Jadeveon Clowney was seen as a clear-cut first-round draft pick and is thought to be one of the NFL’s top defensive prospects in years, but price per head sportsbooks learned that Dee Ford is not impressed.
Ford, in an interview on Sunday with SiriusXM radio, said that he sees himself as being a better player than Clowney, and he compared the former South Carolina star to a “blind dog in a meat market”, something that did not go down very well with many fans.
“I’m better [than Clowney],” Ford, who is also a pass-rushing draft prospect, said in the interview. “Let’s put it like this. People like to talk about size all the time. Size is pretty much overrated in my eyes.
“You can look at guys like Robert Mathis, Elvis Dumervil, Von Miller. These are 6-2 guys and under. People are just looking at the fact that [Clowney] is a physical specimen. Honestly if you watch the film, he plays like a blind dog in a meat market basically.”
Price per head sportsbooks found out that Scouts, Inc considered Clowney to be the top overall draft prospect, and pay per head services saw that in ESPN Insider Todd McShay’s latest mock draft he was slated to go with the No. 1 pick to the Houston Texans .
On Saturday, Clowney, who is 6-feet tall and weighs 266-pounds, said at the NFL scouting combine that he would like to be “one of the greatest of all-time.”
But pay per head services found out that last season, a 6-foot-2 Ford, who was able to record 10.5 sacks at Auburn, said that his technique is better than Clowney’s, telling any skeptics to “go watch film.”
“I play with a lot of technique,” Ford said in the interview. “I watch a lot of film. These are the things I do, and it shows up.”
