Dee Ford: I’m better than Jadeveon Clowney

Auburn’s Dee Ford made it clear on Sunday that he feels like he’s a better player than Jadeveon Clowney.

“I’m better (than Clowney). Let’s put it like this. People like to talk about size all the time. Size is pretty much overrated in my eyes,” Ford said on Sirius XM NFL Radio Sunday. “You can look at guys like Robert Mathis, Elvis Dumervil, Von Miller. These are 6-2 guys and under. People are just looking at the fact that he’s a physical specimen. Honestly if you watch the film, he plays like a blind dog in a meat market, basically.”

Ford also blasted anyone around the NFL who believes physical skills are more important than technique.

“I play with a lot of technique, I watch a lot of film, these are the things that make you a great player. These are the things I do, and it shows up, rather than — this is all my opinion — you can see these things on film. Go watch the film,” Ford said. “There are a lot of intangibles that you need to have to be a great player. You can’t just look at the fact that he’s a physical specimen. I think the NFL should have learned that by now.”
