First it was Jevon Kearse, then Peppers, then Mario Williams and now Clowney - the zomgzzzz athleticzzzzz defensive ends. How many teams did these guys lead to super bowl victories? I am pretty sure Houston is well aware of the Williams pick and how it did not turn out as anticipated.

The fact that Houston has a pretty solid front seven already also makes me wonder why they would draft Clowney. They have the best DE in the game, their biggest hole in the front seven is at the nose tackle spot. They have Mercilus and Reed as their two OLB. It was not the front seven of that defense that was the primary issue. It was their horrid secondary and the decline of Schaub.
I'm not sure the Williams pick is a good example. Do you think they'd rather have drafted Vince Young, Matt Leinart, or Jay Cutler? I'm pretty sure they'd take Williams again in a re-draft. The same could be said for Julius Peppers. Do you think Carolina would've taken Joey Harrington or David Carr in a re-draft? If anything the Texans should use that draft as an example of how taking a QB over a rare prospect didn't work out.

If they think one of the QBs is a franchise guy then they take him. If not, you just take Clowney.
