Clowney Selected First By Texans in 2014 NFL Draft

NEW YORK (WHSV) -- With the first pick of the 2014 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans selected Jadeveon Clowney from South Carolina.

The defensive end finished his senior season with 162 tackles, 29 tackles for loss and 29.5 sacks with 11 forced fumbles and five defensive touchdowns. Clowney is the first defensive player chosen as the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft since 2006.

Heisman trophy winner Johnny Manziel wasn't taken until the 22nd pick of the first round when the Cleveland Browns selected the Texas A&M quarterback.

The Washington Redskins do not have a pick in the first round of this year's draft for the second straight year. The Redskins traded their first round picks for the last two seasons to acquire quarterback Robert Griffin III in 2012.

Washington has the 34th overall pick and six total selections in this year's draft.
