New, comments

Assuming they do in fact use the first overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft, who should the Houston Texans take? Texans fans weigh in via a poll and with their thoughts.

A little over a month ago, back when the Houston Texans were merely the front-runners for the first pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, I asked you who the Texans should draft. Now that the Texans are officially the holders of The Conch, I ask you again: Who should the Houston Texans draft with the first pick of the 2014 NFL Draft?

As some players have declared themselves eligible for the draft and others have announced they're staying in school, the options this time around are somewhat different from the last iteration of the poll. What has not changed, however, is the rule by which to frame your analysis:

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.
