I could see Houston taking him. Lets not forget Matt Schaub (SP) was a pro bowl quarterback last year. He did have an AWFUL year, but maybe he can bounce back. They could hope and if not they have one of the best prospects to come out of college in atleast a decade.

I don't care what Kiper says. Clowney is getting drafted by the Texans, it is already written in stone to me. If he is not, then I was wrong. I haven't been this sure of something in a while.

Honestly, the test I hope Clowney does well on is.....

The Wonderlic test.

Just to shut the tigers up about his intelligence. If his agent is smart, and I think he is, he'll have do an equal amount of studying and practicing for that one as well as the physical stuff.

If I remember right, somebody posted some sample questions from the Wonderlic back when CJ Spiller bombed it. It didn't seem that hard.

The questions themselves are not that hard, but the time clock makes it difficult.

Yeah I guess that would make a difference, especially if no calculators are allowed.

Default Re: Clowney vows to put up "amazing" numbers at the NFL Combine

The draft isn't as need-driven as some of you think. Many teams draft the best player available, and with someone like Clowney who is arguably a generational talent, you're going to see GMs far more willing to take him even if he isn't a "need." The risk of passing on him is far greater than the risk of drafting him.

That being said, I don't know anything about how the Texans' front office operates. I could definitely see him going first overall, but they do need a QB so who knows. The combine should clear some things up.

It isn't totally based on needs, but it also isn't totally based on "best player avaliable". Teams with crucial needs will draft there needs unless there is a player that is just too good to pass up. The Texans know how good of a position they're in. They need a QB, but there simply isn't a guaranteed lock (in the eyes of analyst right now) as a "franchise QB". So they could go either way with their draft pick - a QB who has the potential to be great, or a DE who is a physically dominating specimen.

The problem here is that the Texans don't neccarily need Clowney, but they do need a QB. It will be interesting to see what option they choose, and that is one that we will not know for a while. The combine will unfold a lot of these questionable teams that could pick up Clowney in the draft, because a lot of the top 10 picks need a QB. The ones that don't (Rams) need recievers and offensive linemen. It's impossible to "guarantee" that a player gets drafted at X position in the draft because of these options that teams could take.

Do I think Clowney is obviously a talent that isn't seen that often? Yes, but there is also questions about his work ethic and injury history. Shit, look at these boards for that alone! People freak the **** out during game weeks about if "the real Clowney" will show up! You think the NFL GM's didn't notice that on their own?

If Clowney does really well at the combine, meaning doesn't come in over weight, runs well in the 40, does well with the lift, and doesn't fail his interviews or wonderlic score (which is overrated, sure) then he will definitely increase his chances of getting drafted by the Texans. But if Manziel, Bridgewater, or any other QB amazes Bill O'Brien (a offensive minded coach), Rick Smith (Texans GM), and Bob McNair then there is no way to "guarantee" anything.

I'm hoping that he does get drafted first overall just for the significance of it, but it's not that important otherwise when you're talking about a talent that is almost guaranteed to go in the first round.

Why would anyone take one of these top 5 QB first in the draft.....there are no Andrew Luck's there....and if you miss, you're in big trouble. Taking a DE is far less risky especially one that would have been drafted out of HS if the rules had allowed it.

I dont think he has the work ethic to be great but he will definitely be an above average DE at the next level.

Because, no offense, unless you're the GM of the Texans, Raiders, Browns, Jaguars, etc. then your opinion of the QB is worthless. Same as mine, or any other poster on this board. They are the people in positions to declare if a QB is draft-worthy or not.

After the combine is finished, if one, or multiple, of the draftable QB's perform really well - that will be a decision they have to make. It looks like a risk right now, and I agree, but these teams are looking out for their futures too. The NFL is a passing league, teams live and die by the play of their QB. The Texans gave up on Matt Schaub and are left without a clear picture at that position. Like it's been said, unless Bill O'Brien, Rick Smith, and Bob McNair can lock up a QB via a trade, or free agency, then you can definitely look for them to seek for one during the draft. Will they use that pick in the first round? Maybe not, maybe so.

I think the free agent market opens on March 11th. The draft isn't until May 8th. That leaves plenty of time for not only Clowney to impress, but these QB's you (or I) don't believe in to be "franchise" type athletes to impress as well. There's a lot of times between now and then, and plenty of oppertunity to increase, and decrease draft stock. By May 8th, Clowney could be the clear-cut #1 overall pick - but so could Manziel, Bridgewater, or any other QB that is on the market. Only time will tell.
