Jadeveon Clowney is staying in Cleveland for another season.
The former No. 1 overall pick signed a one-year deal reportedly worth $11 million. It will be the first time that Clowney has played two consecutive seasons with the same team since leaving the Houston Texans. Clowney never became the force of nature that he was back in college, but the three-time Pro Bowler had nine sacks for the Browns in 2021, falling one half-sack short of his career-high. With the NFL’s decision on Deshaun Watson looming, along with Baker Mayfield stuck in QB purgatory, there are still many questions that the Browns coaching staff will need to answer on offense, but with Clowney back for at least one more season, the plan of attack is a bit more clear on the defensive side of the ball.
Which brings us to today’s quiz of the day. As noted above, Clowney was the first selection in the 2014 NFL Draft and, by default, was the first defensive player taken as well. So with that in mind, how many of the first defensive players selected in every NFL Draft since 1993 can you name in five minutes?
