Arguably the hottest name of the top group of prospects is that of South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.
Dimitroff spoke to AtlantaFalcons.com about Clowney and fellow defensive prospect Anthony Barr during our Google Hangout with Dimitroff from the Senior Bowl. During media time on Radio Row on Thursday at the Super Bowl, Dimitroff spoke again about the Gamecocks game-changer.
Speaking to the AJC’s D. Orlando Ledbetter and Jeff Schultz, Dimitroff called Clowney as much:
“I’ll just say what everybody in the country knows: Jadeveon Clowney is a top notch talent and he’s going to make a team happy and he’s going to be a legitimate difference-maker in this game. The people with the top two picks know that.”
The top two picks are held by the Houston Texans and the St. Louis Rams. The Falcons will select at No. 6 overall.
