Clowney is the best player in the draft, and there really isn’t too much debate about that. Whether he is motivated or not is a different story, but he’s the best football player available in this year’s draft. The Raiders don’t have enough talent on their roster, at least not as much as most other teams. They do need a quarterback, but they can’t pass up the chance to draft a once-in-a-lifetime player like Clowney.
