The Texans have signed No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney, CSNHouston has confirmed.

According to the Houston Chronicle and Fox26, Clowney will get $22.272 million guaranteed with a $14.518 million signing bonus.

The only draft pick who remains unsigned is second-rounder Xavier Su'a-Filo, who is back at UCLA to finish up finals.

Clowney was a defensive end at South Carolina but the Texans have moved him to play outside linebacker in Romeo Crennel's 3-4 defense.

Clowney has been working with linebackers coach Mike Vrabel during the spring. The Texans will be back on the field on Monday for the first of the last four days of OTAs. After that, they have a mandatory minicamp.
