Absolutely. Decision to play a base 4-3 should have been made the moment they decided to take Clowney #1 overall. You don’t invest the top pick in the draft in a player and then ask them to mainly do things they didn’t do in college that earned them the top pick.Might’ve been fun watching a Texans defensive front 4 featuring, Watt, Wilfork, Reader, and Clowney…..they were all there at one point. Not to mention, the Texans wouldn’t have had to convert Clowney from a DE to 3-4 OLB. That would’ve been a tough as nails front line. In all honesty…..Clowney is probably clicking double digit sack totals right along with Watt.
Of course then we can also go into the twilight zone scenario where we decide to trade down, gain more picks, and take a stud like Aaron Donald or Khalil Mack instead
