CORTLAND, NY (AP) - Rex Ryan has a prediction: If the New York Jets can draft South Carolina star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, he won't be the coach. 

Ryan, considered by many to be in a make-or-break season, delivered a gem when asked Saturday how much of his daily discussions with general manager John Idzik involve looking beyond this season.

"It's safe to say I won't be here if we draft Clowney," a grinning Ryan said. "I can just say that right now. I think I'm going to say that without hesitation."

Clowney is the front-runner to be the No. 1 overall selection in next year's draft. Holding that top pick would likely mean the Jets had a terrible season.

"Shoot, that draft is miles away," a laughing Idzik said. "That's pretty funny, though."
