2014 DBN Mock Draft: St. Louis Rams Select DE Jadeveon Clowney at No. 2

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

With the second pick in the 2014 Dawgs By Nature Community Mock Draft, the St. Louis Rams select...

Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina

This selection and write-up was made by Matt Wood:

A team that has one of the best Defensive End duo's in the league passes on Sammy Watkins and Greg Robinson, both positions of need, to take a Defensive End? My reasoning is simple, you don't pass on the best pass rushing talent to come out of the draft in years because of Chris Long. Can you imagine Clowney on turf with Robert Quinn (who has the fastest step in the NFL) on the other side? Yamma hamma. You could put me at safety and not worry. You can make one secondary position better by drafting a DB or you can take a pass rushing monster and make them all better.

I hated passing on Robinson, but with the Rams having two first round picks, I am hoping that with Robinson, Matthews and Lewan, someone will be available when the next pick comes around. As for the WR need, there are plenty of great WR's to be had in the 2nd and 3rd round.

Did you know that someone was drafted before Lawrence Taylor? You don't over-think this pick, you take Clowney and allow Gregg Williams to dream up ways to use the three demons to contain and destroy Wilson, Kap and Palmer. You win in this league with pass rush.

Because of how talented of a player Clowney is projected to be, it doesn't matter which team takes him: it'll be labeled as a great pick. From a positional standpoint, Sammy Watkins would seem like a good fit, but they took a wide receiver high last year, and this year's receiver class is pretty deep. I am worried about the Rams taking a quarterback to replace Sam Bradford, screwing the Browns for a second time.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are up next, led by Bumblyjack.
