The Clowney controversy continues - USA Today
All draft picks produce a question or two, but with Clowney they seem endless. Will his pro day raise more questions? Or lay some to rest? See, I told you the questions were endless!

Let's not entirely forget about free agency, next year will be hectic - Sports Illustrated
A number of HUGE free agent signings/retentions will be at stake next year.
If you thought the start of NFL free agency was insane this year, just imagine the 2015 window opening with Richard Sherman, Jimmy Graham, Colin Kaepernick, Ndamukong Suh, Dez Bryant and other current or future All-Pros wandering onto the market.
...for far more than the obvious. He is rightly considered the best OG in the draft, but will he be there when the Rams get on the clock? Rather obviously, he will be with the number two pick and almost certainly the thirteenth...but then what?
The SEC continues to dominate both the BCS and NFL draft boards.
Like St. Louis, Cleveland is poised to score big in the coming draft, but confusion seems to be the order of the day. An effective smokescreen or reality?
