2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Durability might always be a bit of an issue for Clowney, but he seems to be hitting his stride after a promising 2016 season that earned him a Pro Bowl trip and second-team All-Pro honors. Still just 24, his prospect profile projects plenty more improvement if his health cooperates. Last year's production would project to about 67 tackles and eight sacks over 950 snaps, and there's a good chance he improves on his per-snap efficiency, too. That kind of production at age 23 for a 6-5, 270-pound end with 4.53 speed shows his significant upside.

2016

After a washout rookie season in 2014, Clowney was healthier during his sophomore NFL season. He showed signs of coming on last year -- his two-sack game against the Patriots stands out -- but injuries were still a factor, including a foot injury that sidelined him for Houston's playoff game against Kansas City. He reports the foot is 100 percent, but being hale in May is a far cry from being a 16-game player. If he can stay on the field, Clowney may emerge as an impact player.

2015

Clowney's coming off a disappointing rookie season that began with a knee injury and ended with a knee injury that required microfracture surgery. He began training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list, but has a targeted return before the beginning of the regular season. It's unclear if he'll be ready to be a full-time starter, but that's the goal.

2014

It's crucial that IDP drafters double-check the positional designation their league gives to Clowney, as he might be listed as an LB rather than a DL, but if he secures DL eligibility he'll be a borderline DL1 consideration. The Texans didn't pick Clowney first overall to bring him along slowly, so he'll start opposite Whitney Mercilus at 3-4 OLB, moving to DE in nickel formations. Clowney is like the Calvin Johnson of defensive end prospects, and he'll have the opportunity to post big numbers immediately with offenses primarily concerned with J.J. Watt. Clowney has 4.5 speed at 6-5, 266 pounds and should contend for a Pro Bowl spot immediately. Bone spurs in his right foot are the only real concern to his productivity.
