Top prospect Jadeveon Clowney stoked speculation he would be the first overall pick earlier this month by cancelling some upcoming pre-draft workouts with various teams, according to reports.

The thinking at the time was Clowney could have already been promised he would be selected first overall by the Houston Texans, therefore negating any need to meet with any other teams.

The plot took another twist this week.

According to a report from ESPN, Clowney has met with the Atlanta Falcons. It's unclear if he has or will participate in any drills, or if the two sides are just meeting.

The thinking here isn't that Clowney may now fall out of the first overall pick, but rather the Falcons could be interested in trading up to the first pick to get Clowney.

Earlier reports suggested the Falcons could be looking to trade up and that they are interested in Clowney. It could all just be pre-draft smokescreens, or Roger Goodell could first head to the podium May 8th not to announce the first overall pick, but rather to announce a trade.
