2014 NFL Mock Draft: Round 1
1. Houston Texans - Jadeveon Clowney DE/South Carolina
All the negative things are behind Clowney and none of the top prospects at QB blew the Texans away. So back by popular demand, Clowney, the #1 prospect in the draft, will be taken #1 overall. Paired next to J.J. Watt could create one of the scariest duo’s opposing QB’s may ever see. Unless someone gives them a RG3 type deal, don’t expect them to trade out of the top spot.
