NFL Draft Rumors: Jadeveon Clowney, Khalil Mack, Sammy Watkins, Greg Robinson & Jake Matthews are the consensus top 5


Although there is a lot of debate surround the quarterbacks, Johnny Manziel from the Texas A&M Aggies, Blake Bortles from the Central Florida Knights and Teddy Bridgewater from the Louisville Cardinals, they are an afterthought to some.

Yes, whether or not Manziel’s game translates to the NFL, if Bortles is a franchise quarterback and why Bridgewater’s stock has taken such a hit are important questions, but according to Jason Cole, none of the quarterbacks are among the consensus top five prospects in the draft.

That distinction belongs to former South Carolina Gamecocks’ defensive Jadeveon Clowney, former Buffalo Bulls’ linebacker Khalil Mack, former Clemson Tigers’ wide receiver Sammy Watkins, former Auburn Tigers’ offensive tackle Greg Robinson and former Texas A&M Aggies’ offensive tackle Jake Matthews.


Clowney is the most popular choice to go #1 overall while many peg Robinson to go second and Watkins third.
