reports that Bill O'Brien told him that the media is focusing on the top 3 QBs, but they dont have to draft one in the 1st.
Rick Smith on Johnny Manziel saying the Texans better draft him "Johnny's
a colorful player
. He did some really spectacular things in CFB"
...will be & how well & how successful he will be in our league,
that dictates where you'll take the guy
Rick Smith almost poetically "It's a futures projection. To the degree that you can be clear about what you think the guy's ability....
Smith cont'd "we are
not going to take a quarterback because
we want to hitch ourselves to a new regime. "
On O'Brien hitching himself to a young QB - "I know that we want effective play out of the position. We will evaluate all of these players..
On talent on the team - Smith says "Well there's talent, but we were 2-14....but what we did not do last year was play well collectively"
being back by Training Camp-"Yeah, yeah he's doing well. His rehab is going well. All indications now is that he'll be fine"
On #1 pick - "it is a valuable place to be, it gives you the opportunity, multiple times to pos urself to take the best player on the board"
