Jadeveon Clowney Draws Mixed Twitter Reaction On Pro Day

Jadeveon Clowner drew a split reaction on his Pro DayJadeveon Clowney has a chance to be the number one overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft, but a mixed reaction from his Pro Day didn’t help his cause.

The Houston Texans will pick first in May. They are a team with a number of needs including defensive line, Clowney’s position, and quarterback, Johnny Manziel’s position.

A number of analysts believe Clowney, with his raw ability and unmatched athletic prowess, should go first without second thought. Others believe Clowney lacks the work ethic to make it in the NFL.

Jadeveon Clowney’s Pro Day was a chance for him to prove his naysayers wrong. If you followed his workout on Twitter, you would know that didn’t exactly happen.


As you can see, the reaction was pretty split. Fans of the teams picking in the top five are sold on Clowney, as are most analysts, but sports fans in general seem unsure.

What does all this mean for Clowney’s draft stock? Probably nothing. If the Texans want to take him in May they probably will. Same thing goes for Manziel, or even Blake Bortles.

Did Jadeveon Clowney prove anything on his Pro Day then? He proved his hype. He is a very exciting player that draws a very split reaction. It will be interesting to see where he lands in May.
