49ers, Raiders at Clowney pro day: Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie took in South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney’s pro day firsthand. Many view Clowney as the most talented player in the draft. The Raiders own the No. 5 overall pick in the draft, which starts May 8. The 49ers also had a representative at Clowney’s workout, though they would likely have to trade way up from their No. 30 spot to draft him.
