Default Re: The case for Clowney at #1

My take;

Everyone says the Texans need a QB.

Is there a #1 Overall QB in this draft? I don't think so and I don't think the Texans do either.

If Luck were in this draft, it would be different but I don't think there is a QB even close to Luck in this draft.

Just my opinion but I think they take JD in the 1st and then look for their QB in the 2nd. I don't think they can pass on JD

Yet Quarles improved tremendously. Weird.

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

I'm just perplexed that former NFL DE Stephen White didn't make the case for Houston to take Dee Ford with the first pick...how odd.

Default Re: The case for Clowney at #1

If I was Houston I would draft Clowney #1 and trade my 2nd or 3rd pick for Ryan Mallet.

Boom problem solved. You get a better QB IMO and you get the best player in this draft.

If Clowney doesn't go first, I hope he goes to a decent team like Atlanta.

Unfortunately Clowney's lack of amazement at the combine probably cemented the argument against taking him #1.

What's his reason for not doing some of the other drills? He did what, the bench, 40, broad and vertical and what else? Didn't do cones and position drills and reported yet another issue? Hip flexor now? Hopefully he did enough but with JD seems there are always questions after the fact.

An even better question is how could they not be? The guy outdid most of the offensive players in the 40. Honestly that's pretty impressive for a guy his size. I just don't see the point in downplaying him and elevating someone like Manziel who, let's face it, has just as good of, if not a larger, chance of being the true bust of the 2014 draft.

He only skipped 1 drill, where you start on the ground. He did the shuttles and 3 cone drills. I know, because I watched him do them.

Oh yes, and here's a photo.



Please get your facts straight before you post, or you'll end up looking pretty dumb.

From ESPN article: After taking part in the 40, broad jump and vertical jump -- things used to measure explosiveness and straight-line speed -- Clowney took a pass on cone and position-specific drills because of what he told those monitoring the workouts was a hip-flexor issue.

Since he did, great. What about the position drills or did ESPN blow the entire report? I was going off of their reports and didn't watch any of the combine.

Clowney did the 40, Bench, broad, Vert and 3 cone drill according to NFL.com.
He did not partake in position drills (drills that don't have timings) or the 20 and 60 yd shuttle.

Or looking like someone just making stuff up for some unknown reason.

BTW, I think Houston takes him...and I think it's a great move for them.
