Thoughts on NFL draft 1st round?
After weeks of scouting and debating, the Houston Texans decided on the obvious choice at No. 1: Jadeveon Clowney, the South Carolina defensive end considered by most to be the top talent in the 2014 NFL draft. A few minutes later, the Jacksonville Jaguars made a splash at No. 3 by selecting quarterback Blake Bortles ahead of superstar Johnny Manziel. It all came as part of a dramatic first round, which ended with Teddy Bridgewater going 32nd to the Minnesota Vikings. What are your thoughts on the evening?
Jadeveon Clowney's NFL future?
Mel Kiper has been saying Jadeveon Clowney had a future as a No. 1 overall pick since Clowney's sophomore season that he stamped with his helmet-popping hit against Michigan in the 2013 Outback Bowl. So if it feels like we've been talking about his draft prospects for a long time, it is because we have. Naturally, during that time, draft experts and teams have had plenty of opportunity to pick apart his game. Is it all just blowing smoke or should we be concerned about his future as a pro?

Johnny Manziel's NFL future?
Whether it is due to playing the premier QB position or some of his off-the-field stories, Johnny Manziel has to be one of the most discussed prospects in the 2014 NFL draft. Depending on what you read, he could be the second QB taken in the top 10, the third-rated QB in the draft or barely in the top 20 list of prospects. Of course, we may need a few years before we can judge his pro career, but we want to know now: How good will "Johnny Football" be in the NFL?

Matt Schaub to the Raiders?
Matt Schaub would prefer to forget his disastrous 2013 season with the Houston Texans. And it appears he will be able to do so, as reports indicate he will soon be traded to a team that would also like to forget last season: the Oakland Raiders. Will Schaub have a Rich Gannon-like revival in California? Will the Raiders still draft a quarterback with their No. 5 pick? Are you rooting for a resurrection of Raider Nation? Cast your votes!
