McNair raves about Jadeveon Clowney

Quote:
"He is a remarkable player," McNair said, via the team's website. "He's one of these players that's really a once-in-every-10-years kind of physical specimen that comes along."

Now, that doesn't mean the Texans will draft Clowney; and McNair is a graduate of South Carolina.
...
"He's not a J.J. Watt," McNair said. "You know, J.J. didn't have that natural ability. He worked. He developed his. And one of the things I said to J.J. I said, 'J.J., I don't know what will happen, but if we get Clowney, we want you to instill in him the same kind of work habits that you have.' He said, 'If he's in the same room with me, then he'll have them.'"

Default McNair talks Clowney

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...eveon-clowney/

"“He’s one of these players who’s a once-in-every-10 years kind of physical specimen that comes along,” McNair said, via Tania Ganguli of ESPN.com. “Mario Williams was that way. I think Clowney is actually a better athlete than Mario."

Mmm, Texans taking Clowney or, more likely, trying to strum up interest for another team to trade up ahead of the Rams and take him?

i want someone to go back through the reports and see how many players each year are "once in a decade/generation/lifetime" players. it's to the point that i have actually become annoyed by the statement.

Default Re: McNair talks Clowney

Anyone who believes this is a bafoon. They're putting this out there because they are fishing Clowney to see if anyone wants to trade the farm. My guess is they really like Teddy (maybe JFF, but I doubt Rick gambles his job on him). This looks like they are open to getting multiple picks which could very well let them trade back up and get their QB with something on the side.

Yeah, let's show our hand and have JJ Watt baby sit our 1st pick. Yeah fkn right..

Bob McNair is a South Carolina grad. It makes sense that he is a fan of the guy and has followed him in school.

If we take Clowney, we are clowny. There are much more pressing needs than DE. Although OL may come before QB, the latter is the one harder to fix later in the draft. Take a QB first!

I'd be OK with this. Clowney is a big risk but then I think Bridgewater is one as well (and I understand that not everyone shares that belief) so looking at what's available at the top I'm told RT's aren't an option at 1-1, Bridgewater is not much more "special" than a guy I can get at 2-1 or worst case scenario trading back up into the bottom of the first round.

In that case I go Clowney 1-1, Mettenberger 2-1 (hopefully) and consider myself fortunate.

I agree, I think he was asked a question about a specific player and told the good he saw in that player. He didn't come out of the blue with that on his own. I imagine he will pump up any player he is asked about. I doubt they are putting a lot of thought into the draft at this point in the front office. Scouts are still finalizing their thoughts and reports, the combine hasn't happened. No final decisions on our own pending fa's much less anyone else's.

Bob is just being a gentleman answering questions at this point

Still early but source beleves if its up to Bill O'Brien expect Blake Bortles/UCF at 1st pick or Zach Mettenberger/LSU at the top of rnd 2
I could see Bortles the first QB taken after a trade down, but not first overall. Clowney->Mett is something I've been mocking to us for awhile now.

Those three will be gone within the first 5 picks.

But if you think someone like Met, McCarron, or Boyd can be a franchise QB, then yeah. Trade down.
If we trade down further than 1-6, then I want 2015 first round picks.
