Houston (CBS Houston)–The Internet essentially exploded in the first quarter of the Houston Texans 32-7 win over the Atlanta Falcons tonight, when No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney crushed running back Antone Smith for a four yard loss and maybe the hit of the NFL preseason.

Smith, who you could say was Vincent Smith’d on the play, apparently wasn’t impressed.

“Just a guy,” Smith said of Clowney. “I don’t see anything special. He’s just a guy. He’s a guy who plays defensive end. He plays pretty good. Made a good play.”

Comments that make for the “yin” to the “yang” of draft gurus projecting Clowney as a potential Hall of Famer before his first professional down.

Smith, who carried eight times for 27 yards tonight, admitted the hit Clowney laid on him was a big one.

“I didn’t see anything,” he said. “The only thing I seen was me hitting the ground.”

But apparently neither Clowney nor the play was what Smith would call “special.”
