Draft Scout *Jadeveon Clowney News
03/02/17 - DE Jadeveon Clowney is on the mend after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. Clowney is coming off a career breakthrough season during which he recorded six sacks and 55 tackles. "The reports I get from our medical staff is that he's doing very well," coach Bill O'Brien said. "He's training. I think he's back and forth between South Carolina and Houston. He's getting ready to go."
01/26/17 - DE Jadeveon Clowney had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Thursday. Clowney is expected to be fine, but the surgery is notable since the top overall pick of the 2014 draft had microfracture on his right knee during his rookie season. Clowney stepped up in the absence of injured J.J. Watt and recorded 52 tackles and a career-high six sacks in 14 games en route to being named to the Pro Bowl this season.
01/17/17 - DE Jadeveon Clowney emerged as a Pro Bowl selection in the absence of injured DE J.J. Watt. He became comfortable enough to do everything from exhort teammates on the sidelines to playful banter with reporters to rapping in the locker room and dancing on the practice field.
A former top overall pick from South Carolina, Clowney had an altogether different persona this season as he overcame a past riddled with injuries to record a career-high six sacks and 16 tackles for losses this season. His play was even more disruptive and forceful than his statistics showed.
Clowney was voted first-team All-NFL by the Pro Football Writers of America.
"His personality came through with the success he was having on the field," Texans coach Bill O'Brien said. "His health, you know he was banged-up, but I mean overall pretty healthy. So he was out there and he was such an active player that that's what happens. When you have success on the field, you're able to instill more of your personality in the locker room.
"I think you guys got a chance to see that this year. The guy's a great guy. Loves football, loves his teammates, loves playing, plays hard."
01/08/17 - DE Jadeveon Clowney joined J.J. Watt as the only Texans' defensive linemen with an interception in the postseason.
01/08/17 - DE Jadeveon Clowney was again a disruptive force, with his juggling interception of a pass by rookie QB Connor Cook midway through the first quarter giving Houston possession at the Oakland 4-yard line. On the next snap, Lamar Miller beat the defense to the far pylon for a touchdown and 10-0 lead. "Great play by him," Cook said of Clowney. "Me trying to make a play in a hard situation like that, I have to be safer and not throw it away. He's a great athlete."
