Get back to me when the dude runs a 4.5 at 6'6" 280lbs. Clowney could have an entire LaGuardia carousel of baggage and still go first overall. He had 13 sacks last year in the SEC. He is probably coasting a bit this year trying to protect himself so he doesn't lose out on a $40 million payday. NFL GMs will account for that.
If teams really are tanking he's probably the reason.
So your belief is that an NFL team will tank...in order to select a player that you believe is also tanking?
I think what you are suggesting is absolute madness. SC will likely be 10-1 when they host Clemson (with their only loss to Georgia). It is not unreasonable to think there is a possibility, albeit slim, that SC could end up playing for the title. Anything short of the Natty will be failure in Spurrier's world. I sincerely doubt he's putting anyone on the field that is "coasting" or conserving themselves for the next level.
Spurrier, the pud that he is, has very long arms and can be a not so pleasant individual. IF Clowney is doing what you're suggesting, it will not serve him well. At this rate, Clowney will not be #1...he can run a 4.2 and not go #1. Please point to another example where a player did what you are suggesting.
And where are you getting this notion that he's looking at $40 mil? Do you actually believe this "coasting", non-QB Clowney will get double the deal Andrew Luck got? Are you related to Clowney by chance?
