clowney better, but not by much.. quicker 1st step.
Lugs says RN has the better motor at this stage.
He is exactly like him because he got my hopes up of getting a game changing defensive end only to crush my hopes in the end.
IMO Clowny is much more athletic, significantly quicker, and had better skill with his hands!!
Nkemdiche is not on Clowneys level. Don't get me wrong he will be a good player but not a once a generation player like Clowny IMO.
Seen them both play in person.
Clowny also strikes me and more focused and driven also!
Clowney is much more of a freak of nature. Kind of like Usain Bolt. Just that rare.
There was never a question about anybody being close to Clowney when he was the #1 recruit.
This. Clowney had 29.5 sacks his senior year of high school. Nkemdiche had 5-6 sacks this season.
It does appear that Nkemdiche is having a great week of practice thus far at the Under Armour All- Star game.....but I saw him play 3 times this year and 2 of the games he was single blocked for much of the game and didn't have any sacks. So not sure but perhaps the All Star game has motivated him.
Nkemdiche is about 285 pounds in 2012 (5-6 sacks) and was around 255 in 2010 (18 sacks) and 265 in 2011 (18 sacks). I think he's a DT in a 4-3 (where as Clowney is a DE) and Nkemdiche would be a DE in a 3-4 (where Clowney would probably be a Jack LB).
You get out of it what you put into it!
Good post. They are different players. With that said. I'd take Clowney every day of the week.
Will he get the development at Ole M?
I LOOK BETTER IN CRIMSON!
If Clowney gets in the right program in the NFL, he will be a HOF shoe in. He needs the type of place that has a culture of winning as a team. The reason I say that is that you can just see the every-single-play effort from guys who have bought into winning as a team. The Pats are an easy example, but I'd also include the Ravens. If Clowney gave that kind of effort on every down, he would be legendary well before his career was over. I know he goes hard most of the time, but there are times he relaxes.
I would love to have RN, but he isn't ever going to be as talented as Clowney.
clowney reminds me of pre injury jevon kearse
Roll Tide to Her
Not very well
I hope hes not close to clowney ! seeing how he will proably end up playing for the competition.
Kearse is a good comparison but he reminds me more of a faster Julius Peppers. Guy will put up Aldon Smith #s in the league as a rookie.
Bolt? He isn't anything special. just ask Retard err Denard Robinson. (g)
