This is awesome knowing that Sammy Watkins was worth, and could have been the first pick of the first round in the NFL. And this goes back to Dabo getting CJ to come to Clemson b/c, Sammy said he came to Clemson b/c CJ played at Clemson. And now that Sammy has played at Clemson, it could help pull another great player to Clemson. Even the dumpers should feel good about the direction of our program under Dabo (The Insurance Salesman) Swinney!!! GOOOOOO TIGERSSSS!!!!
If Houston wanted Clowney that badly they had no choice but to keep the #1 pick. If they'd traded with the Browns they would have dropped to #9 and Clowney would have been long gone by then. Their only other option would have been to trade back up to #2 but it would have meant losing all the benefits of the trade they'd just made with Buffalo.
