The Texans have been rumored to have Blake Bortles at the top or near the top of their draft board for quite some time. Now Matt Miller of B/R is reporting that if the draft was today, the Texans would select him first:
“The word from one team source. A high ranking team source told me that if the draft were today, the Houston Texans would draft Blake Bortles, quarterback Central Florida.”
I don’t understand this line of thinking from the Texans. Bortles is too much of a project in my mind to select with the top pick in the draft. He is the sexy choice for them right now but they should be focusing on Teddy Bridgewater.
Let’s see how things shakeout at the combine.
