Having the first pick of the NFL Draft definitely has its perks. Starting with the fact that the Houston Texans have the first look at every prospect in this years draft and have liberties to pick whoever they feel is the best. That very well could be South Carolina’s Jadeveon Clowney. The 6’6, 246 pound All-American defensive end is entering the NFL Draft looked at as one of the top defensive players in the country.

Owner Bob McNair thinks Clowney is something special as well. In an interview posted on the Texans official website, McNair was asked about Clowney:

“He’s one of these players who’s a once-in-every-10 years kind of physical specimen that comes along.”

McNair also compared him to former first round pick, Mario Williams, who the Texans drafted first overall ahead of Reggie Bush in 2006.

“Mario Williams was that way. I think Clowney is actually a better athlete than Mario.”

Some high praise for the future rookie, Clowney. However, the Texans could do a number of different things in the draft that does not include drafting the  snout defensive end. The Texans have said that they would consider trading the number one pick for a good offer. Houston could also look into drafting a quarterback after a disappointing showing by all three quarterbacks last season.
