      Warren Sapp questions Jadeveon Clowney's work ethic By Dan Hanzus Around the League Writer    NFL.comPublished: April 21, 2014 at 11:33 p.m. 655b1788-4b40-4141-81fd-b5ac1d6bc08e_zpsa85b497a.pngJadeveon Clowney and girlfriend Kirsten Hardy, a Hawks cheerleaderJadeveon Clowney continues to be a lightning rod as the 2014 NFL Draft approaches.On Monday's edition of "NFL Total Access," NFL Media's Heath Evans and Warren Sapp expressed their disapproval of Clowney's decision to decline on-field workouts in the run-up to the draft. Clowney opted out of the workouts after Clemson offensive lineman Brandon Thomas suffered a torn ACL during a team workout."There's just so many little things about this kid that deter you from getting on his side," Evans said. "This kid turns down private workouts? He says, 'Well, I don't want to get hurt.' You should be training harder on the day that you're not at a private workout than how hard they would work you on the private workout.""That's the real issue with me," said Sapp, who believes the Texans should select Teddy Bridgewater No. 1 overall, not Clowney. "What else is he doing, not waking up? The next job you have is rushing the quarterback, young man, getting ready for the NFL. If you wake up every morning and you're not prepared to go out and do the things you have to be either be an outside linebacker or pass rushing specialist, what else is there?"You can blow your knee out walking your doggy," Sapp continued. "So why would you not work out for a team that has twenty million-plus dollars for you?"The question is whether the Texans have the same concerns as Evans and Sapp. If they do, you can safely assume they'll go elsewhere with the No. 1 overall pick.

      Some women are so good people often overlook other flaws like flat chests or buck teeth as those things can be fixed. Having skills on the other hand cannot be bought with money.

      Interesting statements considering what Sapp gone through prior to his draft.

      Sapp had some last minute marijuana rumors, but I don't believe his love for the game/work ethic/motor was ever in question. He didn't let his coach and teammates down in his final year by only playing occasionally when he felt like it. He didn't coast through the combine and sit out the drills he didn't feel like doing. He didn't declare he was done working out for teams a month before the draft. Sapp may me many things, but half assed is not one of them. He always gives 110% at what he is doing. Exact opposite of this primadonna Clown. I'm glad that some folks are questioning this kid. I'm tired of seeing everyone hold him up on his throne when he is really just a overhyped lazy punk.

      This is such a non-story. The reality is that Clowney is going to be taken 1, 2, or 3, and most likely 1. He doesn’t need to work out for anybody – he did it all on his pro day. If a team can’t figure out if he’s physically good enough or not at this point, they ought to fire the entire staff.

      To each his own Booker. To me, if an organization wants to give you $25M+ guaranteed, and is considering sacrificing valuable draft picks to move up for you…then you go do whatever the fug they ask you to do. Clowney supporters will take your stance and say it’s nothing and it doesn’t matter, but an unbiased realist can see that there is a clear pattern of selfishness and questionable work ethic with Clowney. He acts like he is special and bigger than the game. He does what he wants, when he wants….and an organization has to be comfortable with that before they make a huge investment.

      I wish people would on this board would try and get past the "hater/suck-up/slurper" stuff. I think Clowney is going to likely be the best defender in this draft, but he's not necessarily favorite of mine (like you, a lot of my favorites in this draft are guys who really aren't the top picks). I'm not a huge fan of his "plan" necessarily, but it's not excessively selfish - it's totally rational. It's business. It's not about supporting Clowney - I'd say the same if it was Andrew Luck, Megatron, Suh, or any other number of players who had virtually zero chance of going outside of the top 3. Look, I get the idea that teams have to be comfortable with Clowney's work ethic. He's not canceling visits, or medicals, he's simply not going to have the DL put him through the paces. By all accounts he destroyed his pro day. People know what he can do physically. Is there some magical drill that's going to expose a new weakness? Of course not.

      And you are again missing the point. It does not matter what is accomplished from the meetings and the workouts. He is an unemployed 21 year old kid. He has billion dollar organizations interested in giving him tens of millions of dollars to play a game for a living. If they want him to jump through a fuggin hoop, then he needs to do it and be happy about it because it is a great and rare opportunity to play in the NFL and this is how it works. His attitude that he doesn’t have to do what everyone before him has done, and that he is somehow above it all….is horse sh!t. Plain and simple.

