11:13 AM ET 02.24 | After lighting up the 40-yard dash at the 2014 NFL Scouting Combine, South Carolina star Jadeveon Clowney decided to skip the on-field position drills that the remainder of the defensive linemen were going through. Clowney told Willie McGinest of the NFL Network that his hip flexor was tightening up, so he decided to bypass the drills and focus on the broad and vertical jumps. As soon as Clowney decided to pass on the position drills, Mike Mayock and the NFL Network crew expressed their unhappiness with Clowney for skipping the drills, which plays right into the narrative that he has a less than stellar work ethic. Regardless of what happens the remainder of his time in Indianapolis, Clowney has solidified himself as a top pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

This guy is not putting his best for forward for scouts... lackluster season where I believe he said he'd show his worth in the combines... note he's skipping that, so is he hiding something or does he just have a crappy work ethic?

Sounds like a real prima donna. He'd be a position coach's nightmare.

But the QBs are allowed to skip certain drills and are not considered lazy.

Agreed, his work ethic and attitude are very suspect based on all public indications for the past year.

Said he'd like to slip to the Atlanta pick. He just might.

If Albert Haynesworth was Fat Albert, does that make Clowney Fast Albert?

Great minds think alike and so do we

I know he's an end, but he reminds me of Dan "Big Duddy" Wilkinson.
