BWTB: Texans veteran high on Jadeveon Clowney

Posted Mar 19, 2014

Safety Danieal Manning spoke Tuesday about Jadeveon Clowney and his impressive skills.

A pair of Texans safeties are fans of Jadeveon Clowney.

The South Carolina defensive end, and possible first pick in May's NFL Draft, is a friend and former teammate of second-year Texan D.J. Swearinger. The Houston defender said back in February that he hoped the former Gamecock would be selected by the Texans.

But Danieal Manning is a fan of Clowney's, too. During a Tuesday interview with Texans Radio, when asked about the Draft, Manning diplomatically said he'd like to see Matt Schaub return at quarterback. If that were to happen, the nine-year veteran would want Houston to nab Clowney.

"I would love to see somebody like him," Manning said. "I don't think there's a lot of players in the draft like him."

At times, Clowney's work ethic has come into question by some. For Manning, that's not a problem.

"I think if you get around the right guys and coaches, you can see what's really going on with him if that's the case," Manning said. "I don't believe that's the case. I think the guy's a phenomenal player."

Manning, however, made it clear that he's only offering up his opinion.

"I'm not the GM, but if we go that direction I think we'll be fine," Manning said.

The veteran safety also gave an update on his return from a leg injury, and said he's "way ahead of schedule".
