If the Texans want him, Teddy Bridgewater will be there. Jadaveon Clowney will be there too.

Louisville quarterback Bridewater and South Carolina defensive end Clowney will both enter the NFL draft.

The Texans have the top pick in the draft. The Texans need a quarterback but Clowney might be the best players in the draft.

Bridgewater is considered one of -- if not the -- best quarterbacks in this draft class. This season, he completed 71 percent of his passes and threw for nearly 4,000 yards with 31 touchdowns and just four interceptions.

Clowney, after his game on Wednesday, also declared that had played his final collegiate game. Clowney is considered to be one of the best defensive players in college football.

Bridgewater, along with Johnny Manziel, Derek Carr and Blake Bortles, is one of the top quarterbacks in the class.

The Texans struggled at the quarterback position in 2013. Incumbent starter Matt Schaub threw too many interceptions and Case Keenum didn't look like an NFL quarterback.

If the Texans took Clowney, they would have a formidable defensive end duo with him and J.J. Watt.
