's the Best bet at his position, I will give you that...but discussions of number 1 pick is something for the pundits to blather over, team need determines #1 pick.

Because he had a horribly disappointing year after being portrayed as one of the greatest of all time.

He was schemed against moreso than the past two years. And the coaches should have expected this. But it is disingenuous to suggest opponents' gameplanning completely cut him out of the picture. Or to suggest he was double/triple teamed on every down all year long. Plenty of times it has been pointed out when Clowney was being contained by a single lineman or quitting on the play.

Clowney has the stuff to be the greatest ever but he has a poor work ethic.

After all the flu, bruised ribs, offseason bonespurs missed by trainers, eating grapes-for-lunch excuses, I don't know how some of you are still pumping sunshine about Clowney's performance this season.

Someone here said if you'd have told them in August that Clowney would only have 3 sacks this season, that person would have been smoking crack. He's absolutely right.

The greatest of all time doesn't finish the season ranked 10th on the 2013 Gamecocks defense.

I doubt that he takes part in the combine. My guess would be that he gets his heel spurs, or whatever his deal is, taken care of, and then just does all of the combine type stuff on Pro Day.

I would be surprised if he doesn't do the 40. It doesn't mean anything but it is the eye-catcher
