The Houston Texans own the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL draft, and they need to make sure that they do what's right for their franchise with that pick. However, they need to be ready to face the consequences of passing on some of the draft's top prospects.
Earlier this year, former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel said that it would be "the worst decision" the Texans would ever make if they passed on him. Now, former South Carolina defensive standout Jadeveon Clowney is echoing the same sentiments.
At Clowney's pro day on Wednesday, he was asked about the possibility of Houston passing on him. If the Jacksonville Jaguars drafted the defensive star at No. 3, he would get to face the Texans twice a year in the AFC South. Clowney believes he'd be able to make Houston pay for its decision if he ended up in Jacksonville:
Asked how miserable he'd make #Texans if they passed on him & the Jags drafted him, Clowney says, smiling, "I have to make them miserable."— Tania Ganguli (@taniaganguli) April 2, 2014
That's the kind of attitude you want from a young player.
