It's going to be hard to pass on Clowney

    Watching this guy on YouTube and he is a rare prospect. Guys that big and strong shouldn't be able to move that quick and fast. To be able to pair him and Quinn together for 5 to 8 years would give us a dominating defense for a long time to come. I know he doesn't fit a need, but Adrian Peterson didn't fill the Vikings biggest need when they picked him either.

    If we don't trade down for at least a 2nd this year and a 1st next.... He's the pick.

    I have to agree. I LOVE Robinson but if we can't get him in a trade down then we need to take our vengeance out on opposing QB's.

    Teams need to know we will kick their @SS if they don't pay up. (We'll do that anyway, though. It's black mail ;)

    I'm sure A.P. loves playing for a team without a QB.

    Cannot see any way the Rams turn a card in and leave him in the green room - I think he goes #1 though.

    That was the Raider's line of thinking that draft.

    I think they go Bortles.

    In this draft we have 4 guys that I wi be more than happy with. That said Clowney is that rare prospect that's too hard to pass.

    I don't like CLowney at all. I don't want his attitude on my team and I consider him another Albert haynesworth. I'd take a chance on him in the 2nd round though.

    That's the short version but I've already talked at length about this subject (and pretty much all the others :ROFLMAO:) in the past 2 months.

    Any time you can get the BPA of the whole draft class you got to really think about it.

    BPA is determined by skill. I'm not worried about Clowney's skill.

    If he lives up to his potential that would be terrifying for opposing teams

    Sophie's Choice was hard.

    Passing on Clowney, not so much.

    With all the hype I don't see any way he could possibly live up to his "potential".

    For every guy that praises him theres someone bringing him down saying he will be a bust for lack of work ethic. I get what you're saying but I could easily see him being one of the better DE's in the league, and that would be living up to his potential

    I'll say it again...gonna be pretty freaking hard for me to be disappointed with the selection at No.2 overall.

    Every time I watch video or read up on Clowney, Watkins, Robinson, and Matthews I end up enamored and think "we gotta get this guy". Then I do it for one of the others...
