Merril Hoge: Jadeveon Clowney is 'not a very good football player'
Despite being projected by some as the top player taken in the upcoming NFL Draft, football analyst Merril Hoge doesn't believe Jadeveon Clowney is a good football player.
You can see and hear Hoge make such comments in his appearance on SportsCenter from Monday. Aside from calling the former South Carolina standout "not a very good football player," Hoge also went on the record as saying Clowney's fundamentals are "atrocious."
In fairness, Clowney's fundamentals may have some room for improvement. The same goes for his work ethic. But there's no denying his athleticism and the fact that his physical gifts are second to none among any other player in the NFL Draft. This fact alone makes Hoge's comments seem a bit extreme.
