Report: Houston Texans not looking to trade down anymore

Well, so much for a big trade at the top of the draft. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the Houston Texans are no longer looking to trade down from the top spot in the 2014 NFL Draft and are “locked in on their player” at No. 1 overall.

Jadeveon ClowneySchefter says most people around the league believe the pick will be South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and from what I’ve heard that’s a safe bet. The Texans didn’t ever seem sold on any of the top quarterbacks and Clowney is the kind of physical monster you just can’t pass up if you have the chance to take him. Houston likes Buffalo linebacker Khalil Mack, but they simply can’t take him while Clowney is still on the board.

Of course, this could be a last-ditch effort to drum up interest in the top pick, but the Texans were originally asking for three first-round picks and a second-rounder in a trade. They apparently lowered that to asking for first, second and third-round picks this year and a first-rounder in 2015, but that’s still a ton for a team to give up.

With just hours to go before the start of the draft, it’s probably a good idea for the Texans to stop working the phones and settle on their guy. If calls come in at the last minute they can decide what to do then, but for now, it appears Clowney will go to the Houston Texans at No. 1 barring any big last minute changes.

Frankly, the idea of Clowney and J.J. Watt wreaking havoc on opposing offenses is a scary thought and the Texans probably can’t go wrong putting that combination together.
