Editor's Note: Each week, John Harris will point out, through video, great matchups involving NFL Draft-eligible prospects in the college football games to watch on Thursday, Friday and/or Saturday.
This week, the college season opens with North Carolina at South Carolina, so I figured why not use that game to highlight the matchup between UNC LT James Hurst and that Clowney character. (Yeah, he's pretty good.)
I know many don't like watching the play at the line of scrimmage, but this should be a decent matchup to watch. If nothing else, you'll focus in on the greatness of Clowney for a full 60 minutes.
But, for Hurst, this could go a long way in proving to scouts what kind of tackle he can be at the next level. Not many have much success with Clowney, which means that Hurst can gather a significant amount of attention by slowing him down. Watch as I break it down.
