Thoughts on All the Pre-Draft Chatter Surrounding the Texans


This will be short and simple.  The Houston Texans, who currently own the rights to the first pick in this year’s NFL draft, have the tough assignment of picking the player they think can most improve the team.  Many draft pundits have already concluded that the Texans will inevitably select Johnny Manziel, Blake Bortles, Jadeveon Clowney, or Teddy Bridgewater.  Although this is their job, it is way too early to speculate on who the Texans are leaning towards in the draft process.  The only things that Bill O’Brien and his staff have to judge players on right now are game film from this year and previous years, Senior Bowl results (none of the players who have been projected to the Texans were seniors), and assessments  from college coaches, families, etc.  They do not have combine results to analyze, personal interviews to look back on to judge their intelligence, work ethic, character, etc., or workouts with the team to analyze and nit-pick.  All of these rumors that are flying around are simply a way to keep fans interested in the NFL since it is now the off season.  I do not care how long these pundits and experts have been in their respective positions, they do not know 100% without a doubt who the Texans will be picking or who they are leaning towards.  None of it matters anyway.  The only thing that matters is when the Texans are on the clock and Roger Goodell finally announces,”With the first pick of the 2014 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans select ____________.”  Then we as fans can complain about or praise said pick.  Until then, all the conjectures and rumors are just hot air.
