This kid is going to be a hall of famer. He is scary. Too bad he isnt in this draft.
If he gains so more weight and stays as quick then becomes much more powerful then maybe. I think he will be very good if he stays healthy. Reggie White...probably not.
Has there ever been another Reggie White?
No. Not that I've seen.
He could literally be the best player of all time. He was that good.
He is 6-6, 256 and only 19 years old. He pushed projected 2013 NFL starting OT Taylor Lewan around in the game against Michigan.
The better comparison is DeMarcus Ware. He is already a better college player than Ware and that's against a higher level of competition.
Cowboys 2013 campaign: Suck for Clowney. I don't care if it takes going 0-16, I want this guy opposite DWare!!
Clowney's game isn't Reggie White like. If you're just talking best pass rusher, then fine, but Reggie was more than a pass rusher.
At 6'5 291, he could have played DT, especially since his era was before most o-linemen were 300+ pounds. Even in today's NFL, he could play DT in a tampa 2 scheme.
The two closest guys would be Julius Peppers and Mario Williams, but neither have the power and strength Reggie had and even though both are legitimate pro-bowl players, they are literally half the player Reggie White was.
Erik Williams made Reggie White look pretty basic all the time until the nfl put in a rule specifically for Erik.
what rule was this?
Erik's vicious slap to the head. lol Guy almost knocked White out a few times.
The hands to the face rule.
pretty much, you have to remember this was early 90s. when they were still allowed to play football. Thats when nfl started to get soft
look at the :46 mark. you saw this most of the time when Erik williams and Reggie White met
Lie-downie for Clowney?
He reminds me of Bruce Smith. JJ Watt reminds me of Reggie White.
Love seeing Irvin prancing around on the field in that video. Also, how beautiful was it to see the holes that Emmit was running through...remind u of todays team? Big E Williams used to go all out Nuclear against Reggie White...Do we have anyone on the team currently that is even close to Big E even after he wrecked his knee is his auto accident?
Super Super talent those teams had, I dont think we will ever see such dominance again.
And oh...Seeing Favre reminded me oh so much of Romo.
