The Houston Texans need a quarterback, and some have speculated that they’ll look at taking one with their No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft. New head coach Bill O’Brien isn’t denying that they’ll take a quarterback, but he isn’t committing to taking one in the first round.

“I don’t think there’s any question that we’ll draft a quarterback in the draft,” O’Brien told NFL Network, via Pro Football Talk. “Where we draft that quarterback, I don’t think we know yet. We don’t even know that yet. We’re still in the process of studying all these prospects, in the process of putting a grade on them and place them where they would be in the draft. The big thing is it’s such a long process. We’re in the stage now where we go to the Pro Days and eventually we bring them into our facility for an interview, we call it an on-campus interview in Houston. As we get closer and closer we’ll obviously be able to make a decision.”
