At this point I'm starting to feel bad for South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. Any player that ESPN props up on a pedestal, especially a college football one, eventually gets torn apart. It's going to happen.
Is Clowney great? Yes of course. But he's not nearly the flawless prospect that a lot of people are making him out to be. He's not perfect on or off the field. And unfortunately ESPN and the media will find these things once the season starts. And despite what the media says he is not a lock for #1 pick. He's not a once-in-a-generation type player. Sure he has some great hits and plays but watch the whole game while focusing on him and determine how much of a "can't miss prospect" he really is.
It's only 6 days away. We get to see "The Freak" on ESPN vs North Carolina. The proverbial rise and eventual fall of Clowney will be yet another ESPN production that will be can't miss television. Awesome.
