ESPN.com quoted Jadeveon Clowney today saying
I wish they would trade up for me
This could be good news and bad news for some, as Falcons fans have been somewhat divided when it comes to the idea of drafting Clowney. “but I hope I don’t fall to No. 6. I like Atlanta a lot. They’re pretty good. They’ve got some guys from South Carolina on the team, also. And it’s close to home”
Sure having some guys you use to play with is a plus and being closer to home is great, Jadeveon’s motives seem more closely related to winning. It seems accurate to say that the Atlanta Falcons are the most likely team with a top 10 pick to face a bounce back year. The other two being the Houston Texans and the Detroit Lions.
So he wants to win and believes Atlanta can do it, then hop on board and help this sinking ship turn into a champion. Yes this is just a player voicing his opinion and he did make comments about still wanting to be the first overall choice to Houston but I am not taking this lightly. Yes I am a believer in Jadeveon Clowney’s ability and him wanting to be a Falcon just makes me want him on this team even more. I am team Clowney all the way, what do you guys think? vote now
