Default Re: Matt Miller's Latest First-Round Projections

2/26

1. Houston Texans

The Pick: Blake Bortles, QB, Central Florida

This is not the pick I would make as general manager of the Houston Texans. However, this is the pick I believe they would make if the draft were happening today.

The decision will be a long and difficult one for Houston. There are four quarterbacks to consider—Teddy Bridgewater, Johnny Manziel, Derek Carr and Bortles—as well as freaks like Jadeveon Clowney and Greg Robinson. But until you have a quarterback you believe in, you have to keep trying to get one.

Bortles is raw, but if he develops as expected, he'll be a high-level starter. He's big, impossible to bring down in the backfield and has the athleticism to improvise, both in and out of the pocket. He doesn't have Colin Kaepernick's arm, but his strength is good enough to push the ball up field while he's on the run or from the pocket.
