If you haven’t heard of South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, you surely will by tomorrow. In his team’s victory during The Outback Bowl against the University of Michigan, the Wolverines were incorrectly awarded a fresh set of downs after a fourth-down measurement was misread.
This angered Clowney.
On the next play, Clowney ran past Taylor Lewan (probably the best tackle in next year’s NFL draft) and blew up RB Vincent Smith to a degree we rarely see. He destroyed Smith and the ball came loose, with South Carolina recovering.
And for those of you wondering if this could become a Quentin Coryatt situation, it shouldn’t. Clowney is a premier player and shouldn’t see his draft stock boost just because of this one play. Sure as hell won’t hurt it though. Check it out.
Oh, and for those of you who don’t know who Coryatt is, here is his big hit. He was taken No. 2 overall in the 1992 NFL draft by the Indianapolis Colts.
