New York, NY (.com) - As selections are made, we'll provide pick- by-pick analysis for the entire first round as it plays out Thursday night in New York.

1. Houston Texans - Jadeveon Clowney (DE, South Carolina)

Analysis: Shocking, right? Clowney is the best talent in the draft and immediately provides the Texans with a formidable pass rush. Having Clowney line up opposite J.J. Watt on the end of the defensive line is a terrifying thought for opponents, especially AFC South competition. The Texans have to keep pace with the Colts and Andrew Luck in the division, so adding Clowney to be a disrupter makes plenty of sense. We'll see if Houston decides to try and use him as a pass-rushing linebacker from time to time.

2. St. Louis Rams - Greg Robinson (OT, Auburn)

Analysis: The Rams desperately needed some help on the offensive line, and they immediately upgrade with Robinson, who will likely slide in at one of the tackle positions right away. Sam Bradford hasn't been able to stay consistent in his time with St. Louis, and part of that is because he gets knocked down and is rushed frequently.
