Jadeveon Clowney: Starting To Feel It

NUMBER ONE DRAFT PICK PROVING NFL WORTH … FINALLY

Houston Texans’ number one draft pick Jadeveon Clowney hasn’t had much of a chance to showcase his skills in the National Football League …

His rookie season in 2014 was undone by injuries … and the Texans have been easing him back into action this season after he underwent a risky microfracture surgery on his right knee last December.

If Sunday night’s game in Houston against the New England Patriots was any indication, though, Clowney is going to be well worth the wait.

The 6-foot-5, 266-pound outside linebacker sacked future Hall-of-Fame quarterback Tom Brady twice – once against a double team – en route to recording his first career multi-sack performance in the NFL.  Clowney also made several plays in the New England backfield – including a pair of tackles for loss – giving fans a glimpse of the sort of disruptive ability that defined his collegiate career at the University of South Carolina.

(You remember that disruptive ability, right?)

Anyway, here’s a look at some highlights from Clowney’s big night …

Impressive …

We love seeing Clowney back at full speed … although our founding editor (a longtime Indianapolis Colts fan) probably wishes it wasn’t happening right now.  Houston travels to Indianapolis for a pivotal AFC South showdown this coming Sunday at 1:00 p.m. EST.
