NFL Draft One Week Away

The NFL Draft is approaching on May, 8th, and for many teams it could determine their future for a long time to come.

The Houston Texans have the first pick over-all in the draft -- and they think they have a pretty good idea who they're going to select next Thursday.  General Manager Rick Smith spoke toFox News Southwest about the upcoming draft.

“I absolutely know who I want,” Smith said in an interview with “Texans Huddle.” “I know the guys we like. The fortunate thing about having the first pick is I’ve got the pick of the litter, so I will know exactly who I want at that point.”

“Now where the game is played is if there’s an opportunity to move and, in this case, obviously to move back if somebody else wants to come up to that first pick,” Smith said. “Then you weigh what the opportunities are versus who the individual is that you want to take and what that value is relative to the value that somebody might be offering you. But as you move through the draft, obviously you don’t know who’s going to be picked when.”

Johnny Manziel and Jadeveon Clowney are the two most hyped prospects going into a draft that is full of talent.  Both prospects are being compared to once in a generation type of players.  Clowney may be able to give a team an immediate impact from the start of the season compared to Manziel according to some analysts.

Sports Illustrated listed the top 100 draft prospects for the upcoming 2014 selection.  The first overall pick they would select is Teddy Bridgewater from Louisville.

"Bridgewater's a mobile, intelligent, competitive player with outstanding field vision and the ability to make most NFL throws. Does he have a laser rocket arm? No, but he can throw on the run, and throw off-balance, and throw across his body accurately," according to SI.com.

Defensive End Jadeveon Clowney, OL Greg Robinson, LB Khalil Mack, and OL Jake Matthews round out the top five prospects for the magazine.

NFL Draft coverage begins May, 8th at 8 p.m. EST on the NFL Network, ESPN, and Fox Sports.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
