The NFL preseason is a time for teams to try to figure out their best lineups for the upcoming slate of 16 games.

Players try out new roles, try to fit into new systems and, sometimes, try to learn new positions altogether.

That’s the case with former South Carolina star Jadeveon Clowney, the Houston Texans’ No. 1 overall pick from the 2014 NFL Draft.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Clowney has been moved from his right defensive end spot to outside linebacker on the first depth chart of the year:

“That’s an early preseason depth chart I guess we have to release,” coach Bill O’Brien said. “There are a lot of spots up for grabs.

“I’ll say this: Covington’s doing a good job. He’s a tough kid, plays hard, but we have a lot of guys that we play up front, and it’s definitely a position battle.”

Clowney was finally able to stay healthy last year, appearing in 14 games and recording six sacks. Now, he’ll try to have his best season yet, but it may come at a different position.
