The over-analysis of players is about to begin. The college football season is winding down and the over analysis of every college football prospect is starting. One of the possible top selections in the draft, Jadeveon Clowney will be evaluated by every NFL scout.

On MMQB, one AFC general manager said that teams will want to see if  Clowney has the motivation to play this game:

“Does [Clowney] have all the talent in the world? Yeah,” one AFC GM said. “For people to get secure with him, it’s going to come in the interviews, the one-on-ones with teams… they’re going to see what’s in his soul. They’re going to see what makes him tick.”

With the Houston Texans and Washington Redskins at the top of the draft, would they pass on that talent? Could you imagine J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney on defense? That would be insane! The Redskins already have a couple of quarterbacks on the roster and they need all kinds of help on their defense. Clowney would be a nice fit on that team.

Of course they want to see the kid’s motivation, but after looking at the film for the kid, any ounce of motivation would be enough.

    You seem to have forgotten that pick is no longer Washingtons, St. Louis is the wild card here, will they keep that pick trade down again, there’s no doubt the Rams have made some brilliant moves on draft day and I think this team is going to be scary good in the not so distant future.
