Quote :
COLUMBIA, S.C. -- South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney has taken out a $5 million insurance policy to protect himself financially during the Gamecocks' 2013 season.

The All-American defensive end used Twitter to laugh off discussions last month about if he should sit out the year and not risk injury, but he apparently has been seriously thinking about his NFL future.

Several analysts say the 6-foot-6 Clowney would be the No. 1 overall pick in this year's NFL draft if he were eligible. That led to questions if Clowney should consider not playing and avoid possibly suffering an injury that might ruin his draft status.

Clowney said there never was a doubt he would play, but he did use the NCAA's "Exceptional Student-Athlete Disability Program" that permits qualifying athletes in football, men's and women's basketball, baseball and ice hockey, to take out a loan to help finance the cost of an insurance policy, which they must repay upon signing a pro contract.

Clowney confirmed Thursday that he had the $5 million policy, but he did not say he was concerned about being injured.

The $5 million is the maximum amount allowed, and NCAA spokesman Chris Radford has said such policies cost about $30,000. Radford said between 75 and 100 athletes take advantage of the program annually -- about 80 percent of those are football players.

If anyone deserves his own thread as an underclassman, it's this guy.  Absolutely incredible player.  

I don't like the three-year rule.  It's completely arbitrary.  If you're old enough to serve in the military and vote then you're old enough to play in the NFL.

That's my 2c.

ESPN's Tom Rinaldi reported that #SouthCarolina DE Jadeveon Clowney ran a 4.5 40 at 270 pounds during the Gamecocks' recent winter workouts.

Read this a couple of days ago. Insane.

South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney is dealing with bone spurs in his right foot. Analysis: Clowney previously planned to have a clean-up surgery following the college season, but opted against it when his foot responded well to rest and rehab. "It just depends on what the teams want, that get me in the draft," said Clowney. "They want me to get it, I'll get it. If they don't, it shouldn't bother me." Clowney has promised "amazing" Scouting Combine test numbers.

This warms my heart. So many top prospects opt out of the combine but Clowney himself is going to put up or shut up. I love it.

So, he is going to be a OLB in the 3-4 I would assume... That makes him less appealing to me as an IDP target...

Sucks, two of the top DE's (Clowney and Ford) are now slated to become OLB's in 3-4 DE's...  vote no

Exactly Chris. Makes it harder. Would have liked to have seen his value as an IDP target if he went to a traditional 4-3 defense.

What I'm reading is they expect him to "initially" be an OLB. That is a Rick Smith quote.

Everyone is saying he needs a little more weight to be a DE. They expect him to gain it and be there in a year or so.

I really wondered why you would take someone 1.01 that was not going to exactly fit your scheme and be more situational. This makes more sense if they really believe he can add a few pounds and still be as effective as he is.

NFL draft insider Tony Pauline has heard from a "number of people" that there is "serious concern" about Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney's surgically repaired knee.

Pauline cites "numerous sources, including those close to the Texans" when cautioning to "not expect much" from Clowney in 2015. "He may struggle to ever regain full health from the microfracture surgery," Pauline writes. As of late January, Clowney could bear no weight on his knee. He also had the knee scoped before his microfracture, in addition to sports hernia surgery last June. Clowney appeared in only four games as a rookie.

Never liked this kid. So glad I wasnt in an IDP league to be tempted to take him. I will never trade for him in any league I am in.

True! I hate how a lot of these NFL teams draft these players and then move them out of their comfort zone. I mean the dude is a true DE, so leave him there and watch him tear up the defensive front.

You can't make this shit up.

Quote :
Plagued by injuries during his initial year in the NFL, Jadeveon Clowney can add another one to the list which already includes hernia surgery, a concussion, and eventually a knee injury requiring microfracture surgery.

SportsRadio 610 has learned that Clowney was bitten by teammate D.J. Swearinger’s pit bull last week. Police records obtained describe a bite to Clowney’s right arm that sent him to a Pearland emergency room.

Swearinger’s dog broke the skin on the right arm of Clowney with the bite according to the report. Further investigation by the agency indicated the dog’s vaccinations are good until early April.
The bite was characterized to SportsRadio 610 by a member of the Pearland police department as a “minor bite” and no further medical information on Clowney was noted in the report.

Houston Texans DE Jadeveon Clowney (knee) is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

So does he redeem himself at all this season?

The Houston Chronicle reports Jadeveon Clowney is sidelined with "minor soreness" in his knee.
Quote :
There haven't really been any "minor" issues with Clowney to this point in his career, but the Texans don't seem concerned for now. Per reporter Aaron Wilson, Clowney could resume practicing "as soon as next week."

Missed 15 games and has 4.5 in his first 2 years. If he misses more this year or doesn't have double digits is it safe to put him in the bust category for the time being? Or is he already there because of where he was drafted?
