2014 NFL Draft: What Are The Odds The Houston Texans Draft A QB First Overall?

New, comments

Who will the Texans draft with the first pick of the 2014 NFL Draft? That's a separate debate. But what are the odds that said first overall pick will be a QB? Cast your vote and explain yourself.

Instead of asking you who the Houston Texans will select with the first overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft, I'm going to do something a bit different this time around.

Although there may be a vocal minority who disagree, the quarterback cupboard for the Texans is currently bare. If not bare, it's got the equivalent of a jar of expired olives, a small tin of paprika, and a broken spork in it. The Texans need a quarterback. Badly.

My question to you, as expressed in the poll below, is as follows: What are the odds the Texans use that first pick in the 2014 NFL Draft on a QB?

Obviously, if you are certain that the Texans are going to draft Jadeveon Clowney, or trade back, or select some other player (Khalil Mack? Jake Matthews?) who's not a QB with that first overall pick, or draft a QB in a later round instead of with that top pick, your answer would be 0%.

On the other hand, if you think it's a stone cold lock that Roger Goodell will announce that Teddy Bridgewater, Blake Bortles, Johnny Manziel, or some other signal-caller is the newest Houston Texan via the first overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft on the evening of May 8th, you'd answer 100%. If you're not at either extreme, check in with your choice of another percentile, conveniently presented for your perusal in ten percent increments.

Again, I'm not asking who the Texans will pick. I'm asking what the chances are that their pick is a QB. Vote and discuss in the Comments, won't you?
