Jadeveon Clowney is not a senior.

But the junior is one of the top draft prospects, so he decided to get a jump on meeting with NFL teams at this weekend's Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala.

"It's very valuable to put a face with a name and be out here watching the guys," Clowney told Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun. "It's something to experience."

Clowney will put his physical attributes on display at the combine in February, as the 6-6, 275-pounder said he'll participate in all of the drills in Indianapolis.

"I plan on doing everything," said Clowney, whose 40-yard dash times range between 4.4 and 4.5 seconds, Wilson reported. "It's all about competing, and I'm a competitor."

Clowney set a school record with 13 sacks and was the SEC's Defensive Player of the Year as a sophomore. But he had only three sacks this past season as he faced plenty of double and triple teams.

Still, he could be the top pick in draft.

"It's very special," Clowney said when asked about the opportunity before him. "I'm just going to take advantage of it and train and get better and just compete. I'm gifted and my work ethic is also going to set me apart."
