    The thing is if Clowney gets injured and drops from the #1 pick to say the 3rd rd, he loses the difference between the #1 pick and being a 3rd rd pick.

    He cant just sit out the season either and be eligible for the 2014 draft. He has to play for the Gamecocks. I guess he could show up for spring practice and get kicked off of the team and be eligible

    Sure he could. Clowney would be 3 years removed from his high school graduation and draft eligible. He could leave school right now, hire an agent, and start prepping for the 2014 draft.
