2014 NFL Draft: Kiper And McShay's Joint Three-Round Mock Draft has Houston Texans Grabbing Jadeveon Clowney

1.1? - Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Mel Kiper and Todd McShay have released their biggest mock yet. See who the Texans have taken in this three-round monster.

With less than a week until the 2014NFL Draft (finally!), ESPN’s Mel Kiper and Todd McShay have released a whopping three round "dueling" draft. McShay takes the odds and Kiper takes the evens, which is a similar set up to some past mocks from our sister site Mocking the Draft. Let’s see how it all turned out, shall we?

McShay: Pick #1 – Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina

No surprise here. Clowney is the No. 1 prospect on my board, a once-in-a-decade type of natural talent, and the right choice at the top of the draft. We'll try to get our quarterback at No. 33.

McShay: Pick #33 – Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville

After taking both Bridgewater and Clowney for the Texans, we can probably take the rest of the draft off. That's a great haul right there -- the No. 1 overall prospect and No. 3 quarterback on my board.

McShay: Pick #65 – Antonio Richardson, OT, Tennessee

There's definitely a drop-off in talent in this class around the late-second, early-third range, and I'm starting to feel the effects of that here. However, Richardson is a solid value here, and Houston can afford to get better at right tackle.

While I would be wary of taking Richardson simply because of his lingering knee issues, grabbing a talented right tackle in the third round to push Derek Newton off the roster is not a bad way to use the 65th overall pick. The fact that this mock has the Texans nabbing both Clowney and Teddy Bridgewater means that Rick Smith could very easily screw up every single other pick in the draft and still come out a big winner.

What do you think, BRB? Would settling the Clowney-Bridgewater debate by taking both of them enough to satisfy you?
