NFL Draft Rumors: Houston Texans to take QB with No. 1 pick


The NFL Draft is just around the corner and the Houston Texans are trying t debate what to do with the first overall pick. While there are many saying that a guy like Jadeveon Clowney is in the mix, it’s looking in increasingly likely that the team takes a quarterback with the first pick.

According to Texans beat writer John McClain, the Texans not taking a quarterback in May with the first pick would be ‘shocking’.

We sort of all have been figuring that the Texans will take a QB, it’s just a matter of who they will take. Johnny Manziel has a lot of hype at the moment but Blake Bortles seems to be hanging around as well. It’s a dell go to the wire, but the Texans at least know the position they’re targeting and it’s the player who’s the mystery.
