5:51PM EST: Ian Rapoport is reporting that the Texans and Patriots are discussing a deal for quarterback Ryan Mallet.

Such a deal would allow for the Texans to draft whatever player they love at No.1

The Texans have a “lot of interest” in Patriots quarterbackRyan Mallett, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport confirmed on NFL Network’s “2014 NFL Draft Kickoff” on Thursday. CSN New England’s Tom Curran previously mentioned a potential trade of Mallett-to-Houston, although he cautioned that there were conflicting sources in the story. Curran’s source says a third-round pick would go to New England in the deal. (Our guess: It would be a 2015 pick.)

O’Brien, the new Texans head coach, was Mallett’s offensive coordinator during his rookie season in New England. Mallett has been mentioned in potential trade talks ever since — despite mediocre preseason results.

According to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, it’s more likely that the Falcons would target Buffalo linebacker Khalil Mack if he’s still on the board when the Browns pick at No. 4 overall.
