Each could easily take the best player available and wind up with a productive pass rusher in Clowney for the next several seasons. Or they could pass on him and go a different direction.
"Zero," Charles Davis said on NFL Network's "Path to the Draft" on Monday. "I'm not even going to hesitate on that -- zero. Gus Bradley, the defensive-minded head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars who came from Seattle and watched them win the Super Bowl this year? No way he lets Jadeveon Clowney slide past him at three. He'll be very creative in how he uses him, too."
While saying the Jaguars wouldn't pass on a player like Clowney isn't exactly going out on a limb, we've seen plenty of other teams do strange things on draft night. In fact, Jeremiah made the point it would be strange to even see Jacksonville in position to add a player of that caliber this year.
"Jadeveon Clowney, in my opinion, shouldn't go past the first overall pick," he said. "If for some reason he got out of the top three picks, I think teams will regret it. The Jaguars have added some pieces ... but none of them are close to the talent that Jadeveon Clowney brings. If you're in a division with Andrew Luck, you need to get after the quarterback."
Enter Clowney -- if he gets to them.
"If he gets all the way down to three with Jacksonville, that means Houston is probably taking a quarterback at No. 1, likely Blake Bortles," Davis said. "At two and St. Louis, we don't know what they're going to do, because they have a chance to trade out of that pick. It's unlikely, but they'd be smart to consider him."
