    I'm hoping for a trade out of the spot personally.

    Teddy Texan or Clowney. Depends on who the next HC is. I'd love to see Clowney and Watt on the same 4-3 DL. Would be pretty damn happy w Teddy Texan. RT would be the worst possibility IMO.

    Teddy B. We need a franchise quarterback.

    I'm fine with Clowney, Bridgewater or trade down. I'm also looking forward to who's stock rises in the offseason evaluations. Will Bortles show enough to warrant being the top pick? What about Manzel? Don't be surprised if it happens. Mathews? I expect him to fall between 8 and 15. but we will see. Anyway at least we can finally put this season behind us. Here's to a new and brighter future. :toast2:

    Teddy. A good QB makes a world of difference. I don't think Clowney would be a game changer. He'd be a luxury.

    I'd be concerned with Clowney's work ethic, he has Haynesworth type of bust potential due to lack of interest after a payday, but you got to gamble to win. I'd ***** a little but about it but be happy for either of these picks.

    Either way it's going to be exciting! A feeling we haven't had around here in a while. :doot:

    McNair won't pick Clowney. Thank god for that.

    Would like to see the pick traded to get a lot of picks. Bridgewater us not a can't miss prospect to me.

    I want the best QB in the draft. Right now that's Bridgewater.

    Bull****. If the new coach says I want Clowney, we will draft Clowney.

    I cant see a team owned by Bob McNair drafting Clowney.

    Please no. We don't deserve that.
