Texans Make Clowney #1 Overall Pick

After being linked to trade rumors for weeks, the Houston Texans stood pat on Thursday and make South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney the top pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Clowney made a name for himself in 2012 racking up 13 sacks and 54 tackles, including a crushing hit on Michigan running back Vincent Smith in the Outback Bowl. In 2013, during his junior, and final, season with the Gamecocks, Clowney's sack total dipped to three overall along with 40 total tackles.
