Jadeveon Clowney: I Wish The Falcons Could Trade Up For Me


I see what you’re trying to do Jadeveon.

Jadeveon Clowney would love to be the No. 1 pick in May’s NFL Draft, but he’d love even more for the Atlanta Falcons to trade up to select him with that pick as well.

Clowney voiced that sentiment to the media during his Saturday presser at the combine.

“I wish they could trade up for me,” Clowney told ESPN.com. “But I hope I don’t fall to No. 6. I like Atlanta — a lot. They’re pretty good. They’ve got some guys from South Carolina on the team, also. And it’s close to home.”

The Falcons have expressed interest in the past in trading up, and they desperately could use improvement on their defensive line.
