Could Jadeveon Clowney’s blazing 40 yard dash at the combine ensure that he’ll be the No.1 pick in May’s draft.
Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report is reporting that the NFL sources believe the Texans are leaning towards and seriously close to deciding to use the top pick on Clowney.
A number of NFL team sources say the Texans are now favoring taking Clowney with the first pick in the draft.
Could it be a smokescreen?
well of course, it’s NFL Draft season.
According to Freeman, members of the Texans organization confirmed that Clowney’s forty time, and freakish athleticism might have sealed it.
However, an official inside the Texans organization told me that Clowney’s speed, despite being so physically imposing, was one of the more stunning things he’d seen in a long time. “We’ve never really seen anything like Clowney. There’s the chance he could redefine the position the way Reggie White or Bruce Smith did.”
Smokescreen? Maybe. Probably. Yet around the league, the view is that the Texans are starting to slowly fall in lust with Clowney.
