Every Monday as we head towards the NFL Draft, we will have a poll to see which QB you want the Houston Texans to select in May’s NFL Draft. We’ll bring you the latest articles, videos, and mock drafts regarding each QB prospect as we come closer to the Texans first overall selection.
- Chase Goodbread (NFL.com) on how NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks sees the quarterbacks.
- Greg A. Bedard (MMQB) has the skinny on Teddy.
- Greg Peshek (Rotoworld) with a great read on 2014 QB prospects.
- Stephen Forsha (ToroTimes) on the three potential top picks for the Texans.
- Brian McDonald (State Of The Texans) says the Texans should pass on Manziel.
- Eddie George breaks down the future for Teddy Bridgewater.
- Chris Burke (Sports Illustrated) has the Texans taking Teddy Bridgewater.
The pre-draft process can feel rather interminable, so most prominent prospects trek through ebbs and flows in their hype. Right now, Bridgewater’s in a bit of a lull. Blame it on Louisville playing an early bowl game or focus falling on Blake Bortles and Johnny Manziel. Whatever the reason, Bridgewater has slipped out of the spotlight a bit.
- Dane Brugler (CBS Sports) has the Texans taking Blake Bortles.
Losing the final 14 games of last season, the Texans deserve this top spot. But despite the forgettable season, Houston isn’t a complete re-build and new head coach Bill O’Brien inherits a roster that only needs a few tweaks. If the Texans keep this pick, it would be a surprise if they went in any other direction but quarterback and while Teddy Bridgewater seems to be the favorite, don’t count out Bortles here.
- Matt Miller (Bleacher Report) has the Texans taking Teddy Bridgewater.
Neither Matt Schaub nor Case Keenum is the long-term answer here, and with the first overall pick in the draft, it’s wise for general manager Rick Smith to find his guy at the position. Heading into the pre-draft months, no player looks more like a franchise quarterback than Teddy Bridgewater.
