Would he still be the #1 overall pick?
Enough of this topic already, he is playing so who cares ?
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
kinda hoping Cyrus Kouandjio goes first. bama has never had a #1 overall pick
Still think the dude is an extreme badass but the current media effort, regurgitated by message boarders, building him up to be Zeus himself is way off base. USCe had an elite DE off the other side and JC still had like 12.5 sacks. Is he really good or effing spectacular. Im leaning towards really good still.
Some dude's helmet popping off does not a prospect make.
i mean is he a no doubt first pick?
Yes he would, IMO..
UNLESS a big time QB breaks out.. QB will always win if they're good enough
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
I agree with some of this, but if he shows up at the combine next year... measures a legit 6'5" or 6'6" and 270 while running 4.5's then god damn, that would make him one of the best DE prospects I have ever seen, if not the best
Lol.. You're soo wrong it's not even funny.
You love being a contrarian.. Dude was one of the best prospects ever and will be a FORCE in the NFL and is the best player in CFB.
I can't believe how dumb your post is.. Seriously.
I called him an extreme badass and very good. Yet you come back with this?

Only way I see him not being one is if a franchise QB emerges this year. And not a little Manziel type... a real 6'3"+, can't miss guy like Luck.
I fully expect Clowney to toil in obscurity in Jacksonville.
No you didn't.. You said he's a badass blah blah BUT the media is sucking him off and popping a helmet doesn't make a prospect and compared him to a USC DE.. In a nutshell.
Everything before the "but" is irrelevant.
I mean he's got a point. Clowney didn't start getting the crazy hype until the hit.
He's a stud, but he's getting a litte too much hype right now IMO.
Also the odds he goes #1 aren't fantastic. If Bridgewater has the year many are expecting, odds are he will be the first selection. #1 in the draft hardly ever goes to a DE. Usually crappy teams need a franchise QB, and Bridgewater or another QB will be taken ahead of Clowney despite not being a better prospect.
He is playing so I am not going there, but he should be the best player in the draft. Not knowing who is QB hungry a year from now is hard to say if he is #1 for sure though.
IMO, the 2 best players in the draft next year will be Clowney and Kuoandijo, but a QB could still be the top pick though based on needs.
Not true. Harry Gilmer in the house back in the leather helmet days lol.
Lol. Just looked back at the last DE like this and the Texans took David Carr #1 over Peppers.
He had mad hype before he played a snap of college.. His size and speed are scary, he's going to be one of the great ones.
Maybe I was a little hard on fsufsu but Clowney blows me away, kid is one of the most special players i've ever seen
How is he getting too much hype? He is obviously the best player in college football
Compared him to a USC DE? Never happened, waste someone else's time. Mriderblue got the point, Clowney was viewed as "really really good" and then he gets a well time, overhyped highlight play and ESPN goes into HYPEMODE2013. It's ridiculous. Just like your responses.
I'm pretty sure Clowney had a ton of hype before "the hit." He's pretty much been in the limelight since high school. Only kid who might get picked at #1 over JC is Bridgewater, but I still think Clowney goes #1 if he plays or not. He's going to play though so it's a moot issue.
Best pro prospect? Yes.
Best player in CFB? Hell no.
Who's better? And he's definitely the best defensive player in football.
Lol.. You and mriderblue
Anyways, I'm out this thread.. You seriously don't have a clue
