Clowney is not eligible for the draft until next year. I’m sure the Kansas City Chiefs would be all for the league bending the rules this year as Clowney would be the sure No. 1 pick in the draft.
It’s another reminder that this is such a bad year for the Chiefs to have the No.1 pick in the draft.
Kansas City will get a good player with the top pick, just not one who has instant stardom stamped on him. For those questioning that Clowney isn’t a great position fit for the Chiefs because they have outstanding pass-rushers, it doesn’t matter. You take a player like Clowney regardless of need and gleefully watch him take over the league.
The Chiefs will only have that luxury if they have the top pick again next year.
