South Carolina defensive end–and potential number one overall pick–Jadeveon Clowney took to the field in Columbia, South Carolina for his Pro Day to show the scouts one last time that he has all the tangible traits they’re looking for, and he definitely succeeded in that department.
Clowney was put through various drill by the coaches in attendance that accentuated every part of his game.
Afterwards, Clowney seemed rather pleased with what he had done when he sat down with the NFL Network.
“I think I showed them I’m a fighter,” Clowney told the NFL Network’s Mike Mayock after his workout. “That I can push through anything.”
While you never like to exaggerate when it comes to Pro Day performances, Clowney definitely showed today that he’s more than deserving of being chosen number one overall by the Houston Texans, assuming they stay in that spot and not trade it away.
But, whatever the case is, the Texans have a month to figure out what they’re going to do with that pick, and there was nothing out there on that field today that convinced them to skip on Clowney.
