Thoughts on NFL draft 1st round?

After weeks of scouting and debating, the Houston Texans decided on the obvious choice at No. 1: Jadeveon Clowney, the South Carolina defensive end considered by most to be the top talent in the 2014 NFL draft. A few minutes later, the Jacksonville Jaguars made a splash at No. 3 by selecting quarterback Blake Bortles ahead of superstar Johnny Manziel. It all came as part of a dramatic first round, which ended with Teddy Bridgewater going 32nd to the Minnesota Vikings. What are your thoughts on the evening?

Tough choice for Texans at No. 1?

Much like the last time the Houston Texans had the No. 1 overall pick, it seems this year's selection will be a difficult one. Long it has been considered a choice between the top NFL draft talent (Jadeveon Clowney) and a home-state quarterback (Johnny Manziel), but in his latest mock (Insider) Todd McShay has Houston going with another signal caller: UCF's Blake Bortles (Manziel ended up No. 4 to the Cleveland Browns, one after Teddy Bridgewater to the Jacksonville Jaguars). Is this a good pick for the Texans? How will Manziel, a new Nike athlete, fare in the NFL?
