this makes zero sense, the 49ers will not get Clowney nor should they go all in for a guy that rushes the passer. Bottom line, the team has one of the top 3 pass rushers in the NFL in Aldon Smith and with Justin Smith, Ahmad Brooks and our DL we do not need to go hard after any other pass rushers. Especially since Lemonier and Tank could be very good in the future.
Teams like the 49ers stay good by continuing to draft well and building on depth and the future quality of the roster. Giving up an entire draft (and probably more) would be a franchise killer even if he ended up fulfilling all the hype surrounding him. Another thing to consider is the cap, once JC reached his 2nd contract the team would have to pay a very large portion of their cap space to him and Aldon, then you take into account how much Willis and Bowman cost and that would be a very expensive LB group.
