Texans defensive line coach Anthony Weaver knows his way around an NFL locker room and when he said that current Houston Texans defensive end Jadeveon Clowney has potential to be a hall of famer, people listened. He was pretty vocal about Clowney's chances to reach the highest level in football, and numbers are not disproving him one bit so far.
Clowney, the first overall pick in 2014 is just beginning to scratch the surface of what he can do in the NFL. A freak athlete out of South Carolina, he missed a lot of time as a rookie, only playing in 4 games in 2014. He played 13 and 14 games in the next 2 years and is healthy going into 2017. Pairing with perennial All-Pro and future hall of famer JJ Watt on the Texans defensive line, the duo look to harass opposing quarterbacks all season long. Overall, Houston's defense finished in the top 10 in DVOA and could be even better this season as Clowney grows more accustomed to the NFL.
