The NFL Draft is two weeks away and there's still no word on what the Houston Texans will do with the No. 1 overall pick.
But according to multiple reports, they're now considering trading down with the Atlanta Falcons.
Teams expect Texans to trade down, maybe to Falcons at 6. @SeniorBowlPhil says rookie pay scale makes taking Clowney, then trading tough.— Ed Werder (@Edwerderespn) April 24, 2014
There are no shortage of execs in the league who believe the Texans best odds of trading out of 1st overall is w/ Atlanta to get Clowney— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) April 24, 2014
The Falcons already hosted Jadeveon Clowney and will also meet with him and do a few drills on S. Carolina campus on Friday...— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) April 24, 2014
The Texans are in need of a quarterback, and Johnny Manziel has been one of the favorites this offseason. However, other rumors indicated that they are leaning toward Jadaveon Clowney or another defensive game-changer.
