The Houston Texans are facing a dilemma with the number one pick in this year's NFL draft, and I am just as curious as everyone else as to what they are going to do with it. Could they pick Johnny Manziel or will they go after the much maligned defense end who has such a high ceiling? Only time will tell, but here are the five worst ways that they this could shake out.
This one is a quandary. Manziel looks like Brett Favre 2.0 to me, but I also admittedly did not play professional football for a living. The book on Manziel has been mixed to say the least, but he will be must watch television at the next level bust or no.
The questions about his work ethic remain, but there is admittedly talent there as well. We will have to see what they decide to do. My bet is that ultimately they will take Clowney and hope that he can make them even more devastating on defense.
If they end up wanting Manziel, then they should probably trade down a bit. The difficulty is figuring out how far to go down, because if they blow it then they would never hear the end of it. This will be a difficult balance for the Texans.
I have heard that there are a few QBs in this class that are worth drafting, but the gem among them is still unclear. If they Ryan Leaf this pick, then that would be the worst case scenario. I do not think they will blow it that bad, but you never know how a draft looks five years after the fact.
The Texans have a difficult decision to make, but they really need to stabilize their offense. J.J. Watt brings an intimidating presence to the defense, but they need to bring some of that same edge on offense if they expect to succeed in the playoffs.
