Steve Spurrier Thinks The Texans Have To Draft Clowney


South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier believes the Houston Texans only have one option with the first overall pick in the NFL draft: Select his former player, Jadeveon Clowney.

Spurrier told Dan Patrick that the Texans have to take Clowney at No. 1.  

“Yeah, I think you have to,” Spurrier said when asked by Dan Patrick if the Texans should take Clowney.

Spurrier went on to say that if there was a franchise quarterback like Andrew Luck in this draft, it might be a whole different story.

“He’s a really good football player, and obviously pass rushing is what he does best,” Spurrier said. “He’s a pass rusher like nobody I think I’ve ever seen in college football.”
