It’s already sounding like draft prospect Jadeveon Clowney is considering himself a Houston Texan. Reports and tweets are surfacing that if he and Texans J.J. Watt team up together, they will be double-trouble for Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck.
J. Clowney, on what being top pick wud mean for Andrew Luck: "He better have his head on a swivel, because I’m coming & I know JJ’s coming."

Clowney should probably back off of the trash talking a bit, because nothing is a sure thing until your name is called. There still stands the possibility that the Texans could trade their first pick in the draft, or throw a monkey wrench into things and call a different name when they officially go on the clock.
While it seems to be quite the popular opinion that the Texans will select Clowney, his exact fate will not become determined until this evening’s start of the NFL draft.
Something like this could happen. AKA the monkey wrench.
