‘Tis the season for anonymous attacks on NFL prospects to be lobbed. Every team engages in mind games with the aid of the media. Considering that fact, it shouldn’t be surprising even consensus top pick Jadeveon Clowney can’t escape the Doomsday forecasts.
“He’s spoiled, and he’s lazy,’’ the NFC personnel man said. “He’s never worked hard a day in his life, now all of a sudden you’re going to give him a bunch of money and expect him to work hard. I don’t see it.’’
Despite his opinion of the former South Carolina star, our fearless exec expects Clowney’s name to be one of the first called on draft day.
“Oh, he’s going to be a high pick,’’ the personnel man said. “Some team will fall in love with him. But wait and see, just wait and see. I just don’t think you can count on him. I’m betting the under on him.’’
They’ll have to write a similar plot line into the inevitable Draft Day sequel. That’s excellent villainy.
