Houston Texans' Day 2 2014 NFL Draft Primer

The Houston Texans made the smart choice and selected the best overall prospect in the draft by taking Jadeveon Clowney from South Carolina. Clowney is an explosive athlete who has the potential to be a dominant pass-rusher; something the Texans desperately needed to add.

Going into this year's draft the Texans had a need for either a starter or depth at every position except left tackle and outside wide receiver. They could have gone in about a thousand different directions, but the only one that made sense to me was to take Clowney.

If there was a great quarterback prospect available in this draft then that would have been the pick, but without one, the only logical choice was Clowney. The Houston Texans selected David Carr over Julius Peppers in 2002; nice to see history not repeat.

The job of Rick Smith to return this team to the playoffs is far from done, but this was a great first step.
