Jadeveon Clowney Expected To Be Ready For Training Camp


He was one of the most hyped up draft prospects of all time, which makes it all the more unjust that NFL fans were robbed of the chance to see what Jadeveon Clowney could do on the field during his first rookie season.

Amassing only seven tackles in four games before succumbing to a knee injury that required microfracture surgery, Clowney now looks set to contribute as a member of the Texans’ vaunted front seven in 2015.

Coach Bill O’Brien’s initial plan was to have his former number one overall pick healthy by the start of the regular season, but Clowney is reportedly progressing so well that his expected time frame for return has improved to August.

Houston’s coaching and medical staff will aim to ease Clowney back into physical activity towards the end of training camp and throughout the 2015 preseason, which should result in some decent playing time for the young pass rusher.

Standing 6’5” and over 260 pounds, Clowney boasts prototypical size for a 4-3 defensive end/linebacker hybrid. His physical attributes complement his bag of block-shedding tricks, rendering Texans fans giddy in anticipation of what their defense could become with some luck on the injury front.

Clowney will line up alongside the league’s most disruptive defensive player in J.J. Watt, underrated Left End Jared Crick and fresh signee Vince Wilfork, a true Nose Tackle who can still swallow up blockers, and is among the last of a dying breed.

Even among a colorful cast of players and coaches in the upcoming season of Hard Knocks – which will feature the Texans in its tenth season – don’t be surprised if Clowney’s return to form develops into the show’s most engrossing storyline.
