#1 Houston Texans: Blake Bortles, QB UCF

Rory’s Take: Ok, fine, I will bite. Let’s just say the report that Bill O’Brien wants a big quarterback is true, then I for the sake of a shake-up will do this. I still see Bortles as a round two quarterback, but mocks are about looking at diverse thinking so we can roll with this for a little. Eventually when we start getting into trades things will look different.

Chase’s Take: I think Bortles gets a raw deal while Teddy Bridgewater gets elevated status while the two played in the same terrible conference this season with UCF beating Louisville on the road in both Bortles and Bridgewater’s final season. I am not as high on Bridgewater as most, and Bill O’Brien is definitely a guy who I can see wanting Bortles, but I think he would wait until later in the draft to do so as would his front office.

    that would be perfect for the raiders if clowney was there to trade down with someone else in the top 10 and get an extra 2nd and 3rd also if Watkins is still available with the next pick (if they were to trade down) then they should trade down one more time and get another 2nd and 3rd round pick and possibly draft the best available wr with the next pick and or trade down one more time to get another 2 and 3 or 4 depending on where they are and get the best available player at a need position and do something special in the 2nd and 3rd rounds, I know its not madden and stuff but its possible especially with the talent pool of this draft
