In 43 days, the Houston Texans will be on the clock. A new coach, new quarterback, and a new hope that this regime will finally be on it’s way to greatness.

This is my Mock Draft. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My Mock Draft is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.

My Mock Draft, without me, is useless. Without my Mock Draft, I am useless. I must pick my Mock Draft true. I must pick straighter than my enemy, ESPN, who is trying to kill me. I must out pick him before he out picks me. I will…

My Mock Draft and I know that what counts in this NFL Draft is not the rounds we select, the noise of our fans, nor the selection we make. We know that it is the hits that count. We will hit…

My Mock Draft is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its sights and its holes. I will keep my Mock Draft clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready. We will become part of each other. We will…

This is my Mock Draft.

With the first pick of the 2014 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans select…

Jadeveon Clowney
DE, South Carolina

With all of the question marks surrounding the “Top 3 Quarterbacks” in this draft, Jadeveon Clowney is the safest pick. Plus, I believe that Clowney and J.J. Watt paired together on the defensive line,  would be a neck breaking duo. If I was to go quarterback here, it would be Johnny Manziel.

Greg Robinson
Tackle, Auburn

Sam Bradford is slowing evolving into David Carr. He needs pass protection and needs pass protection bad. If he’s still checking down after the addition of Greg Robinson, then the Rams will know it’s time to look elsewhere at quarterback.

Johnny Manziel
QB, Texas A&M

This should be an obvious choice for Jacksonville. I could seem them screwing this up, and drafting Blake Bortles with this selection. Who’s nothing more than Blaine Gabbert, but with a hot girlfriend. They need a player to define their franchise, and there isn’t a better player in this draft than Johnny Manziel.

Sammy Watkins
WR, Clemson

My heart tells me that the Browns would prefer to go quarterback with this pick. But after evaluating their status after a good free agency period, they’re likely to load up on offensive weapons. There isn’t a better offensive weapon in this draft than Watkins.

Derek Carr
QB, Fresno State

The Raiders were dumb enough to trade for Matt Schaub, and they’re dumb enough to draft David Carr. They’re in “win now” mode. Everyone of their free agent acquisitions were players at the tail end of their career. With little separation between the quarterbacks in this draft, David Carr shouldn’t be deemed as anymore of a risk than Bortles or Bridgewater. Don’t get caught up in the national media hype. You’ll end up looking like Geno Smith.

Khalil Mack
DE/OLB, Buffalo

Hi Atlanta, this is Defense. Have we met? No-brainer with this pick. Atlanta’s defense needs a little bit of everything. Mack is a must for those dirty birds.

Mike Evans
WR, Texas A&M

No quarterback here, folks. The Buccaneers signed Josh McCown in free agency and they have Mike “I know I look a little funny, but you should see the girl I’m with” Glennon. Mike Evans will help stretch defensive backs away from Vincent Jackson. But seriously, look at Glennon and his GF.

Blake Bortles
QB, Central Florida

People of Minnesota, welcome to my nightmare. That is all.

    Raiders will not be taking a QB at number 5 with just trading a pick for Schaub. Try again.

    • marcusdoesurmom

      Justify one move they made this offseason and how it’s helped their organization, and try again.

      • Bob

        Well aren’t you a wonderful “journalist”.

        • marcusdoesurmom

          I’m the equivalent of Tim Tebow when it comes to journalism. I could never carry that card. My prediction is based off of the love affair Oakland has with Derek Carr. No one ever factors in stupidity in NFL Mock drafts. If they did Jerry Jones and Al Davis bloodline would likely make better decisions. Or maybe give the job to someone that’s actually qualified. Ha. Who am I kidding? That will never happen.

    As a Browns fan I can live with the pick of Watkins at #4, I personal think it’s a little to high to draft a WR. And with the talent in the WR pool of this draft it almost seems like a waste, when there will be 3-4 guys available at #26 who have the potential to be #1 WR’s. I’d rather like to see them take Jake Matthews and play him at RT. The OL needs some serious upgrades over last season and they didn’t bring in any FA’s, so this pick would be a good start. Schwartz rated good last season but he tends to struggle in one on one battles in pass protection, I think moving him into RG would help him as a player. Taking Matthews secures the right side of the OL, and they can groom him to take over for Joe Thomas whenever he decides to retire.
    I got to disagree with you at #26 though. Maybe Bridgewater can redeem himself in his upcoming private workout secession but after a lackluster combine and a even worse pro day, I hope the Browns pass on him. I personal see no difference from the day 2 QB prospects, from the day 1 prospects. And they’ve got multiple picks in the 3rd and 4th round, why not use those picks to draft a project QB. If they pass on Watkins at #4 this would be a good place to grab a WR to be opposite of Gordon. OC Shanahan likes big outside WR’s so Benjamin an Jordan Matthews fit the bill. If not they still need ILB, CB, OL, and upgrades at almost every position.
