Sources: Texans expected to stay at No. 1

The Houston Texans are locked in on the first overall pick in the NFL draft and are not expected to make a trade, league sources tell ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
ESPN's Todd McShay and Mel Kiper both have the Texans selecting defensive end Jadeveon Clowney with the top pick in their final mock drafts.
Last week, Texans general manager Rick Smith said he knew whom he would take at No. 1 if the team keeps the pick.
If the Texans were to trade the pick, team sources have told ESPN's Ed Werder that it probably wouldn't happen until they are on the clock.
The Texans first suggested an interest in trading the pick in early January, after hiring Penn State's Bill O'Brien as coach to replace Gary Kubiak.
