South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney told South Carolina Gamecocks beat writer Josh Kendall that he guarantees he will win the Nagursky Trophy, for best defensive player, next season and that afterwards he will enter the draft.

There doesn’t have to be any more speculation, and Clowney has officially told NFL teams to start salivating over him. I would be willing to bet that Clowney will be a Top 5 pick and certainly the most sought-after defensive end in an NFL Draft since Mario Williams. Clowney has the potential to be the next Julius Peppers, and every team would love to have that on their team.
