08:18 AM ET 02.12 | With the first pick in the 2013 NFL draft, would the Kansas City Chiefs have taken South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney? The Chiefs might not select Clowney even if he were eligible. But he'd be a contender. If he played basketball or baseball, if he specialized in golf or tennis, if he boxed or fought in a steel cage, he'd already be a pro. ... If you're Clowney, what do you do? Give the school everything you have and try to upend the Crimson Tide? Play not to get hurt? Or sign with an agent, get assigned coaches and trainers and spend the season pumping up and preparing for the pros? If Clowney doesn't return to Columbia, South Carolina would be cheated. At the moment, only Clowney is.

Your worth probably not much. Mine either. But Clowney could sit out and still be a top pick. Heck, Tyanne Mattieu was invited to the combine after all his troubles and sitting out a year.

Clowney could sit out but it would negatively affect his draft status. He'd be further behind in strength, conditioning and technique. NFL gets the top 3% of college players and it normally takes 3 years of S&C for a player to crack the starting lineup and make a difference.

Yeah, and Maurice Clarett didn't do too bad, either. No, wait...

Tajh Boyd would love to see Clowney sit out the year.
