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.”
