Get Clowney at all cost.

And no, he did not get handled by Lewan. Michigan did a good job keeping the plays away from JD all game long. They ran the opposite way (especially on rollouts), chipped him, double and a couple times triple teamed him, and Lewan held his facemask all game long. And to call this play a missed assignment is not completely correct. If you watch, the guard was pulling to pick him up. Usually the guards have enough time to get to the DE, but Clowney is so freakishly quick that he was already downfield by the time the guard got to the spot. This kind of play happens all the time but very rarely (never) do you see the DE beat the ball to the RB.

Lewan is a prospect I've had some interest in him, but haven't watched much of because i figured we'd end up in the 7-10 range. Now that we're out of that, I'm going to take a closer look when I get the time.

You'd think with the way our season went, that people would be calling on us to draft the next Troy Polamalu, not the next Julius Peppers.
I believe that was a talent reference, not a motor one.

I remember a run play they ran to Clowney's side. He comes out of his stance, reads that it's a run and engages Lewan. At first it looked like he'd be a non-factor in the play until he just tossed the dude aside and made the play. It was incredible.
I don't care what our needs are next season, or whenever he enters the draft- do want.
