It's just seven days away from the 2014 NFL Draft getting started and Houston Texans general manager Rick Smith addressed the media and he did indeed confirm that the team is open to trading their top overall pick.
A trade has been rumoured for some time, but to hear it actually being considered from a higher up makes the draft even more exciting, with all eyes definitely being dead set for May 8th.
But which teams are interested in trading up for that number one overall pick? Well, according to NFL network man Albert Breer, there are three potential candidates in the form of the Atlanta Falcons, Jacksonville Jaguars and the Buffalo Bills.
"Three clubs that I think would have enough interest in Clowney to try and trade up: Falcons, Jaguars and Bills. Won't be cheap, though," Breer tweeted out earlier today.
All three of those teams have expressed interest in the former South Carolina Gamecocks star, most notably the Falcons who just had an extended meeting with Clowney which included putting him through a “force plate” to gauge his long-term durability.
Still, each of these franchises could use the help on the defensive side of the ball, and Clowney could fit their needs perfectly.
Radio City Music Hall in New York will be the centre of the known universe for that one night next week.
