NFL Draft Poll Series: Who should first pick be?

New, comments

Who should the Houston Texans take with the first pick, or should they even stay in that spot?

Scott Halleran

Draft day is here and the Houston Texans are on the clock. After an offseason full of rumors, smokescreens, more smokescreens, it's still unclear as to what the Texans will do with the No. 1 overall pick.

They could opt to trade down, but it will be a steep price for anyone willing to move up. They could keep the pick and take arguably the best defensive prospect in quite sometime in South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney.

But for all his talents, Clowney might not be as effective in the Texans' 3-4 defense as Buffalo's Khalil Mack would be. It looks as though those are the two players they're down two, with a Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel being a darkhorse.
