RTC: On Clowney, and the Texans' asking price

Reading the coverage of the Houston Texans...

We begin with a video posted to Twitter in which FOXSports.com's Jay Glazer reports that the Texans' asked one top-10 team for three first-round picks and a second-round pick in exchange for the first overall pick.

It's important to note here, as Glazer later did himself on Twitter, that we don't know which team they asked this from and the value changes. There are teams that have been asked for less from the Texans. Different picks have different values even that high in the draft.

Randy Harvey of the Houston Chronicle says the Texans should draft Jadeveon Clowney. His colleague, Jerome Solomon, said earlier during this interminably long pre-draft period the Texans should draft Teddy Bridgewater. Meanwhile, their esteemed John McClain keeps Clowney as his pick in his final mock draft after picking Johnny Manziel and Blake Bortles earlier in the process. As for Clowney? He's said he doesn't think the Texans will pass on him. But the Chronicle's Brian T. Smith says he was joking.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien plugged in his iPod for a practice soundtrack, writes Dave Zangaro of CSNHouston.com. O'Brien had some fun with this after practice, but said he does it to force communication. This, by the way, isn't new to the Texans' practices. Gary Kubiak played music as well.
