2014 NFL Draft: Jason Whitlock Compares Jadeveon Clowney To Randy Moss

Comparable to Jadeveon Clowney? - Jim McIsaac

ESPN's Jason Whitlock took to Twitter during the 2014 NFL Combine and made a comparison I haven't seen anywhere else. What do Texans fans think about Whitlock's analysis of Jadeveon Clowney?

Currently a columnist at ESPN, Jason Whitlock has never shied away from sharing his opinions. Often, these opinions rankle his readers. I imagine the following opinion, shared by Whitlock on Twitter, will elicit a reaction from football fans, including but not limited to those who support the holders of the first overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

If nothing else, I appreciate the comparison of Clowney to Moss purely for the reason that it's not one I've seen before. Jadeveon Clowney is often compared to Mario Williams, Julius Peppers, and even Lawrence Taylor (though the latter comparison, at least in this piece, is more akin to "Jadeveon Clowney is no Lawrence Taylor"). Randy Moss? Haven't seen that yet. It's original.

How about the idea that a talent such as Moss or Clowney can thrive at wide receiver but not on the defensive line? Or is that little more than sophistry?

Does it even matter? As a Texans fan, would you be excited about Houston spending the first overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft on a defensive player as talented as Randy Moss was on offense, regardless of questions about Clowney's effort?

Answer those questions and discuss as you see fit below.
