Default Re: Jadeveon Clowney viewed as a once-in-a-decade NFL prospect

I just hope he doesn't blow out a knee during his last season in which he is required to play AAA (aka college) football. At least he is in the SEC, which in terms of the talent level is somewhere between the rest of college football and the NFL.

Coach Spurrier says Clowney is the rare player who probably could have played in the NFL immediately after leaving high school.

NFL has prevailed on this issue in court but forcing guys to wait to qualify for the draft is unfortunate.

No, he will be a Patriot. The Steelers will finish the season 0-21, get the first overall pick, and then Belichick will use his genius to manipulate the Steelers into just giving the first pick to the Pats.

I actually almost put the Taperiots (it's a Belichickian type of move), but I didn't want to jinx it. Since the cat's out of the bag, yes, I could see Belichick trading up for Clowney.

I hope not, the last two places I would like for my boy to end up is Baltimore or Foxboro.

We won't care where he goes if we win another Lombardi.
