09:19 AM ET 12.28 | Video from a traffic stop shows South Carolina star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney telling an officer he had just three minutes to make it to the stadium when he was stopped for doing almost 30 mph over the speed limit. The dash camera video was released Friday by Columbia police, a day after Clowney was stopped on Interstate 26 about 6 miles from Williams-Brice Stadium. The Gamecocks were gathering there to travel to Florida for the Capital One Bowl against Wisconsin on Jan. 1. The officer tells Clowney he was clocked doing 84 mph in a 55 mph zone. Clowney tells him he was trying to get to the stadium before the team left. At the end of the video, Clowney switches places and lets a passenger drive.

His agent will have to do a lot of hustling on draft day.

NFL teams often only look at raw talent and think all the other things can be "overcome".

He's an over-hyped player on an over-hyped team in an over-hyped conference, so his rationale for speeding is headline news. smh

A good agent will still be able to sell him in the (lower) first round though. Some GM ego will think that Clowney's a "project" but "an unbelievable athlete" and throw down. Three years from now, Clowney's on the street, having spent his money and washed out.

He's an emerging NFL pinhead!

the CLOWN was never known as a "smart" person---- he better get picked up by an NFL team --- since he won't have a college degree like most of his SEC morons......

Too bad America's Funniest Videos went off the air.

Any one with a stake in Clowney's future should hope he's well-prepared for the combine... a poor showing will only reinforce the majority of the opinions on this thread.
