    I am mot a Jags fan but if they pick him, I will be watching. Love to watch the kid play. I do think he's going to have a tough time surviving in the league, but I hope he can make it happen.

    As far as I know, there isn't anything he did in college that would look all that bad at the next level. He's cocky and maybe that's a problem, but I don't think he did anything terrible.

    reminds me of a qb out of jawja that everybody said the same thing about named Frances back in the 60's

    that said, I think the Texans are in a no win situation-if I were GM I would take Clowney

    Actually, a former teammate of Kyle's (a D-lineman) was drafter last year by the Texans... They were so deep at DL & DE that they waved him. He was picked up by the Bucks, only to be waved again, and then picked up by the Patriots, where he started many games and was named Patriots Rookie of the Year! Congrats Chris Jones!
    My point is, I doubt that the Texans take a DL/DE with their first pick... not one of their biggest needs.

    Nothing against the kid but I would trade down and get as many draft picks as humanly possible.

    I think they could trade down and still get him.

    I for one can't wait to see him play in the NFL. One of the most entertaining players in the last 15 years or so. I think he will do just fine and will be pulling for him.

    I'm pretty sure watts would make him fall in line.

    If I was Jonny, I'd be trying to make a package deal with the big receiver that seemed to catch everything thrown in his direction when JM was running for his life.

    It'd be funny if they took Clowney and said they needed him to knock that chip off Johnny's shoulder twice a year.

    This is the same guy that wrote that scathing assessment of Cam Newton when he came out. You know, the one where he said Cam had a fake smile and was disingenuous etc. Cam may indeed have some questionable character flaws, but he can flat out ball. This guy has a problem with the people that don't fit his "mold". I don't put much stock in his reviews.[/quote]
