Just before the ball dropped on 2013 we learned the Bill O'Brien to the Houston Texans saga had taken the next step. Now it looks as though O'Brien will have a decision to make with the top pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. With Matt Schaub aging and coming off a rough season the Tans will have a decision to make. Do they give O'Brien a chance to work with Case Keenum, a former Houston Cougar standout, and see if he can work the magic that helped Matt McGloin become an NFL starter, or do they go the more likely route and take one of the quarterbacks coming out in the NFL Draft. If the Texans do go that way, which I think is pretty safe to assume, O'Brien will have an interesting decision to make.
Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel are each about to enter the NFL Draft. Bridgewater has long been assumed to be the top quarterback available in the upcoming draft if eligible, but Manziel is a local star with a Heisman Trophy and a terrific following. While O'Brien may be most concerned about finding a quarterback he can work with, the star appeal of Manziel should not be overlooked in a league equally as concerned about jersey and ticket sales as they are wins and losses.
