College star will play with college team, amid suggestions he will miss 2013 season to avoid injury.
Jadeveon Clowney is a fantastic specimen who is clearly ready to make an impact on the NFL. Had Clowney been eligible for the draft, he would be the consensus number one pick, without any argument believe many experts.
The reason why Clowney must stay in college? NFL rules stipulate that a player must spend a minimum of three years out of high school before being eligible. Sadly for NFL fans everywhere, Clowney has spent only two years out of High School.
There were rumours this week that the 20 year-old would skip the entire season and train with NFL calibre coaches, as a way of keeping up his physical attributes whilst severely lowering his risk severe injury.
The reason behind the suggestions is simple: Clowney has the potential to earn millions now, if he was to injure his knee, he could lose those millions before even making it.
Whilst the rumours will no doubt just stay rumours, there is no reason to question the current NFL policy, and whether changes should be made based on personal player profiles.
