Sat, 21 Jun 2014 14:23:44 -0700

Texans | Jadeveon Clowney selected first overall

Thu, 08 May 2014 17:16:07 -0700

The Houston Texans selected South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney with the first overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Tip: They're not concerned with all the negatives. They'll squeeze him into this defense to try pairing him with J.J. Watt. Houston's fantasy defense is still backup material but, if all goes right, could be playable during the year. In IDPs, Clowney is a middle- to late-rounds pick with a lot of downside.
