Clowney has an impressive resume.
He played college football at North Dakota State.
The Falcons drafted Clownee with the fourth overall pick.
The Jaguars selected Clemson’s Deshaun Watson in the fourth round, but the NFL Network’s Todd McShay has the Jaguars going in the opposite direction.
They took Watson with the fifth overall pick, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 draft.
McShay notes that Clemson’s defense is a “big, physical group,” which means that the Jaguars have to be patient with Watson.
