Jadeveon Clowney knows he'll be the number one pick

Jadeveon Clowney is an insane physical specimen. The former South Carolina Gamecock's star is expected to go number one in the draft, and it seems that the big man knows it.

After completing his pro day last month, the defensive end has revealed that he won't be going for any private workouts with teams before the draft, Monday Morning QuarterBack revealed.

Apparently this is all due to the precedent set by former Oregon Ducks tackle Brandon Thomas. Thomas tore his ACL while at the New Orleans Saints facility, during a series of drills.

But now Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller has his own say on what's happening in the Clowney Camp. Miller says the belief around the league is that Clowney will no longer be going on pre-draft visits after being informed that he will be the No. 1 overall pick of the Houston Texans.

This should be taken with a pinch of salt however, as Clowney will still actually be meeting with organizations and talking to multiple coaches and GM's.

Would a player who really knows he is going to be the number one pick put himself through different meetings every single day?

Will teams actually be turned off by these revelations? I wouldn't think so in all honesty. If a team loves Clowney - like a lot do - then surely they would watch and study the three years of footage he has laid before him in making their decision.... Not just an hour long workout with a position coach.

And Clowney is well within his right not to take part. He has been saving himself for the big league for a while in an attempt to avoid injury, and undoing all that hard work would be counter-productive for him and his family.
