2014 NFL Draft: Rick Smith Press Conference On Jadeveon Clowney Selection

New, comments

Rick Smith has taken some time to talk about his potentially landmark selection of Jadeveon Clowney with the first overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft. See what he had to say below.

Deepi Sidhu of Texans radio was kind enough to live tweet Rick Smith's press conference after the selection of Jadeveon Clowney as well as dropping a little nugget about Clowney and Watt's future relationship.

Everything that Rick Smith said, we've heard before. The team made it known throughout the pre-draft process that they had no concerns with Clowney's work ethic, and they were more than happy to prove their faith by taking the former Gamecock first overall. What really sticks out to me in this string of tweets is J.J. Watt's promise to mentor Clowney like "a big brother".

There is not a limit to the amount I would pay to be J.J. Watt's little brother. Consider yourself the luckiest man on earth, Mr. Clowney.
