The Houston Texans are trying to figure out what to do with their top draft choice. A lot of people seem to think the Texans will go with a quarterback, though Texans safety D.J. Swearinger thinks South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney would be a fit for the team.
Of course the two were college teammates and Swearinger playing defense would benefit from Clowney being on the Texans.
“He’s talking about, ‘Man, what’s the word?’ I’m like, ‘I don’t know. I’m going to try my best to do what I can to get you here,’ ” Swearinger said, via Brian Smith of the Houston Chronicle. “Just having them two down on the D-line, it’d be unstoppable. I’d just be yelling out, ‘Interception. Interception.’ That’s it. . . .
“It’s just another J.J. Watt, but two-tenths [of a second] faster. . . . He has a heart for the game, he loves the game and you can’t pass that up, if you ask me.”
