Texans reveal multi position plan for Jadeveon Clowney

Published Add your comment

Jadeveon Clowney is amongst a host of players who are battling it out to be the first overall pick in the NFL Draft this May.

With the Houston Texans in control of that no.1 pick all eyes are on who Bill O'Brien and co will choose at Radio City.

And today, the new head coach gave a revealing insight into just what he has planned should Clowney be the one the Texans go for:

"If we decide to draft this guy, we're not just going to play him at one position," he told reporters.

"We may start him at one position but use him in a lot of different ways. He's unique talent but again, that's if we draft him."

Clowney is an incredible talent who has flat out dominated games at times on the South Carolina defense. And he certainly has the physical capabilities to play a number of roles for whichever team he finds himself on in 2014.

O'Brien didn't go into exact details about where he sees Clowney playing but Romeo Crennel, the Texans defensive coordinator, would likely feel comfortable playing him at either end position in his 3-4 front.

Although a switch to quarterback might be a stretch too far even for Jadeveon Clowney.
