Jadeveon Clowney has insisted that he works "just as hard as anybody" ahead of next month's NFL Draft.
The former South Carolina Gamecocks defensive end is projected to be one of the top picks in the Draft, but some pundits have questioned his work ethic.
The 21-year-old told The AP: "I think I work just as hard as anybody. If you pick me and pair me with guys, I'm going to try and outwork them also."
Clowney made 85 tackles and 24 sacks during his three seasons in college.
