But, what if the value you assign to him wasn't there?Unlike some I was always very skeptical that Clowneys market value was that of two first round picks but felt he should fetch a single first round pick, especailly from a team like Seattle which likeley will be drafting in the latter stages of the rounds.
So if thinkin Clowney was only worth a single frist round pick makes me a hater, then so be it.
That's what grates on us, not getting anything thing close to value for JDC. If the team insists on disposing of him, it's almost like
O'Brien wants to sabotage the Texans value/talent level.
They chose to take a 3rd rd pick for Clowney, which turned into Conley and they needed that pick to solidify a depleted secondary, rather than wait for a 3rd rd comp pick. This turned out to be a wise move. IMHO
I guess this really comes down to if you think Mercilus/Conley> Clowney and even if you dont agree with this I still think they made the best out of a bad situation.
