The Texans Are On the Clock

The Houston Texans are officially on the clock......

With the Texans losing to the Tennessee Titans 16-10, the team on Kirby Drive owns the first overall pick of the 2014 NFL draft. With much speculation on who that player could or will be, it is no secret what the position of need for the franchise is moving forward.


General Manager Rick Smith was in Orlando for the Russell Athletic Bowl to personally watch Teddy Bridgewater carve up the Miami Hurricanes going 35 for 45 for 447 yards and three touchdowns and leading the Louisville Cardinals to a 12-1 overall record.

It has also be noted that Smith will be traveling to see Brett Hundley ( UCLA, Sun Bowl), Bryce Petty (Baylor, Fiesta Bowl) , Blake Bortles (UCF, Fiesta Bowl) and Braxton Miller (Ohio State, Orange Bowl) in the coming weeks to watch all of the signal callers at work.

There is plenty of time for things to play out on the top of the draft, but it is imperative the Texans try and find their next quarterback for the franchise.
