#2 St Louis Rams: Jadeveon Clowney, DE S. Carolina 

Rory’s Take: The Rams have two exceptional pass rushers right now, but they may have to lose one in order to keep the other. If they instead are able to find cap space somewhere else to keep both, why not add more pass rush to dominate in the difficult NFC West?

Chase’s Take: Clowney recently said that he wants to be the number one pick while at the Senior Bowl where he was interviewing with teams despite not participating in the practices/game at Mobile. I don’t see him falling too far as it is looking more and more like NFL scouts are evaluating Clowney ahead of the quarterbacks as we expected way back at the start of the college season. Like I said, I see Clowney going first and if not he won’t be waiting to hear his name called for long.
