Just because his measurables are amazing doesn't mean he will be a great player. He doesn't have an inner fire like Watt, neither does Mario, but Mario has a better technical ability to split double teams and get to the QB. Just my two pennies.
Bad Motor? He didn't want to get hurt, mission accomplishe.
Character issues? Other than being a 20 yr old that likes to drive cars fast, what character issues does Clowney have?
Clowney is more of a quick twitch pass rusher than MW ever was will be. MW has more of a power game and feasts on TE/bad OT's for his sacks. Clowney is more like Peppers at this stage of his career than MW.
