The obvious pick here, it was either this, or trade down. Apparently they didn’t get any good offers to trade down, and selected instead to take one of the best defensive prospects to come out in a while. Having Clowney and Watt on the same line is a scary thought for opposing QB’s. This pick doesn’t need much defending, and it makes the Texans defense a force to be reckoned with next year. They still have a few offensive issues they need to address, including possibly a rb to take some pressure off the oft-injured Arian Foster, and a franchise QB.
