The trade-up I earlier imagined by the Falcons could be in the works. Might be a deal for the Texans maybe getting a 5 and an extra second round 5 plus more if they want to draft a QB and see 3 that might fill their need. I still think the texans would do best to get JD and be just vicious up front.

Agree and see if one of their roster QBs can be their guy. I really think this is a tough decision for Houston...but JD is a lower risk than taking a QB in the 1st. There are no "can't miss" QBs in the 1st rd.

If Houston takes any Qb with their pick I think they are fools. Even if one of them work out it is a huge gamble.

I would understand them taking Mack because he is more of a 3/4 type player but JD is going to be better than really good I think. Can't wait to see him going after NFL qbs.

He will elevate his game and make his critics move on to their next target.

I just hope he doesnt go to the falcons. Because I would be rooting against him. And as I said before that team has drama and uses players instead of mentality to try to beat their biggest rival. Also they have a qb named Matt Ryan.

Why all the Clowney hate? He's a 21 year old kid and there is some serious vitriol from people.
This "Clowney Hate" thing may have began vs UNC where media hype met up with the real world and put Clowney in a situation that even his great talent could not overcome.
TV cameras were trained on him even when the play was on the far side of the field from him. Normally he never pursued plays beyond a certain distance. He played the game the way he knew how to play. Why waste energy running after a RB 25 yards away when the defense already had 5 other defenders within 5 yards of the RB?

Here is where excessive media attention FORCED him to change his style of play because if he didn't pursue distant plays at full speed he would be labeled "LAZY". If he did pursue plays not in his part of the field he would waste too much energy and get dehydrated and winded.

It's easy to say Clowney should have ignored the media's expectations a of him and stuck to his own proven way of playing as long as you're not the one being insulted on national tv. Instead of being allowed to "trail" a play at half speed as lineman are trained to do" he was forced to run full speed simply to appease the name callers. On a day when it was 100 degrees and muggy Clowney had to learn another way to play football. It reminded me of gold touraments where Tiger Woods wasn't even playing that weekend yet all you heard was announcers talking about Tiger.

so.... Don't hustle, or risk dehydration and being winded? Good luck playing a HUNH offense this year with that mentality.

Go ahead and flame me. Go ahead and distort what I meant because that is the type of person you are but after you do that you need to tell us what is the real reason behind the Clowney hate thing.

BTW I just put you on IGNORE.

How did I distort that? I used your own words. *facepalm

You're always supposed to hustle, you never know what might happen.

UNC's BS offense ran Clowney down for sure, but I saw several guys out there winded from facing that crappy hurry up crap they ran.

What really fazed Clowney in that game was the BS chop block their guard pulled on Clowney in the 4th quarter. The punk tried to blow his knee out. I know that was in his head the rest of the year...the guy had probably the biggest target on his back of any player coming into last year after decapitating V. Smith.

All this doubt and false info on Clowney is just going to fuel him to get ready for a great rookie season. I look forward to JD being the face of Gamecock football in the NFL for years to come.
