The Houston Texans have struck a four-year, fully guaranteed $22.272 million contract with Jadaveon Clowney, according to the Houston Chronicle.
That includes a $14.518 million signing bonus.
The top overall pick of the draft is projected to play outside linebacker for the Texans.
Clowney recorded a school-record 13.5 sacks and 23.5 tackles for loss as a sophomore, earning unanimous All-America honors and finished sixth in the Heisman Trophy voting.
Dealing with injuries and extra blocking attention last season, Clowney slumped to three sacks and 36 tackles as a junior. He finished his college career with 24 sacks and 127 tackles.
Clowney has freakish athleticism with a 4.53 in the 40-yard dash at 6-foot-5, 266 pounds.
