“A guy like Jadeveon Clowney is obviously going to be an instant impact player whether it’s us picking him or somebody else,” Cushing said. “I think he’s going to be a great football player in the NFL. He’s going to do a great job. Like I said, whether it’s with us or someone else, he could definitely improve our defense or somebody else’s. We’ll see what happens.”
“I watch every draft,” Cushing said. “It’s what I do; I’m a football player so I watch every guy coming in and who’s going to help our football team and how we’re going to improve overall.”
The NFL Draft is scheduled to begin on Thursday, May 8 with the first-round selections and end on Saturday, May 10.
