Good read. Clowney is a hell of an athlete but there certainly is room for improvement. This article definitely helps sort out his strengths and weaknesses. Scary to think how much he can improve!

I didn't love the idea this guy is pushing that Clowney came here for 3 years and received essentially zero coaching. But if he does have that many technique issues, watch out if someone gets them solved. The Texans D would be unbelievable with him opposite of Watt.

I think losing Lawing hurt Clowney this year. Clowney seemed to inprove on his technique between his freshman and sophomore year but slipped back into bad habits this past year. Either way I would love to see the Texans draft him so he could play next to Watts.

I don't think losing Lawing hurt. Clowney at times played not to get hurt. Offenses mad it easier by running away from him. As for coaching, both Lawing and Deke said Clowney basically did what he wanted to. I don't think it was a lack of coaching but a lack of listening.

Not saying I agree with the fact that losing Lawing hurt Clowney, but I think the biggest factor in the improvement from Quarles was how much attention Clowney garnered

Doesn't hurt that Russell Wilson is a two time Pro Bowler and had 26 Tds, 9 Ints and a 101 QB rating this year.

One question for all the critics did none of them see the year that kelcy Quarles had? His results prove that defenses doubled and ran away from clowney. The defensive strategy of lawing and deke don't allow for direct stat comparisons either. Clowney is just two good of a player to pass on Imo

Clowney is the smart pick. None of the QBs are a Luck type talent, sure thing. Get Clowney and have a sick D, like the Seahawks, and find a QB to manage the game. It's much easier to get a solid QB than it is to get a Clowney and Watt combo.
