Who Should the Houston Texans Take With the First Pick?

The answer is Jadeveon Clowney. The Texans were 28th in sacks last year. 24th in points allowed. 23rd in rushing yards against. They have a brand new head coach in Bill O’Brien and they had almost as much quarterback controversy last year as the woeful New York Jets (god I love writing that). The current situation is not one where a young QB will thrive. Andre Johnson is 32 years old and Arian Foster is coming off of back surgery. The situation on offense is not ideal and a young, inexperienced QB isn’t going to change that. Manziel isn’t RGIII. He’s not an Olympic level hurdler, he was a play maker. If you’re looking for more of a pocket player Andrew Luck is still raw after 2 seasons in the NFL and hasn’t made it out of the divisional round of the playoffs. For every Peyton Manning or John Elway you draft at number one, there’s a Jamarcus Russell or a Tim Couch.

Jadeveon Clowney is the Texans best chance of drafting a playmaker who will have an immediate impact on the team. Either draft him or trade that number one and stock picks to build your team. You can teach a lot of the technique that Clowney is missing but you can’t teach someone how to be a fucking monster that runs a 4.5 40 and is 6’6″ 250lbs. I also think J.J. Watt would be a great mentor for Clowney and someone to compete with. Plus I want to see the kind of havoc that duo could wreak.
