Clowney reportedly is meeting with the Houston Texans, who hold the first pick in the draft, on Monday. The South Carolina defensive end had 13 sacks in 2012 and just three in 2013 as a junior before declaring for the draft.

Clowney’s lack of production in 2013 has drawn criticism from NFL analysts. He’s still the favorite to go No. 1 overall, however.
