It's rare when a defensive player makes a Heisman Trophy watch list, but then again, Clowney isn't your average player. With his size -- 6-foot-6 and 272-pounds -- speed and strength, Clowney has had NFL scouts drooling since the moment he crashed into Michigan running back Vincent Smith during last season's Outback Bowl. He finished last season with 54 tackles, including 10.5 tackles for loss, while leading the Gamecocks with 13 sacks.
