Yet he's the third most valuable player in his draft behind Newton and Kaepernick. That is why you do not draft defense at #1 overall when there's potential great QB's in the draft.
The problem I have with that logic is that you had a few teams do that with Ponder, Locker, Gabbert, possibly because they thought they had a potential great QB only to strike out and miss out on players like Watt, Robert Quinn, Cameron Jordan, Pouncey, Kerrigan (All Pro Bowlers) and Wilkerson.
I could see a scenario where the Texans take Clowney, and a NT, or guard, and still grab a QB like Tajh Boyd in the 3rd. This would allow them to sign a free agent QB like McCown or whomever and let Tajh learn for a year.
