The last question of the night came from a Texas A&M alumnus. The man asked O’Brien if there was any internal debate with the Texans about moving up in the first round in a move to select Manziel toward the back side of the opening round.

“No,” O’Brien said to a loud cheer. “Sorry.”

“We spent a lot of time with Johnny (Manziel) and I had great meetings with him,” O’Brien said. “He is a bright guy and I really enjoyed watching him play in college on film and enjoyed talking with him.”

O’Brien was speaking at St. Thomas to deliver a speech about "How To Build A Winning Team." It appears although O’Brien respects Manziel, Manziel didn’t fit the model of the team he’s trying to build in Houston.

We have a vision for our football team and we stuck to that vision," O'Brien. "Every decision we made in the draft we felt led to that vision and we’ll see if that vision turns out the way we believe it will in whatever, a year, two years, three years. It was what we believed in and we stuck with it and we stayed disciplined in the draft and Johnny’s in a great situation in Cleveland.”
