The first round of the NFL draft: Pick by pick, trade by trade

Published: Thursday, May 8 2014 6:17 p.m. MDT

For nearly three years, Jadeveon Clowney couldn't wait to get to the NFL, and the league was just as eager to add the player some called the best defensive prospect in a decade. No surprise: Clowney is the Texans' man. But Thursday's first pick of the 2014 NFL draft didn't come without some intrigue about how it would all turn out. There had been criticism of Clowney's work ethic last season and questions about whether the Texans would hold or trade the No. 1 slot.

"Tenacious" would be an apropos description. However, he is not a "cornerback" at 6 ft 1, 285. The body of the description does state that he won the Outland and Lombardi trophies as a "defensive lineman".
