    Both of the top two teams in the draft would love to have Clowney. I can't imagine him falling past #2 overall unless some disaster occurs between now and draft day.

    I am still trying to figure out what he has done since the helmet-remover two bowl games ago

    This is coming from a kid who was a coin flip away from calling himself Romo 2 Hurd.

    I kid. I kid.

    If we did do this it would be highly idiotic.

    So yeah. There's a chance.

    Considering this report listed under Jan. 3rd
    http://www.gbnreport.com/


    • No surgery for Clowney; hopes to take combine by storm … South Carolina junior DE Jadeveon Clowney, one of the top 2-3 prospects for this year’s draft, likely won’t be in Mobile this year - at least not in a football uniform - buys he plans to do a full workout at the combine in late February. Of course, more than one top prospect has changed their mind once they get closer to Indy in the part. Stay tuned. Meanwhile, Clowney also told local reporters after the team’s Cap One Bowl win over Wisconsin that he is no longer planning on having surgery on his foot to repair bone spurs which hampered him all season.


    I dont believe we will move up high in the first round to select a player that needs surgery on a problem that was hampering his production.

    It is possible that he falls a few slots...If he has surgery after the draft it would wipe out training camp for him.
    So he would be out of shape and unsure of assignments when he finally would see the field....Considering the reports about his disinterested effort , you have to wonder just how out of shape he would get.

    If he played with it for the season (which is longer than the college season), would he have a lackluster season like the past 3 1/2 sack effort he had this last year with the added wear and tear from a longer season...

    Just say no to a trade up....

    The only player I see us trading up for is Mosely if he starts to slide.

    This reminds me of the threads saying we would trade up to draft Darren McFadden.

    Dalla should stay pat this year or trade down for the extra picks... There will be some starters in the 2nd round

    Definition of "Calling it now": Look at Me.
    Yes, I'm not seeing a big difference between most players projected to be available in the mid first to those projected to be 2nd rounders.

    Exactly, Dallas could have drafted Freddick in the 2nd and pick up the better TE in the first. This team need to do a better job projecting players.

    2009 NFL Draft:

    Seattle 2nd round (#49 overall) Max Unger

    Dallas 2nd round (#51 overall) Traded down because their top target Max Unger was already taken.

    No, not "look at me". Just a gut feeling that this draft will shake out and have Clowney fall a few spots, similar to Claiborne who many were projecting at #3/#4 at this point (Blackmon, Kalil, Richardson ended up going ahead of him)

    Are they better because they had better stats? Maybe those stats had more to do with who is starting in front of them. Ertz had better numbers than Celek, the starter in Philly. Neither, Celek or Gresham(Bengals) had stats close to Jason Witten.

    no trade ups, if anything, if there isn't someone that they love at 16/17, then trade down if they have a partner and pick up another pick or two

    Clowney's character issues will cause him to fall. That's my guess. You don't use a #1 overall pick on a guy with character issues. Plus Houston will go QB with it's first round pick.
