HOUSTON (CBS Houston):  He sported a new Houston Texans hat with a wide brim and a wider smile.

Flanked by GM Rick Smith to his right and new Head Coach Bill O’Brien to his left, Jadeveon Clowney met the media for the first time at Reliant Stadium as a Texan.

“I’m just ready to get going with these guys right here, and let them show me my way through the NFL,” Clowney said in his opening remarks.  “This is a dream come true for me.”

Clowney’s physical talents are well documented, but it was more than just his natural God-given abilities that convinced O’Brien to make “JD” the top overall selection in this year’s draft Thursday.

O’Brien referenced the interviews that he and the Texans brass had with Clowney at his pro day in South Carolina.  “I was just impressed,” O’Brien said.  “…with the things that he talked about.  He talked about being a good teammate, loving to compete.  He loves game day.  He talked about his family…and he really talked about how much he loves winning.”

Clowney quickly shot down any reference to taking it easy last season at South Carolina, and expressed he would not have an issue with learning to be an Outside Linebacker.

“I dont think its going to be a …problem for me,” the newest Texan said.  ” I feel like I can play standing up or being down.  Whatever the coaches want me to do, I’m willing to do.”

It was the right attitude and right thing to say for a guy widely considered to be the only “right pick” for the Texans in the top spot.
