    2014 Draft: Bring on the Clowney

    The above is the title they used for this but I thought the one I used is better to describe what the article was...

    It has a list of the top DEs and DTs and a brief write up for each.

    2/17. *Kony Ealy, Missouri, 6-4, 273, 4.92, 1
    Former high-school standout as tight end, defensive end and a Missouri all-state basketball player who entered college at only 207 pounds. That athleticism is conspicuous in his burst off the line, quick spin moves and closing speed on whomever has the ball. He must continue to improve strength to disengage big NFL blockers, evidenced by his so-so 22 reps with 225 pounds on the bench at the combine. Some teams believe he shows instincts and range to be an OLB in the right 3-4 scheme and he showed good lateral agility in games and at the combine, where his 3-cone drill was fastest among defensive linemen (7.11 seconds).

    Frankly: Showed versatility as defensive end and inside pass rusher and stock soared this spring as some teams bought into his potential use at linebacker. Ealy is very good, but must continue to improve overall, especially in strength, to live up to lofty expectations against a steady diet of athletic NFL blockers.

    For the rest... http://sports.yahoo.com/news/2014-draft-bring-clowney-163719394--nfl.html

    Seems like some RKGs right here. One at DE…

    and another at DT..

    I'm warming up to a trade down if Donald or Barr don't make it to 16. Maybe to Green Bay for 1/21, 3/85, and a mid-round pick in 2015.

    Good read, JJ Watt and Clowney would be entertaining for any fan to watch and I expect it to happen unless they get an offer they cant refuse
