NFL Draft rumors: Johnny Manziel isn't good fit for Texans

While we all attempt to figure out what direction the Houston Texans could be leaning with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, it appears that the tide is rolling away from Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.

Manziel is one of the most highly speculated potential selections for Houston, along with Jadeveon Clowney and Blake Bortles.

However, according to ESPN and Scout Inc.’s Todd McShay, there is a good chance he won’t be able to mesh with the franchise in Houston.

 “From talking to guys I trust, I just don’t think Manziel is the fit for the Texans,” McShay said, via

There has always been the belief that new Texans head coach Bill O’Brien would prefer a sturdier quarterback in the pocket like Bortles, who also has a better head on his shoulders and less concerns off the field, and McShay’s comments seem to back that up.

If the Texans are concerned that Johnny Manziel has too much of a risk of being a headache, then he can likely be removed from the first-round discussion.
