While NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt thinks South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is a good player, he doesn't think he's deserving of the top pick in the 2014 NFL draft. Brandt says Clowney's been over-publicized, and thinks if people "watched him and graded him on every game and every play, they would see a strong player but not really a Heisman Trophy candidate or a No. 1 draft pick." He's definitely a top 10 player, but not a no. 1 pick, Brandt says. "I went back and watched tape of all of Clowney's games in his first two seasons," Brandt wrote, via NFL.com.

Well, that didn’t take long. South Carolina LB Jadeveon Clowney appears to get into the Tennessee backfield unblocked to destroy RB Najion Neal. He did get to him unblocked…because he got off the ball too quickly to get blocked by #74 LT Antonio Richardson. This dude is just a freak.
