South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney is leaving for NFL. But his effort and flaws has been in question by many pro scouts. The same criticism went for future hall of famer WR Randy Moss back in the day. According to CBS Sports, one scout sees those comparisons...
quote:

“He’s a modern day Randy Moss,” said an AFC East scout on Clowney. “J.C. doesn’t have the same type of criminal background as Randy did when he was his age, but the dependence on natural talent and problematic effort concerns are very similar. Difference is, Clowney won’t fall out of the top-seven like Randy did.”

The “effort” concerns don’t exist because his statistics dipped in 2013 compared to last season, but rather because he appeared tentative and fatigued too often during his junior year. Was he playing not to get hurt or are there legitimate effort concerns?

“In high school, he was the best player on the field. Same in the SEC,” the scout added. “But he needs to realize that won’t be the case in the league. If he wants to have a career longer than a few seasons, the kid needs to wake up, add some glass to his diet and understand that it’ll take a lot more work during the week.”
