The Houston Texans have gone back and forth with what they might do with the No. 1 overall pick in May's NFL draft, as there are numerous options for a team that ended last season losing its last 14 games.

According to Lance Zierlein, a sports talk radio host in Houston, the Texans are leaning toward taking former South Carolina All-America Jadeveon Clowney with the first pick and will look at drafting a quarterback later in the draft.

The Texans have former starters Matt Schaub and Case Keenum, and backup T.J. Yates on the roster at quarterback going into the free-agent period, which starts Tuesday.

Clowney has gone on record saying that he wants to be the No. 1 pick, and Texans owner Bob McNair, a South Carolina alumnus, referred to the fellow Gamecock as "a once-in-every-10-years kind of physical specimen."
