I definitely think Werner/Watt is a very valid comparison. Both guys "get up" at the line of scrimmage. They get up the field, and they get off the ground. They defend the pass in multiple ways (pressure, collapse, eyes, swats, etc).

He dropped weight to be a more pure pass rusher this year, he can put that weight back on and play more of an anchor like Watt.
I'd find a way to do whatever it took next year to get Clowney.
Cut Ben Roethlisberger, Harrison, Polamolu, Ike, Keisel, Clark and let Hampton, Lewis, Mendenhall, Foote all walk as free agents

Clowney will be the #1 pick next year, and NO team will trade out of the #1 spot, passing on him is not an option.
So, having the worst record in football is the only way we get him
ban this idiot.
i dont think there were many that viewed long as a one scheme type of guy, i remember there were talks of him replacing aaron smith (before he shot up the boards to a sure top 3 guy) but he had great use of hands and could stack and shed with the best of them while getting pressure, essentially what JJ watt is now, but hes built more like long imo...watt is a good 40 pounds heavier
