Jadeveon Clowney is slated as one of the top picks, if not the top pick, in just about every mock NFL draft out there. But at least one NFL executive isn't impressed with the South Carolina defensive end. Or so he says ... anonymously. “He's spoiled, and he's lazy," an NFC personnel director told nj.com. “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. " He added of Clowney: “Oh, he's going to be a high pick.

All of us who enjoy watching South Carolina super-stud Jadeveon Clowney play (and plow) are relieved to know his season is not going to be derailed for illegal targeting by some rapper. Clowney is, knuckles down, the nation's best defensive player and a key cog in South Carolina's BCS hopes this season. There were concerns the defensive end might have broken NCAA rules by talking to superstar rapper Jay-Z, who now fancies himself a sports agent looking to represent future No. 1 overall choices in the NFL draft.

The NFL might be a quarterback league, but that wasn't reflected in last year's draft. Only one quarterback was selected in the first round - EJ Manuel, picked 16th by Buffalo - and one each in the next two rounds. This year should be a return to the familiar, as the draft is rich with quarterback prospects. This mock draft projects three quarterbacks will be taken in the first five picks May 8, and five in the entire first round. The wild card is Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel, who could be the No. 1 overall pick of Houston, or conceivably could tumble all the way out of the first round.

South Carolina Coach Steve Spurrier appeared to be at wit's end with Jadeveon Clowney on Saturday night, seemingly questioning the star defensive end's dedication to the team after the player notified his coach just before kickoff that he wasn't going to play because of a rib injury. A day later, though, Spurrier said he was frustrated not so much with the fact that Clowney was sitting out but with how he learned about it. “Usually the doctor or the trainer comes and tells you a guy will be out,” Spurrier said Sunday.

Jadeveon Clowney may have had a down year for South Carolina this season, but you better believe the 6-foot-6, 274-pound defensive end is still on NFL scouts' radar. Unfortunately for the projected high first-round draft pick, he was also on the radar of a highway patrolman along a South Carolina interstate on Saturday. Around 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Clowney was ticketed for allegedly driving his Chrysler 300 at 110 mph in a 70 mph zone northbound on Interstate 77 in Fairfield County, about 25 miles north of Columbia.

This could be the year Clemson gets over the program slump hump and wins its first national title since 1981. Most years, we can't wait for a season to get started. But with Clemson we also can't wait for it to end. The 2013 public relations campaign recently got back-loaded when Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina's behemoth defensive lineman, unloaded on Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd. The schools have had a rivalry dating to post-Reconstruction and Clowney was happy to contribute to the conversation.

Turn out the lights, the parity's over. The Bowl Championship Series era of equal access and catering to college football's "little guys" ended Monday night at the Rose Bowl when Florida State ended the Southeastern Conference's winning streak. The new playoff format will weed out the weak, make the big conferences richer and the small conferences poorer. Why do you think Chris Petersen finally left Boise State for Washington? There are exciting times ahead for everyone except the Sun Belt Conference and the GoDaddy.com Bowl.

Everyone deserves a second chance, or a sixth. Coach Steve Spurrier has never been the patient type. In fact, quarterback Stephen Garcia might be the only fool Spurrier has ever suffered gladly. This is prickly because Garcia throws a nice spiral and is the key to possibly pushing South Carolina over the top in the Southeastern Conference. Garcia, suspended five times, was reinstated earlier this month just in time for opening of training camp. Asked at SEC media days why he keeps sticking with Garcia, Spurrier quipped, "I guess we don't want to kick him out for stupidity.

INDIANAPOLIS - There will be intrigue, just as there is every year with the NFL scouting combine, as the nation's top college football prospects look to turn the heads of their future employers with size, speed and strength. But this year's event promises a little history to go along with the mystery. Missouri defensive end Michael Sam, on track to become the first openly gay NFL player, will be working out for teams, as will a record 103 players who opted to forgo their senior seasons and make the early plunge into the draft pool.

Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will forgo his senior season with the No. 18 Cardinals and make himself available for the NFL draft. Projected as a first-round selection and possibly the first quarterback taken this spring, Bridgewater completed 71% of his passes for 3,970 yards and a school-record 31 touchdowns this season, including a career-best 447 yards with three TDs in Saturday's 36-9 rout of Miami in the Russell Athletic Bowl....

Here is a capsule summary of Jadeveon Clowney's year so far: He knocked the helmet off a Michigan player in a bowl game, ran the 40-yard dash in 4.46 seconds, called out rival quarterbacks for being scared and tipped over a blocking sled in practice. The Gamecocks' star defensive end doesn't play football … he plays wrecking ball. Most years, national title hopes are built around a star quarterback or running back or the overall strength of a particular unit. This year, maybe for the first time, title hopes have been tethered to one 6-foot-6, 272-pound defensive end. "He and Johnny Football [Manziel]
