The Never-ending Saga of Jadeveon Clowney

Recommended Posts

Odds of there being any OTA's really make such a move meaningless in the grand scheme of things.  One would think, however, that waiting longer would limit the opportunities and money he'd get on a short term deal.

While this wouldn’t be necessarily ideal, signing him at that point would allow for his deal not to count against us in the Comp pick formula. 

If this is true I would just pass, and move on to getting a guy like Golden and signing a DL like Jernigan or Shelby Harris. 
 

A rotation of Landry, Beasley, Golden, Walker, Roberson and Gilbert is a much better group than what we had last year. 
 

we could then focus on getting a vet CB in FA and drafting a CB in round 1 like Gladney. 
 

I am really really really high on Gladney and I seriously want him to be in two tone blue. I really think he is the second best corner in the draft behind a Okudah and I think he ahead of Diggs and Henderson. His game fits perfect for the defense we run. 
 

Then again... I would be just as happy if we got Arnette in round 2 and say we went with someone like Blacklock, or Swift in round 1

 

I think a dark horse pick at 29 is a WR, and I can see this team covering a WR like Justin Jefferson who also would fit perfectly and would take over Davis spot after this year. He has great measurables and production at the collegiate level and is pro ready. He surprised a lot of people by running a 4.48 fourty

You just named 12 possible picks for our first round. After you have went through all 32 and we’ve made our first selection you’ll come back to one of those posts lol

Zack Moss or JK Dobbins would be a perfect fit in rounds 2-3

 

Both are very good in the passing game and both are outstanding runners between and outside the tackles. Moss has more wiggle and speed than Dobbins whereas Dobbins is more physical and also has very good agility and speed and can make plenty of house calls. 
 

Zack Moss reminds me a lot of Jamal Charles or Alvin Kamara whereas Dobbins reminds me of Kareem Hunt or Mark Ingram

No reason to jump that high for a 3rd down back. Plenty of depth in this draft with guys like Anthony Macfarland (visit) and Patrick Taylor Jr for example. We can find some of these quality pass catchers in the 4th-6th round.

If, IF, that is true, you move on and sign IMO Harris/Wolfe and Golden and move on with your life. You can’t run the risk of missing out on all these folks for one guy, no matter how good. 
 

Gut reaction: Clowney wants someone to up their offer and will sign before training camp somewhere. Classic negotiating tactic

Well there’s a ton possibilities at our pick. We could go in several different directions. 
 

I just named several people at each position that could be available at our pick and that fit our scheme. 
 

If I had to choose 5 players I would want at 29 it would be

 

1) Jeff Gladney - CB

2) Austin Jackson - OT

3) Josh Jones - OT

4) Justin Jefferson - WR

5) Ross Blacklock - DT

 

I think RT could be had in round 2 by going with a guy like Ezra Cleveland who I think is not very far at all behind Jones/Jackson at RT, or someone like Charles or Niang at our pick in 2 that we wouldn’t have to trade up for, and all of those guys would be immediate day 1 starters. 
 

I am more leaning toward a RT in round 2 and taking a skill player in round 1 with my focus solely on Jeff Gladney. That guy is just a force at CB and would be the perfect guy to matchup with Tyreek Hill and TY Hilton

I agree. I’m actually to that point right now. I wouldn’t be upset at all if we took ourselves out of the running for Clowney and signed Golden and added Harris, Wolfe, Jernigan

Not a bad list @kyle021

 

Mine at this stage would be: 

 

1. CB Jeff Gladney

2. OT Josh Jones

3. OLB AJ Epenesa

4. DL Ross Blacklock

5. CB Jaylon Johnson

 

Btw - I think Ezra Cleveland is being overrated by a lot of people.

I did a draft sim that allowed me to get needs AND find some CB depth special teams.

Getting Blacklock and Johnson would be wins, lol, on paper at least.

With the season on the line it would be a really stupid move if he means it. I imagine if rumblings start happening that the season is getting canceled he’ll take whatever he can get.

100% agree with this, also think Cleveland doesn't have the run blocking power that JRob likes in his OL.

Really it is.  His leverage will decrease after the draft.  Teams will have drafted their guys and Ngakoue will be traded and or other interested teams will simply sign the remaining edge guys (like Griffin or Golden).  I like Clowney but he isn't great enough as he thinks he is.  There are no OTA's this year which probably decreases the chance of injuries too.  So the odds of some team getting an injury in OTA and scrambling to sign him are lower.
