When Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery was in his final season at South Carolina, Jadeveon Clowney was a freshman. And Clowney made quite an impression on his older teammate.
Jeffery told the South Carolina Gamecocks’ website before Clowney’s Pro Day that Clowney is an elite talent who can do very big things at the next level.
“He knows what he has to do,” Jeffery said. “He’s going to be a great player. He’s going to dominate the league, and he’s going to be a Hall of Famer.”
The question, of course, is why a guy who has the talent to dominate on Sundays didn’t always dominate on Saturdays. The team that drafts Clowney has to hope he plays every day like the future Hall of Famer he has the talent to be.
