    This...

    Mack could end up being the "J.J. Watt" of this draft. People are sleeping on this kid. He's amazing.

    This again...

    Clowney is the better "PROSPECT" but Mack is the better "PLAYER." And so is Luis Nix... IMO...

    I don't think it's close. I pick Bridgewater based on IQ, mobility, distributing the ball, intelligent, safe.

    Many use the SEC versus ... argument. Teddy has shown steady improvement from the start. Pull up the last game he played and you will see someone that gets the job done.

    To me, Manziel was a fun college qb to watch, but I don't think he'll last long in the NFL.

    I know you have JJ Watt in quotes for a reason, but I had been calling for the Texans to take Mack since early in the season this past year. When I thought we would be picking in the 10-20 range. He's the Demarcus Ware of the draft. It's exactly who he should end up being simular to. Damascus Ware with better cover skills.

    I'm hoping it's leaked info to coerce TB5 into throwing at the combine...

    But, they are the Texans, and I have zero faith in them doing the right thing.

    So I take it we are handing the Jags Bridgewater, Can't we trade out to a team outside of our division who wants him?

    We'll see what transpires.

    It appears the Texans are set on drafting a QB.

    Would be interested if Bridgewater shows off a RG3 type arm and 4.5 speed

    We'll know on Sunday.

    His measurements are tomorrow.

    TBH, I feel like the Texans know who they want at this point. The combine will be for 2-7 rounds.

    Blake Bortles coming to Htown. Hahaha. I die a little bit every time I see that.

    What makes you think the Jags are going to take Teddy... The Texans pass him up, the Rams pass him up, and you think the Jags will snatch him up...?

    He fits their offense like a glove, he also the only qb rated as a 1st round pick on their board (sources)

    If he comes in at 6'2 215, and has a cannon for an arm, the jags will have him signed before draft day

    I thought he was supposed to be 6-3... He's shrinking already and they haven't even measured him yet.

    He'll most likely be between 6'2 and 6'3
