2014 NFL Draft: Who Should The Houston Texans Take With The First Pick Of The Draft?

Two possibilities. One picture. - Stacy Revere

With the draft a week and a half away, Battle Red Blog asks fans which player the Texans should select with the first overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Who is the favorite and why?

It's been a couple of weeks since we last had a post devoted to this question, so let's check the pulse of the community again. Who should your Houston Texans draft with the first pick in the 2014 NFL Draft?

Recall this caveat:

We're assuming the Texans keep the first overall pick. In other words, they don't trade back. I know, I know...trading back is what all the cool kids do, and the Rams totally did it in 2012. Don't care. It takes two teams to trade, and this entire exercise is so speculative that we're not going to increase the uncertainty at this point. When you're casting your vote, do it with the understanding that the Texans are staying at No. 1.

Even with the talk about teams expecting the Texans to trade back (indeed, there's additional smoke to that effect swirling today), let's assume for the purpose of this exercise that the Texans keep that top pick. Kindly cast your ballot and explain yourself in the Comments below.
