Good article. Worth the read. Discusses why, if Clowney is getting all these "QB Pressures" and has a high pass rush win rate, why doesn't he get more sacks? Clowney is way below "league average" in the percent of his "QB Pressures" that turn into sacks. What gives?
The article shares data and videos showing Clowney is not an "Edge Rusher", has no bend, and when he "wins" on pass rush, it is usually on a move to the inside, where he runs into another OL who provides help. Clowney rushes "into" double-teams, he is not "double-teamed" so much by the opponent strategy.
The other interesting thing in the story is that for all Clowney's explosiveness, he was well below average on the bench press, 30th percentile, suggesting that he does not have the upper body strength to disengage from offensive linemen using his hands and arms. Also, Clowney was "below average" in the 3-cone and 20 yard shuttle tests, 41st and 43rd percentile, respectively. So he has explosiveness and straight-line speed, but no bend, and below average lateral agility.
Glad that Pete and John passed on paying Clowney and tying up so much capital. Alton Robinson was a better finisher on that clutch sack he had on Dak Prescott, and let's see how Darrell Taylor looks when we get him back.
