Are you an idiot or just don't know how to read. I said IF he played like he did in the Outback Bowl in the rest of his games Clowney would be compared to him. But he didn't so he's not. I was pointing out his potential not his actual career to this point. Please learn how to read before you argue a point.

Anytime we try to make "comparisons" people get a bit picky. It wouldnt be far off (for me) to compare him to Dunlap, with admitted differences. Dunlap certainly appeared more explosive, but I see other similarities in play and their situations. Dunlap and Gholston seemed to take a step back in their Jr year, both have red flags of one variety or another, but both have higher-end measurables and at least SOME production to justify looking at them in RD2 (I personally liked Dunlap in RD1 even with the flags).

Ill be curious to read how Gholston does in the interviews, how he measures out and times as I would definitely give a strong look in RD2 with either a 4 or 3 man front.

The reason I think people really don't like the Clowney comparison, even on potential, is because they were NEVER similar players. Not as collegians or as prep stars.

Gholston has the ability to be a good pro player, but there's really no comparison between him and an athlete like Clowney; his movement skills, awareness/instincts, athleticism, explosiveness and game speed are rare and Gholston just isn't on that level.

The only comparison I see is height and the position they play.

As for the Dunlap comparison, people forget that Dunlap is one of the most athletic DEs in the game and could run a 4.6 at 6'6, 275-280# at Florida.
Dunlap's tag has been underachiever, not lack of ability.

Gholston isn't a super athlete at DE, which is the comparison I see people making when they compare him to players like Clowney and Dunlap.

If Gholston improves his strength and gains about 10# I see a very good 34 DE with the ability to penetrate.

I like Gholston. He has the potential to dominate assuming he doesn't get in trouble.
