For the better part of the last three years no one could slow down South Carolina Gamecocks defensive end, Jadeveon Clowney, and presumptive top-five first round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, but in the past month, the police sure have been able to slow him down.

Clowney was ticketed for his second speeding ticket this month, according to The State earlier Thursday morning after going 84 in a 55 mph zone. Clowney was caught doing 110pmh in a 70pmh zone earlier this month.

Clowney was beset by injuries in his junior season, a year that began with Heisman aspirations and talk of Derrick Thomas’ single-season sack record being in jeopardy. However, after 13 sacks a season ago and 24 tackles for loss in a consensus All-American campaign that saw him win the Ted Hendricks award, Clowney was limited to a paltry three sacks.

South Carolina and Clowney play the Wisconsin Badgers on New Year’s Day in the Capital One Bowl in what likely will be his final game in a Gamecock uniform.

The biggest question surrounding Clowney is whether his disappointing junior season will drop him from the No. 1 pick in the draft where he was considered a lock for the better part of a year.

If he moves as fast at the combine and pro day as he has on the highway this month, that top pick still may be his after all.
