Jadeveon Clowney has signed an autograph and card deal with Panini America, the company announced on Friday.

The defensive end was the top overall draft pick selected by the Houston Texans.

“It’s rare for a defensive player to generate so much excitement and capture so much interest from trading card collectors; the fact that Clowney has illustrates just how dynamic and talented he really is,” said Panini America CEO Mark Warsop. “His presence – on both Rookie Cards and autographed trading cards – in our complete line of 2014 NFL trading card products is just one more reason we’re so optimistic about the immediate and long-term future of our NFL business.”

Panini also revealed Clowney will be at the NFL Rookie Premiere (May 28 – June 1) with 39 other NFL rookies. Players will sign cards and stickers to be placed in future releases.

Panini has already made announcements that it has signed quarterbacks Teddy Bridgewater and Johnny Manziel to card deals.
