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

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.
