A year ago, the sports network presented Clowney an ESPY Award for 'The Hit' he delivered on Michigan's Vincent Smith in the 2013 Outback Bowl. The video of Vincent's helmet flying in the air as he is met in the backfield by Clowney was seen more than a million times on television and Youtube.
Now the former South Carolina defensive end is featured in a promo for ESPN's coverage of next month's NFL draft.
In the 27-second spot, a shirtless Clowney pummels three tackling dummies on a dark football field in the pouring rain. Clowney doesn't say a word. He doesn't need to.
The draft begins May 8 with ESPN covering it live beginning at 8 p.m.
