NFL Draft Rumors: Jadeveon Clowney to visit Atlanta Falcons next week


Despite reports surfacing that South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney wouldn’t be talking anymore private visits before the draft, it appears at least one more team is going to get a face-to-face with the best player in the draft. According to ESPN’s Vaughn McClure, the Atlanta Falcons are set to meet with Clowney next week.

Per ESPN.com:

South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, considered the top prospect in this year’s NFL draft, is scheduled to visit the Atlanta Falcons next week, according to a league source.

It’s unclear that the extent of the visit will be, as Clowney may or may not workout for the Falcons during his visit. It was rumored that one more team was going to get time with Clowney before he shut down all private vista ahead of the draft and at the moment that team appears to be the Atlanta Falcons.

He’s unlikely to be on the board at No. 6 overall, but there have been rumblings that the Falcons would trade up to get him an d a visit certainly doesn’t calm that discussion.
