The top picks from the 2014 NFL Draft will get their first taste of life in the big time as NFL training camps open this month. But while these young stars report to camp amid much fanfare, they also face struggles, on and off the field.

Jadeveon Clowney, a 6’ 5” linebacker from the University of South Carolina, emerged as the number one overall pick back in April despite enduring an injury-plagued season which severely impacted his otherwise stellar statistics.

After revealing that he played much of the 2013 season while suffering from a sports hernia, the 21 year-old underwent surgery in June, making him a question mark for the start of Houston Texans’ training camp, as reported in the Dedicated NFL section of However, the setback has not diminished Clowney’s ambition or sense of humor, as evidenced by a video recently posted on the Texans’ website featuring Clowney stating one of his goals for his rookie season: sacking Indianapolis Colts’ QB Andrew Luck.

Offensive Tackle Greg Robinson was taken second overall by the St. Louis Rams. But with depth on the left side, the Rams have decided to use Robinson as a guard in his rookie season, and the transition has been tough.

Houston Texans Dominated by New England Patriots, Lose 42-14

'Matt Schaub' photo (c) 2010, AJ  Guel - license: The New England Patriots showed up Monday night looking like the Super Bowl caliber team they’ve shown for the past decade and took a win against the Houston Texans, with a final score of 42-14.

The Patriots' defense took the life out of the second ranked Texans offense, led by Matt Schaub, robbing their best drive when free safety Devin McCourty grabbed an interception in the end zone. The Patriots’ number one offense, led by star quarterback Tom Brady, riddled the Texans’ defense with three touchdown passes, and went into halftime up 21-0.

The second half wasn’t much better for Houston; after letting Brady pass Johnny Unitas to be 4th in all-time leading touchdowns, with his 18th game with 4+ touchdown passes, the Texans put points on the board with a quick goal line rush from Arian Foster. New England would go on and score again when WR Brandon Lloyd picked up a fumble (by Partriots teammate RB Danny Woodhead) for a touchdown.

The Texans headed home with an embarrassing 42-14 loss, ending their winning streak at six, while New England extends theirs to seven games in a row. Brady finished with a 21/35 passing ratio and 296 yards with four touchdowns, two of them to TE Aaron Hernandez. Texans' QB Schaub threw 19 for 32 and 232 yards, no TDs, just an INT.

Houston Texans’ J.J. Watt Credited with Extra Sack

'jj-watt-houston-texans' photo (c) 2012, NFL News Desk Admin - license: Week 14 of the NFL season is already upon us, yet for Houston Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt, he's still earning rewards from his play in a week 13 victory over the Tennessee Titans (24-10). It's almost like catching a much needed ace on the flop to win the final table at

The NFL announced on Thursday that it would credit Watt with a sack of Titans quarterback Jake Locker, bringing his total on the year to 16.5. Initially ruled as a team sack and fumble, the NFL decided the sack should go to Watt after reviewing the film. It statistically marks his second of the game and sixth over the past three weeks.

Watt remains second in the NFL in sacks, behind only San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith (17.5 sacks), and on pace to finish the season with 22 sacks – a half a sack shy of the NFL record, which was set by former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan (22.5 in 2001).

In addition to his 16.5 sacks, Watt has 15 passes defended, making him the only player in NFL history to record 15 or more sacks and 15 or more passes defended in the same season.
