    With the second pick, St. Louis would love to pick up Clowney to match opposite Robert Quinn. To pull this off, they'd have to unload Long and his contact to make this feasible.

    Would you be willing...and if so, what would you give up?

    2 Longs and 2 Bennetts, We would be a family org. Not sure they would release Long. Clowney would be in a rotation with Quinn and Long. Clowney being a draft pick is no more expensive than any other pick at #2 and will not require them releasing Long to get him. They would have a nice DE rotation for sure

    With Long they don't draft Clowney. They have other needs. They wouldn't release Long, it would cost us. Think of this as a Marshall Faulk scenario. Good player, but on the downslope of his career...get something while you can at the same time upgrading the position for the Rams.
