Texans owner: Jadeveon Clowney 'obviously the best player in the draft'

Houston Texans owner Bob McNair told reporters that they didn’t know what they wanted to do with their first overall pick in the NFL Draft. McNair also said the Texans would still considering trading down if the option pops up.

“Really at this point we don’t know and we really won’t know until right up at the time we have to make a decision because people are talking to us about the possibility of trading down and it’s a question of what people offer, whether their offer is such that it’s worthwhile to trade down,” McNair told Fox 26 in Houston on Friday.

“You take a guy like Jadeveon Clowney,” McNair added. “He’s obviously the best player in the draft, but he’s a defensive end. He’s not a quarterback. If he’s a quarterback and the best player it’s easy, but that’s not the case. So can that defensive player have a greater impact on the success of your team than one of these quarterbacks? It’s not a sure thing that he is.”
