Who believes Clowney is a once in a generation talent?

Personally, I've been drooling about having this guy on the Raiders since he was in High School, I remember watching footage of him after ESPN made him the #1 player in the country, I thought he was the most dominant high school football player I'd ever seen, just a man playing with kids. I thought he could've gone pro out of high school, I felt he was that good and that physically ready. His first two seasons at South Carolina showed just how much of a monster he is, he dominated SEC linemen. People knock him because of last year, me personally, I don't think it had anything to do with work ethic, I think he was playing cautious to protect himself. And why shouldn't he, we all know he would've been the #1 pick in the draft last year, he should've been allowed to enter the league as a sophomore but that's a debate for a different thread. I believe Clowney is the kind of defensive player that can impact a game like Lawrence Taylor. I believe what he could bring to our football team would elevate our defense to one of the top 10 in the league this year. I would not be disappointed at all if we traded up to #1 to take him, in fact, I'd call it the greatest trade ever made. Would you be upset if the Raiders traded up to the #1 spot and drafted Clowney?
