Default Who would you be OK with drafting at 1.1?

Note: you can vote for multiple options.

I've seen lots of discussion to this point but I'm curious to see which of these options people would be OK with drafting at 1.1. Not who your favorite is, but which of these, if they came about, would you say "I'm happy enough."

For the trade down option, assume we get a little less than "fair" value for the number 1 pick. That is, the tradedown means we get an OK deal, but nothing that'll seem like a steal (for now).

I want Clowney or Robinson.

Trade down option would be great depending on compensation.

I would be "okay" with any because each has risk but offer potential. My preference would be trade.

Default Re: Who would you be OK with drafting at 1.1?

I'd prefer Watkins, Robinson, or Clowney at 1-1. I don't really like any of the QBs. If we can get a good deal, I'd be more than fine with a trade-down.

BUT.

Whomever the Texans pick, I'll get behind it and support it and hope for the best.

I want Robinson because I think he'll help this team win more games than Watkins right off the bat.

I want Watkins because I think he's the best player in this draft.

I can understand if we pick Manziel, Clowney, or trade down.

Manziel, Bridgewater, or trade down.

Won't be butthurt if we take Sammy Watkins or Bortles, will be butthurt if we take Clowney.

Interesting note about this poll from earlier polls is the precipitous drop by Teddy and the rise of Jadevon.

Clowney, Manziel, Mack. Maybe Bridgewater, but his stock seems to be dropping.

Only against Robinson because spending a top-10 pick on a RT is idiotic.

Bortles is the only one that would get me butthurt.

Trade down would depend on the partner. Dropping to 6 with Atlanta was pretty much mean no Robinson, Manziel, or Mack.

Default Re: Who would you be OK with drafting at 1.1?

It's been my opinion that Clowney is the best football player in this draft AND that the QBs don't wow me. Unless some great trade comes up, Clowney is my 1-1 and QB is addressed after that.

10 days away...

Default Re: Who would you be OK with drafting at 1.1?

Still prefer Clowney first and foremost. I'd also be happy with a trade down if it netted multiple first round picks. If they're going to pick a QB at 1.1 no matter what, then I'd prefer Manziel (though I can dream he falls to the 33rd pick).

Default Re: Who would you be OK with drafting at 1.1?

Ugh, didn't notice we could pick multiple until I was done. So I'll just list it:

1. Trade down is my favorite option. Rather enjoy the idea of multiple picks and don't see a QB I would really want at 1.1 but if we can't trade...

2. Clowney. Feel he is the best talent on the board so would go with him if we held the pick. Plug him in and have this defense keep us in games while the offense learns it's identity.

3. Manziel. A gamble I think but one that I think can pay off more than other QB's. He has the skills but some things he would have to develop and if O'Brien is the QB guru folks say he should be able to do wonders with Johnny's abilities...well...if Johnny continues to want to work at his craft like he has been doing.

With that said I have no issues with any of the players honestly so would support any unless they went completely left field.

I'm completely open to Bortles and Mack as well but would prefer to trade back before pulling the trigger.
