TexansTalk Top 10: 2014 Draft
I figure people can post their top 10 draft prospects and we can get a consensus, as well as see people rise and drop over the course of the process.
My top 10 right now:
1. Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M
2. Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA
3. Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
4. Louis Nix, NT, Notre Dame
5. Jadeveon Clowney, DE/OLB, South Carolina
6. Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon
7. Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan
8. Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
9. Timmy Jernigan, DT, Florida State
10. Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M
It may come as a surprise that I have Barr rated more highly than Clowney, but I really have been turned off by the way Clowney has approached this season. He came in out of shape, which was clear in the 1st game of the season. He gets frustrated with the way teams double him, or run away from him. He's verbally complained about it, and he takes plays off because of it. This is the same kind of thing that happened to Mario Williams when he was at NC State. He got doubled constantly and people almost always ran away from him. Mario didn't ever complain about it and continued to play hard. There was a knock on him about taking plays off in college, but what I saw when he was at NC State was a guy playing hard all the time. Clowney has come off as a guy that isn't committed to playing hard.
I also have two WRs in the top 10, which I didn't expect when I started making my top 10, but that's how it worked out.
Post your current top 10.
