With so many mock drafts and so many pundits saying who the Texans should draft with the overall No. 1 pick in this year’s NFL Draft we know that it is really all just people guessing what the Texans are going to do. All the while trying to not influence what they want the Texans to do. So we decided to ask the simple question. What do you want the Texans to do? What do you think the Texans will do? Here is what our staff wants and what they think.

Patrick Creighton (Reporter/Host):
Want: Teddy Bridgewater (tape don’t lie)
Think: Blake Bortles (size/potential + GOL connection)

Raymond Cleboski (Promotions Manager):
I WANT the Texans to draft Johnny Manziel. A mobile QB with a good arm is something the Texans have never had, plus it would bring excitement that hasn’t been felt about a draft pick in Houston since 06.
I THINK the Texans will draft Clowney. The Texans will choose the best player available player if it makes sense, and Clowney surpasses anybody athletically.

Jim Mudd (Producer – In The Loop):
I want Khalil Mack.
I think they will go JaDaveon Clowney.

Ryan McCredden (Program Director):
I want Johnny Manziel. He is a playmaker that will bring some excitement and a winning attitude to this team that has never been seen.
I think they will trade back. They’ll get somebody who wants one of these guys so badly that they will move back and get some more picks while staying in the top 8 picks. At that point, they’ll still look to draft Blake Bortles, but if he isn’t available they will take the best player available (Mack, Matthews, Robinson) and get a QB in round 2.

Adam Spolane (Reporter):
Who do you WANT the Texans to draft with the 1st overall pick in the
2014 NFL Draft? JaDaveon Clowney – The first pick in the draft should always be someone that you think will be a superstar for the next decade. Clowney has the ceiling, the quarterbacks don’t.

Brien Straw (Host – B-Straw & Pauly-G):
I want them to draft Clowney
I think they will draft Clowney

Nick Wright (Host – In The Loop):
I want them to draft Manziel.
I think they will draft Bortles.

Nate Griffin (Reporter/Host):
Quite frankly, it’s hard to gauge their thought process. But, I don’t see them taking any of the three most talked-about quarterbacks with the first pick; too much of a gamble when considering that this guy is going to be the face of the franchise for the next 10 to 15 years.

Therefore, I’d like to see the Texans trade down if possible, with Cleveland, and take Jadeveon Clowney if he is available. If no takers for the a trade, take Clowney or Khalil Mack with the first pick. These are two really outstanding players. I think Khalil Mack is going to surprise some people.

Laura Reynolds (Assistant Program Director):
Who do you WANT the Texans to draft with the 1st overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft? Jadeveon Clowney
Who do you THINK the Texans will draft with the 1st overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft? Jadeveon Clowney

Sean Pendergast (Host – The Triple Threat):
WANT:
Manziel. Best player at the most important position and immediate relevance.
THINK:
Clowney. It’s safe and boring, so it’s basically a lock.

John Lopez (Host – In The Loop):
Who do you WANT the Texans to draft with the 1st overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft? Manziel.
Who do you THINK the Texans will draft with the 1st overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft? Bortles

Robert Henslee (Sports Director):
I’d love to see them draft Manziel…
I think it will be Bortles.

Rich Lord (Host – The Triple Threat):
Want: Clowney, although I’d prefer that they explore the trade market for a team that desperately needs him.
Think: Manziel

Brad Davies (Host)
WANTS – JOHNNY FOOTBALL
THINKS – CLOWNEY

Will Grubb (Producer/Reporter – The Triple Threat)
Who I want? Johnny Manziel
Who I think? Blake Bortles

Matt Murphy (Producer)
Who do you WANT the Texans to draft with the 1st overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft?
Johnny Manziel (won’t happen)
Who do you THINK the Texans will draft with the 1st overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft?
Jadaveon Clowney (a mistake)

Chris Jones (Producer – Mad Radio):
Who I want the Texans to pick with the firs overall pick is Johnny Manziel. I love the superstar aura around him. I like the excitement he will bring to the season.
Who I think they will take is Clowney. Have to say it’s the safest pick but I don’t like it. Need the man at QB!

Brett Dolan (Reporter):
Want- Johnny Football
Think- Blake Bortles.
They can’t pass on a QB #1.

Lara Hall (Producer – B-Straw & Paul-G):
I want them to draft Clowney first because I don’t think that any of the QBs available have as much promise as Clowney does so I think they should take him first then go with a later round QB that O’Brien can then develop.
I think they will draft Clowney because he seems to be the most promising prospect and O’Brien seems to pride himself on being able to cultivate better QBs so they’ll go with whichever lower round prospect O’Brien thinks he can work with instead of one of the guys who will go in the first round.

Mike Meltser (Host – Mad Radio):
Who do you WANT the Texans to draft with the 1st overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft?
Teddy Bridgewater
Who do you THINK the Texans will draft with the 1st overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft?
Jadeveon Clowney

Shaun Bijani (Host):
I want the Texans to pick Johnny Manziel with their number 1 overall selection.
It goes without saying, that i think the guy can play and is talented and smart enough/tough/gritty enough to translate his QB play to the next level. I also think that while the concern about his size and strong potential to break down over time is worth it. i don’t believe you draft a guy to be your QB for the next 8-10 years…those guys aren’t drafted on a yearly basis. I do believe that you MUST draft a QB that you believe can help your team win and win fairly quickly (within next 2 seasons) in the Texans situation.
I think the Texans will draft Blake Bortles with their number 1 selection. Most by now may believe it should be Clowney, but I don’t think O’Brien is willing to take a chance on swinging and missing on all 3 QB’s to draft a guy with questions about work ethic. O’Brien, to me, seems like a no nonsense coach, which is a culture shock for this organization and for its current bunch of players. Bortles has the size, smarts, arm and demeanor that I think would be a good fit.

Alex Del Barrio (Reporter):
Who I think the Texans should draft: Johnny Manziel-QB- Texas A&M: The Texans need a Quarterback and it should be Johnny Manziel. Not only do I think he has all the tools to be the best quarterback out of this draft with his leadership ability, his athleticism, and the undying desire to get better. The Texans automatically become exciting locally and nationally just to see what Johnny Football can do. Much like Nolan Ryan was a Texas hero, Manziel can be the same for Houston’s football team. The kid wants to be the best, let him be the best in Houston.
Who the Texans will draft: Blake Bortles-QB-Central Florida: He’s a Bill O’Brien guy. He’s the guy who may have the most upside, but you aren’t quite sure. Bill O’Brien may want the prototype, and if there is any QB in the draft that is the prototype it is Bortles. Manziel may be too flashy for the Texans. Bortles may not play right away, but he’s a guy O’Brien can mold. Bortles will be the safest QB choice for a team that needs a QB.

Paul Gallant (Host – B-Straw & Pauly-G):
Want: Clowney
Will draft: Clowney

Seth Payne (Host – Mad Radio):
Want: Clowney
Will draft: Clowney

Ted Johnson (Host – The Triple Threat):
Wants: Johnny Manziel
Thinks: Blake Bortles with a dark horse of Khalil Mack
