Clowney Countdown: Are Falcons just dreaming?

Jadeveon Clowney at South Carolina's pro day.

The latest intel on the Atlanta Falcons trading up for the No. 1 overall pick, held by the Houston Texans, in order to draft South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney?

Probably not going to happen.

At least that’s what draft-watchers at nfl.com were saying on Monday

Yes, the Falcons’ meeting with Clowney last week was sincere. But talks between the Falcons and Texans have not started, according to the site. The Falcons are saying they could move up anywhere into the top-four spots or could drop back to earn more picks in a deep draft.

Say tuned. There are 10 more days until the draft.
