2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Jadeveon Clowney, DE , South Carolina
Clowney is already a grown man with special skills. Fantastic length, athleticism and strength. Once-a-decade pure talent. Can beat blockers with strength or speed, inside or out. Sudden burst, change of direction, and lateral agility are all elite. Great bend when working the outside edge. Could play multiple positions, but makes the most sense as a 4-3 DE.
Blamed for taking some plays off in 2013, but he did show an excellent motor in 2012. Work ethic has been a concern at times, as his talent far surpassed his competition. Showed great effort in backside pursuit. Plays to the whistle. Tackling technique is a bit hectic and will need to learn how to break down properly. He simply flies around the field, which is why he often relied on impact tackling. Very aggressive, downhill style of play. Could be the game's best pass rusher for years. The hype is real and deserved.
Clowney projects as a Top 5 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