      I don't think there is any chance of that happening. He will be long gone by #7.  That is why I don't get too invested in the argument of him dogging it, or playing it safe, or whatever.  He will go top 3 if not numero uno.

I get what Sapp is saying but I also understand the other perspective as well. What else, physically, does Clowny have to prove? Nothing. He has elite physical skills. So what is the point of the workout then? To gauge his motor? Is private workout going to accomplish that?

      I just think when you already have a lot of people questioning your work ethic and your love for the game and accusing you of being a lazy diva that only does the minimum work required…..you should probably do whatever you can to prove those people wrong, not add fuel to fire by half assing the combine and deciding not to do individual workouts. For me personally, I pride myself on my work ethic and my dependability. It would bother me if my reputation was that of a lazy prima donna. Doesn’t seem to bother the Clown though. It’s not going to effect his $$$, and it’s pretty obvious that the $$$ is all he cares about.

      Add in Megatron who only ran the 40 at the combine and didnt do any of those private workouts either. I find it quite funny that sooooooo many veteran Red Board posters bought all of the bad press on Clowney ... when it is obvious to anyone watching that his foot was injured. It was so bad in some of the games this year he was clearly ineffective because of the injury and should have been sat down but his coach demanded that he play.I have to seriously question the evaluation skills of anyone who cant see the foot injury. They couldnt see the major issue with ASJ either and it turns out that he crumpled to the ground anytime a defender got even close to him because he played all year on a broken foot!!!!I know Clowney is going to be a great player. Its going to be fun to watch for all of us.

      Spurrier demanded clowney to play? As spurrier said, clwoneys issue is he thinks he can just show up on gameday.

      Just like Steve "tee time" Spurrier in the NFL.

      RGIII declined to workout for the Colts 2 yrs ago, and I believe he didn't any private workouts at all. So I guess this isn't unprecendented.

      Exactly. Except RG3 not doing workouts was a "business decision" and not an indictment of his work ethic. It didn't help push a narrative so it was ignored by the media. And not sure I remember anyone on this board saying RG3 was a risk because of it? ... I hope Clowney comes in and wrecks shop. People giving advice from their high horse as we work for <$75K a year, like that's not 25% of a game check to Clowney potentially  (and I usually like JDubs posts) ..... Like these detractors wouldn't do everything possible to solidify $19-22M. High Motor = DTN/Clayborn ... I, for one, would have no problem with trading both for Clowney in a heartbeat. He works out for teams, he goes #1... he doesn't, STL gets another bidding war, and he's gone at 2. Nothing to gain by putting on a pony show for teams who won't pull the trigger anyway (Detroit for example). Also, Deion Sanders did the same thing and limited meeting with teams who he thought would be around to draft him, top 5 teams only if I recall correctly... Good thing he didn't turn out to be a Pro Bowler/All-Pro/HOFer or anything.

      Add in Megatron who only ran the 40 at the combine and didnt do any of those private workouts either. I find it quite funny that sooooooo many veteran Red Board posters bought all of the bad press on Clowney ... when it is obvious to anyone watching that his foot was injured. It was so bad in some of the games this year he was clearly ineffective because of the injury and should have been sat down but his coach demanded that he play.I have to seriously question the evaluation skills of anyone who cant see the foot injury. They couldnt see the major issue with ASJ either and it turns out that he crumpled to the ground anytime a defender got even close to him because he played all year on a broken foot!!!!I know Clowney is going to be a great player. Its going to be fun to watch for all of us.

      1. All you do is make excuses in every thread about Clowney. Seriously. Go back and look at your Clowney posts over the past week. It's just a long list of excuses. 2. You are trying to spin the foot as good thing that explains his sh!tty play? Really? It's a serious issue with his foot that has been bothering him since highschool and he was suppose to get surgery this offseason and will eventually require surgery but appears to be putting it off. The foot is another negative bro. Not an excuse.

      You are waaaaay off. All I do is analyze what I see. If Aaron Donald had a bad foot and tried to play through it I would say the exact same things if his tape from pre injury was as good as Clowneys. I dont read all the negative press stories either. My opinion is not clouded.
