BUT, how about this instead: trade back from #17 & acquire an extra R2 for next year. tread down again, acquiring another R2 pick. Then, next year, trade those two "extra" R2 picks to move up for Clowney.
Two extra second round picks wouldn't be enough for moving up for Clowney even if the Steelers do tank the season.
But I can see that the Steelers pick Clowney, if Big Ben gets hurt all season.
A side note, Taylor Lewan actually held his own well against Clowney in that game. The Steelers won't pick him but I wonder if teams in front of them will. That may help the Steelers' chance of getting Te'o.
