All the teams are playing games with who they favor, he was told don't believe any of it as they are all sending out info to try and figure out where the other teams are leaning but not to bank too much on any of it at this time. He was also told if Manziel knocks it out of the park Thursday there could be some real info leaking as to the Texans decision. If not and he remains in the pack we may not know their intentions until draft day.
Take it for what it's worth, but he's been pretty spot on with his info.
I wouldn't mind a Clowney/Robinson at 1-1 and a trade back into the 1st in the 20's and pick JM. 2 most dynamic players in the draft on the same team. Along with 3rd down back Jerick McKinnon and you get the 3 most electric players in the draft and you add much needed team speed.
