South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney has put together a number of impressive displays of his physical gifts, from three years in college to the Combine to his pro day.
So he’s not putting any more out there until the draft.
According to Peter King of TheMMQB.com, Clowney won’t be doing any more individual workouts for teams until he’s chosen by one of them.
King cites the torn ACL of Clemson tackle Brandon Thomas as one of the reasons, but it really doesn’t need to be that hard. Simply put, he’s at a stage where there’s little left to prove, and not that many to prove it to, considering where he’ll be picked.
“I’d want the guy who’s going to be coaching him to put him through some of our drills, and see how he responds,” one General Manager said.
That seems the attitude of someone looking for a reason to not draft Clowney, in the face of plenty of evidence.
