Jadeveon Clowney had best hope his draft stock isn't affected by his driving record.

The State reported that Clowney received a speeding ticket Thursday morning after being allegedly clocked at 84 miles-per-hour in a 55 mph-zone. Per information provided to The State by the Columbia police department, Clowney was pulled over near the intersection of Interstates 26 and 126, and issued a ticket for $445.

An officer told the paper Clowney "was courteous and didn't complain."

The ticket is the second for Clowney in a matter of weeks, with the future top draft pick clocked at 110 in a 70-miles-per-hour zone December 7. That ticket cost Clowney $355.

South Carolina state law allows licenses to be suspended after an accumulation of 12 points. Guilty pleas to charges of driving more than 25 miles over the posted limit -- as in both of Clowney's tickets -- are worth six points each.

And as always with all things South Carolina , we'll leave the last word to Steve Spurrier, via The State's Josh Kendall:
