NFL Draft: Jadeveon Clowney’s NFL Draft Promo Video

The hype surrounding Jadeveon Clowney is real. The Defensive Lineman out of South Carolina is expected to go No.1 in the NFL Draft. Some draft experts are calling him a talent that only comes around every 20 years or so. I agree with that to a certain extent, but teams are concerned with his motor. No matter what people say or think it would be foolish not to take him with the top...

Video: ESPN’s Strange NFL Draft Promo For Johnny Manziel Features Quarterback Alone In Middle Of A Cornfield

One of the worst aspects of the NFL Draft occurring later this year than it has ever been–the first round begins Thursday, May 8–is that analysts have more time than they’ve ever had to nitpick prospects.

Todd McShay says he’ll quit based on when Jadeveon Clowney is drafted
