Jadeveon Clowney’s performance during South Carolina’s Pro Day on Thursday was heralded a success even before it was over. NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah called it "a phenomenal day."

Bill O'Brien, who met with Clowney Tuesday night, said he wanted versatile players who could play a number of positions during Monday's Town Hall meeting. While the Texans remain tight-lipped about the No. 1 overall pick, O'Brien thought Clowney "performed well in all of the drills."

"He's a guy, in our opinion, that can play a lot of different spots, which is why it was good to be here today to see him move around in the different drills," head coach Bill O'Brien said in an interview with ESPN following the Pro Day workouts.

The Houston Texans front office was well-represented at Williams-Brice Stadium by O'Brien, chief operating officer Cal McNair, general manager Rick Smith, and defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel. Texans position coaches were not in attendance, but Crennel led several drills towards the end of the workout.

"We are a 3-4 base defense, but we are a very multiple defense," O'Brien said. "We play a three-down front, play an even front and also play a front which we call a floater package where we move guys around quite a bit."

As for work ethic and intangibles, O'Brien also added that motor was not a concern for him following questions last season about Clowney's declining sack numbers.

At 6-5 ½, 266-pounds, Clowney ran the gamut of drills testing speed, agility, explosiveness and his ability to play either a 3-4 outside linebacker or a 4-3 defensive end for NFL teams. The former South Carolina defensive end decided not to run the 40-yard dash, after doing so with an official 4.53 time at the Combine in Indianapolis.

“I don’t know if the day could have gone much better for Clowney,” NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah said. “Overall a phenomenal day.”
