    That may not be realistic, especially with the Rams sitting at #2 and likely looking to trade down like they did with Washington.

    In all fairness, Al Davis is dead, far less likely. Over the last few seasons, they haven't really made any major moves, just trying to recover from the last few.

    The "luxury" (if you can call it that) of being really bad and drafting really high is that with so many holes on your team it is pretty easy to trade down, acquire picks, still secure top flight talent AND fill a need.

    If Clowney is there at 6...which would be a small miracle...no chance Atlanta trades out of that spot.

    As it is, it wouldn't surprise me if Atlanta trades up to Jacksonville's spot to get him if he's there and Jax is willing to part with him.

    I see Mack falling a few spots.

    Most likely Barr falls the most though.

    Didn't we already consult the chart and see this would cost us nearly every draft pick we have?

    Did Mike Ditka become coach at some point? Jerry Jones has never made a move like this. He has traded picks for current players but never mortgaged for draft picks.

    Jerry has done dumber things than going up for clowney ... like

    Cowboys trade first-, third-, sixth-round picks to Detroit for Roy Williams, seventh-round pick.

    Or giving Seattle 2 1st to get Joey Galloway ...

    Going up to 6 to get Mo Claiborne after you payed 50 million to Brandon Carr and had Mike Jenkins on your roster.

    There are 3 right there that are worse ...

    The Sideline View's Lance Zierlein says an AFC offensive line coach told him South Carolina edge player Jadeveon Clowney will struggle his rookie year.
    "Spoke with AFC oline coach who is studying SEC OTs & he thinks Clowney will struggle his rookie year as OTs will play him for inside move," Zierlein tweeted. Zierlein added that the same oline coach "was less than impressed with Clowney’s edge rush skills & thinks he is too dependent on inside moves." Clowney still has room to grow with his technique as a edge rusher, but still remains a rare prospect on the field. Clowney's freakish speed and power off the edge will create problems for opposing offensive tackles. Moving forward, the key thing for Clowney is just putting it all together. Mar 13 - 1:06 PM

    Would you trade next year's 1st or this year's 2nd+?

    St. Louis is in a very good position. They will have a very busy phone for that pick with other teams wanting to steal Clowney (if he gets past Houston), or one of the QBs. It will be a fun draft. I just wish it wasn't so late this year.
