Clowney's talent has been well-documented both throughout his collegiate career and during the offseason scouting process leading up to May's draft. His tangibles are projected to be game-changing for any defense lucky enough to have him, and his motor and drive have impressed a multitude of scouts during the pre-draft process.
The Atlanta Falcons have been in the center of several trade rumors indicating that they are attempting to trade up for a talent such as Clowney or Auburn offensive tackle Greg Robinson, but nothing has been fully substantiated as of yet.
