Jadeveon Clowney to enter 2014 NFL Draft

In the second shocker of the day (not really) South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney will leave school early to enter the NFL Draft.

This is no surprise.  Here is my question to you- At what point would you trade up to get him if you were drafting for the Titans?  There is no way he gets past the Atlanta Falcons at #6.  Is it worth moving from 11 to 5 to get him?

Of course it depends on how much it costs, but I say it is absolutely worth a second round pick this year and a first round pick next year you move up and get him.  Clowney can make an average defense, which the Titans have, great in no time.  That is exactly what Jevon Kearse did for the Titans back in 1999.

The only concern with Clowney is his work ethic.  He mailed it in this season.  Will he be hungry once he gets to the NFL?  That is something teams will have to try and figure out in the pre-draft meetings with him.
