The sky is the limit when it comes to Houston Texans’ star Jadeveon Clowney.

Our very own Pete Manfre wrote an article about how Texans’ pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney could become the face of Houston’s defense this coming season.

Texans’ defensive line coach Anthony Weaver went as far as to say that Clowney is good enough to get inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame if everything were to work out during his career.

From the Houston Chronicle:

"“I told him he can be a Hall of Famer,” said Weaver, a retired former Texans and Baltimore Ravens defensive end. “Now, there’s a number of things that have to happen. You’ve got to stay healthy, you have to be consistent and persistent. But he has all the qualities and athletic attributes in order to do that.”“It’s been tremendous, and we’re still just scratching the tip of the iceberg,” Weaver said. “He has put in the work, he’s dedicated to his teammates and I’m just excited to see where he goes from here.”"

Clowney will need a lot of things to fall into place for him to become a Hall of Fame player.

The most important thing is of course staying healthy. And that could be difficult for Clowney after dealing so many injuries during his first few years in the NFL.

Another problem is that Clowney underwent microfracture surgery on his knee as a rookie and that typically shortens the career of NFL players.

The good news is that Clowney is a freak of an athlete and can defy the odds.
