Russell Wilson played well. Marshawn Lynch was effective. Percy Harvin delivered the knockout blow. But the reason the Seattle Seahawks won the Super Bowl was its pass rush. They sacked Peyton Manning only once but they were in his face all day. They disrupted the rhythm of a record-setting offense and the Denver Broncos could only manage eight points.
If quarterback is the most important building block, then finding someone who can disrupt the quarterback is 1A. There is no better pass-rusher in the draft than Clowney.
There may not have been a better pass rusher in any of the past 10-15 drafts, either.
Clowney is 6-foot-5, 266 pounds and he ran an official 4.53 second 40-yard dash at the NFL combine. More impressive was the fact that he covered the first 10 yards in 1.56 seconds. That's a faster burst than running backs Montee Ball and Zac Stacy had in 2013.
It's another example of Clowney's explosiveness and athleticism, which is off the charts for someone of his size. He's got long arms (83-inch wingspan) and his vertical jump of 37 ? inches was a half-inch higher than Mike Evans and more than 3 inches higher than Sammy Watkins. So you can make the argument that he's the best pure at. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys
