Texans “Seriously Considering” Bridgewater, Bortles & Manziel At No. 1 Overall

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.

Under no circumstances will they take Clowney with the first pick. Bortles is… Read more »

Long ways to go. Thanks for the comment Reggie.
