NFL Draft Walk-Up Music Suggestions: Jadeveon Clowney
Tonight, Jadeveon Clowney will likely become the number one draft pick in this year's NFL Draft. The menacing South Carolina defensive lineman stands at 6'6" 250 pounds and resides in the nightmares of opposing offensive players. He is responsible for some of the most destructive hits in college football during his time in the game. One NFL team (most likely the Houston Texans at number one) will get very lucky tonight.
This year at the draft, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is encouraging draftees to choose a song to play as they walk across the stage. Similar to the way baseball players have walk-up music. Since Clowney is a terrifying figure and is set to dominate the NFL, we thought we'd help him choose his song with a few suggestions. Pay attention early on tonight to see what he ultimately walks out to.
Pearl Jam "Animal"
"1, 2, 3, 4, 5 against one" will certainly be the motto of any offensive line trying to stop Clowney from obliterating their quarterback.
Umphrey's McGee "Prowler"
The Umphrey's McGee instrumental should be used based on song title alone. Clowney's 13 sacks in 2012 were the 3rd best in the country and his 24 tackles for loss put him 2nd in that category that year. One would say he's on the prowl for the opposing team. I'll show myself out.
Rage Against the Machine "Killing in the Name"
While the menacing defensive end was never accused of burning crosses or holding office, the line "fuck you, I won't do what you tell me" seems to apply. Clowney is consistently the ire of the national media, particularly during his last year in school where the Gamecock star certainly didn't exert himself to the fullest of his potential. As the colossal paycheck approached, Clowney's draft stock fell. And now that he's on the verge of being the top pick, he will remind everyone not to tell him what to do.
Also, if you watch this GIF while listening to "Killing in the Name," the world all of a sudden makes sense.
One more time, from a different angGOD MAN GET OUT OF THE WAY
TV On the Radio "DLZ"
More than just the song's direct lyrical references to a "Death Professor," the usage of it in a Breaking Bad episode drives it towards Clowney even more. In season two, Walter White was out of the cooking game when he happened upon a rival meth cooker stocking up on supplies. Then, we saw White morph back into Heisenberg. This time, it would be for good. He uttered the now famous line "stay out of my territory" and went about his business of rekindling his relationship
Much like Heisenberg, you should really stay out of Clowney's territory. And don't let him catch you slipping--ever.
Ozzy Osbourne "Crazy Train"
DID YOU SEE THOSE GIFS?!?! All aboard the Clowney Train.
