John McClain reports that the Houston Texans are “seriously considering” using their No. 1 pick on the top-three quarterback prospects — Teddy Bridgewater, Blake Bortles and Johnny Manziel.
- As of now, Houston has yet to eliminated any of these players, according to McClain.
McClain has been adamant that the Texans “are taking a quarterback” with No. 1 overall pick in May for a few months now, despite reports that they could look to bring in a veteran quarterback and use their pick on a different player like South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney.
At this point, there really is no consensus top quarterback, but it appears as though Bortles could have a slight edge based on some positive comments from draft evaluators in recent weeks.
For what it’s worth, we have the Texans taking Bortles at No. 1 overall in our most recent 2014 NFL Mock Draft.
