Clowney: "I'm not going to let anybody down"

Posted May 8, 2014

With about three minutes left on the clock, the Houston Texans called Jadeveon Clowney and told him he was the one, at one.

With about three minutes left on the clock, the Houston Texans called Jadeveon Clowney and told him he was the one, at one.

Tears streamed down his face, and when he embraced his mother, a powerful moment ensued.

“I told her I loved her so much, and she was like, ‘I love you too,’” Clowney said. “And I said ‘Mom, you don’t have to work anymore.’”

While Josenna Clowney’s working days at the Frito-Lay plant might be numbered, her son’s are beginning anew in Houston.

“I’m just ready to get down there and help the organization out and get to work,” Clowney said. “I know myself, and I’m not going to let anybody down. I’m going to show the world what I got.”

Once Clowney gets down to business, he described what defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel has prioritized for the number one pick.

“Pass rush,” Clowney said. “He’s gonna start me off slow. Pass rush, that’s my strong point. Then he’s going to show me and get me involved in dropping, schemes and all, which I know I can do.”

General manager Rick Smith was intrigued by what Clowney will add to the defense.

“When you talk about a creative mind like Romeo and some of the things he’s done, when you look at his defenses historically and how he utilizes personnel, it really gives us an opportunity to get after the quarterback,” Smith said.

The former Gamecock repeated multiple times how excited he is to pair up with 2012 NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt. The sooner Watt and Clowney get after opposing quarterbacks, the better the Texans secondary will perform.

“It’ll probably take a lot of pressure off them also,” Clowney said. “The quarterback will hopefully have to get rid of the ball quicker. Just have those guys make a lot of interceptions, hopefully, and put the offense in good situations to score touchdowns.”
