Jadeveon Clowney shines at Pro Day

Posted Apr 2, 2014

The South Carolina defensive end took part in the Pro Timing Day Wednesday morning at Williams-Brice Stadium, and by all accounts, he wowed the NFL personnel types in attendance.

The sun was shining brightly, and so was Jadeveon Clowney.

The South Carolina defensive end took part in the Pro Timing Day Wednesday morning at Williams-Brice Stadium and, by all accounts, he wowed the NFL personnel types in attendance.

Rick Smith, general manager of the Texans, liked what he saw.

So did head coach Bill O’Brien.

As did fellow former Gamecock and current Texans’ safety D.J. Swearinger.

And Clowney himself.

“I thought I did good today,” he said.

Last Thursday, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was the focal point of a scripted throwing session that lasted 66 passes.

Today, Clowney was part of an ensemble, as a dozen or so of his college teammates were also taking part in the traditional Pro Day format. Several former Gamecocks ran the 40-yard dash, did the 3-cone drill, and more. South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw threw to receivers.

But make no mistake: Clowney was the main attraction.

For the first 30 or so minutes of the Pro Day, he was an observer. Once he finally got to work, he took part in agility Drills run by a Rams assistant. After that, a Jaguars’ representative put him to work. He even did some drills with Texans’ defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel.

“I wanted to show them I could move well laterally, not just one-way speed,” Clowney said. “They know I got speed.”

The South Carolina standout didn’t run the 40, or take part in the bench press because he did so in February at the National Scouting Combine. The work he did on Wednesday was a re-affirmation of his eye-popping talent.

“Send in the card”, was the simple answer ESPN analyst and former New England linebacker Tedy Bruschi said, when asked what the Texans should do. Teams have to submit a card with a player’s name and position on it when it’s their turn to draft. Bruschi, who played under Crennel with the Patriots, said Clowney is head-and-shoulders above any of the quarterback prospects available.

Ultimately, Clowney laughed when he was asked whether or not he thought he should be chosen first overall on May 8. He answered that question with one of his own.

“What do you think?”

Whether or not it happens remains to be seen, but Clowney did nothing to hurt his chances on Wednesday morning.
