2014's No. 1 draft pick is living up to his billing. 

We saw him explode into the backfield for a loss in his first preseason game, and he looked even more impressive on consecutive plays in his second game. 


Update: Sunday, Aug. 17, at 8:32 p.m.

In an interview with 610 Sports Radio in Houston (via Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk), Smith said he wasn't impressed by Clowney:

“I don’t see anything special. He’s just a guy. He’s a guy who plays defensive end. He plays pretty good. Made a good play.”

---End of update---


Clowney came off the edge and stuffed Atlanta Falcons running back Antone Smith for a loss, then he came in hot pursuit of Matt Ryan for the sack on the next play. The sack was his first as a member of the Houston Texans.
