With Clowney now being able to play along side All Pro JJ Watt, how will this affect the Colts?

The Colts will have a tough time blocking both Clowney and Watt, but Clowney should have trouble his rookie year fitting into a new defensive scheme in Houston. Between the due of Watt and Clowney, the offensive line of the Colts have allowed a large amount of defenders to get to Andrew Luck during his two year career. Now with two great pass rushers that merit double-teams, Indianapolis will need to step up if they hope to keep Luck upright and in the pocket.  He may be a once in a lifetime talent, but this is still the NFL and Andrew Luck will be able to continually confuse Clowney with different looks and blocking packages. Advantage, Luck.
