Can the draft get here soon enough?
The NFL draft is less than a week away and that means that fans everywhere will finally find out the answer to the much debated question: who will the Houston Texans take with the No. 1 pick in the draft?
GM Rick Smith knows—but he isn’t telling (of course).
“I absolutely know who I want,” Smith said
in an interview with “Texans Huddle” on Fox Sports Southwest. “I know the guys we like. The fortunate thing about having the first pick is I’ve got the pick of the litter…”
Rumors have bounced all over the place since the end of the regular season, but they (the rumors) appear to be settling back on the two players widely expected to be the No. 1 pick for months—South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.
The world will find out for certain on May 8.
