Jadeveon Clowney’s agent told him to shut down workouts

South Carolina’s Jadeveon Clowney took a ton of heat from scouts and pundits when he decided to terminate any future individual workouts for team a few weeks ago. But now Clowney’s agent has come forward and claimed that it was his call to do so, since he believed teams had more than enough information on the phenomenal pass rusher.

Jadeveon ClowneyClowney’s agent, Bus Cook, was convinced that there was no way his client could have improved his stock, so having him continue to work out several times before the draft would have been counter-productive. Frankly, he’s right. After all the game tape Clowney put together, on top of his work at the combine and his pro day, what else do teams need to know? Meeting with teams is one thing, working out is just repetitive.

While people like Merril Hoge continue to insist Clowney isn’t all that great, what we’ve seen from him repeatedly on the field flies in the face of that. He’s a 6-foot-6, 266-pound pass-rushing machine with incredible physical gifts. Does he take a play off every now and then? Sure, but so do 95 percent of 21-year-olds. Is he a fiery, vocal leader? Not yet, but he’s still maturing.

The Houston Texans hold the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. While they don’t necessarily “need” another pass rusher, if they don’t trade down taking Clowney is probably the team’s best bet. If The Texans somehow pass on Clowney, there is virtually no chance he lasts past No. 2. Either the St. Louis Rams will take him, or someone will trade up to snag him.

Clowney is easily the best defensive player in this year’s draft and regardless of whether or not he did private workouts, we all know what he can do on the field. The fact that his agent shut down those workouts makes sense when you think about it. I doubt Clowney would have had a problem showing off his talents to teams. But there was no reason to, we all know who and what he is.
