The Houston Texans have been projected to draft Jadeveon Clowney since the former South Carolina Gamecock backed up his stellar combine performance with an equally strong pro day or one of the top quarterbacks with the first overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft, but now we can add another name into the mix.
According to Jason La Canfora, former Auburn Tigers left tackle Greg Robinson will visit the team this week as they consider all their options.
I don’t usually mention draft visits much, but Texans, undecided on their 1st pick, host Auburn T Greg Robinson on Wed/Thurs

Robinson has been mocked to the St. Louis Rams with the second overall pick in a plethora of mock drafts and is a virtual lock to be a top-five pick as the top left tackle in the draft.
The Texans don’t have a pressing need at left tackle with Duane Brown entrenched there, but Robinson could slide inside to either guard position or play right tackle in the interim if they view him as the best option with the top pick or if the Texans trade back a few spots and take Robinson later.
The redshirt sophomore tackle has been compared to NFL Hall of Famer Larry Allen because of his agility, strength and power as both a run blocker and pass blocker.
