2. Cleveland Browns DE Jadeveon Clowney
When the pads came on for the first practice of training camp Aug. 3, Jadeveon Clowney was the big start.
Against right tackle Jack Conklin, Clowney notched two sacks (plays are blown dead before contact is made with the quarterback).
Seeing Clowney perform so well, against someone such as Conklin, who is one of the best right tackles in the league, has fans salivating to see what the former No.1 overall pick can do playing opposite of Myles Garrett once the games start to count.
Perhaps too much is being made over one practice. Of course. Clowney probably isn’t going to lead the league in sacks, but his play does serve as a reminder of how he enjoyed his best season playing opposite of J.J. Watt in Houston.
Perhaps the the more freedom he enjoys with so much attention being paid to Garrett will set him up for the big campaign we’re all hoping for.
