If you for some reason thought Jadeveon Clowney was going to have to ease himself into the NFL, it would appear that you were wrong. The No. 1 draft pick made back-to-back big-time plays in the Houston Texans' preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons, including recording his first unofficial NFL sack.

Clowney started things off with another one of those untouched-into-the-backfield-oh-my-god-is-that-running-back-alive hits that's quickly becoming his trademark. RIP Antone Smith.

ALERT TO OFFENSIVE LINEMEN: We understand you don't want to step in front of that wrecking ball of a man, but your running backs would really prefer you at least attempt to slow him down.

Here's a GIF as well as a mandatory link to the 2013 Outback Bowl hit.

On the very next play, Clowney smoked left tackle Sam Baker around the edge and sacked Matt Ryan for a seven-yard loss.

This guy is gonna be good, y'all.
