PFT on NBCSN looks at Clowney’s decision to ditch private workouts, and more

Pro Football Talk on NBCSN returns Monday after a very brief break, and it’s time to begin focusing even more heavily on next month’s draft.

Monday’s edition will address the decision of a guy regarded as one of the top prospects to opt out of any additional pre-draft private workouts.  South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney won’t do it, and there are many different opinions on what it will mean or should mean to his draft stock.

What do you think about the issue?  Chime in below.

Chiming in during Monday’s show will be in-studio analysts Ross Tucker and Kevin Gilbride, along with an interview conducted with Cardinals G.M. Steve Keim in Florida at the league meetings.  The Cards and Packers will get a closer look when it comes to the question of their free-agency efforts and their draft needs.

Tune in at 5:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN for 60 minutes of the latest NFL information and analysis.

    Obviously it’s a case by case basis for each player, and it could be different choices that make sense depending on timing or other circumstances that could change as the situation evolves. This is very complicated and that’s why a player needs to try and do everything they can to make sure they are qualifying who they get advice from. If you only talk to one advisor, then you aren’t going to necessarily hear the best ideas that that particular advisor is oblivious to.

    If a NFL team can’t properly scout a player based on all his college games and countless interviews, plus the combine then maybe they should be in a different profession.

    Some teams make a big splash of bringing these guys in in order to stimulate fan interest. Why should the player contribute to that form of usery. All they get paid is travel expenses.

    Personally I think personal work outs shouldn’t happen. What if the nfl hopeful gets injured? What happens then? There should be plenty of information out there already. On film and through interviews . Just my opinion .

    31 extra unpaid workouts.. He don’t need the pub that bad.

    We all know Clowney is a egoistic bastard, but working with Watts will hopefully change that now that he is going to have someone with the same skill level as he has.

    Maybe he is hiding the fact that he is the next Aaron Curry.

    It’s J.J. Watt. And Watt shouldn’t be responsible for ensuring clowney trains hard and practices hard. clowney either wants if or he doesn’t. If the Texans draft clowney and he doesn’t listen to Watt, I can see Watt leaving when his contract is up

    Maybe he’s been told he’s going to be selected 1st????

    The decision to workout is up to Clowney. It’s up to the individual teams in order to care about whether he does or not.

    Clowney has BUST written all over him. I hope he falls flat on his egomaniac face.

    So many red flags for this guy, if he is this scared to get exposed or injured than he is not worth a 1st.
