Bryce Harper makes the NFL Draft joke that you were waiting for all day

You had to know that when Jadeveon Clowney was drafted by the Houston Texans in Thursday night's NFL Draft, someone was going to make a groan-worthy joke connecting Clowney to Bryce Harper's famous "clown question, bro" quote.

Who better than Bryce Harper?

It's a bad joke that might actually be so bad it's good because Harper himself made it. Think about that for a second.

The Washington Nationals outfielder actually relayed some proper congratulations to Clowney on going No. 1 overall, the same position in which Harper was drafted in the 2010 MLB draft.

Harper didn't go as far as to offer any advice to his fellow No. 1 pick, but if he had, it probably would have been this: Always hustle.
