The reviews for Jadeveon Clowney’s pro day workout at South Carolina were already good.
But the fact he might have been playing hurt can only help.
According to Josh Kendall of The State in Columbia, S.C., Clowney was working out with a “slight groin pull” today.
For a guy who was criticized by his own coach for not playing through injuries last year, the fact he’d work at anything other than 100 percent is somewhat telling.
On the other hand, working out at all might be presented as evidence it wasn’t that big of a deal, as he still performed well, running through line and linebacker drills and showing good movement.
Clowney said after his workout that he had two private workouts scheduled so far, with the Falcons and Rams. Of course, since neither of those teams pick first overall, it might not matter.
