Who is going to be the top overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft? For starters, the Houston Texans, should they choose to keep the pick, have a plenty of great options in a year where the crop of talent is considered one of the deepest in recent memory. After going 2-14, a season where the team finished with 14 straight defeats, the Texans need a ton of help, which is surprising considering they were AFC South champs with a 12-4 record in 2013. Quarterback is a glaring position of need and fortunately, there are a slew of excellent signal callers available. If the Texans want to go with a local favorite, they can pick Texas A&M quarterback and former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel, which would definitely put fannies in the seats and create some on-field buzz. Other quarterbacks who could go no. 1 include Teddy Bridgewater of Louisville or Blake Bortles of UCF.
If the Texans trade the first pick, don't be surprised if someone swoops in and drafts South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney. Long established as the draft's best athlete, the defensive end has the "once in a generation" label bestowed on very few players. Other top prospect who could be considered for the first overall pick are offensive tackles Jake Matthews of Texas A&M and Greg Robinson of Auburn.So what player will be the first pick in the NFL draft?
