Houston Doesn't Pick Jadeveon Clowney First

When it comes to the NFL Draft — expect the unexpected. Every spring, football analysts and prognosticators scrutinize and forecast what teams will select the best college players in the country via mock drafts. But until the actual selections are made live at the NFL Draft, you just never truly know. This year, electrifying University of South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney seems to be the consensus No. 1 pick by the Houston Texans in the 2014 NFL Draft, which will be held Thursday night live from New York City’s famed Radio City Music Hall. The Texans wouldn’t pass up on the chance to form a Pro Bowl set of book ends in Clowney and J.J. Watt…would they? Just imagine if the Texans do not select the game changer with that top pick. That would literally flip the NFL Draft upside down. Click on for more scenarios that could turn the NFL Draft on its ear. Sometimes drafts are like the lotto — Hey, you never know. (Photos from left: Streeter Lecka/Getty Images, NFL)
