The Houston Texans are definitely in the market for a starting quarterback, and according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, he believes the team will definitely draft a quarterback with the first pick. Well today after Blake Bortles pro day McClain talked with both head coach Bill O’Brien and GM Rick Smith.
“I was very impressed,” O’Brien said. “He made every throw I wanted to see, and he showed good footwork.”
O’Brien and Smith met with Bortles on Tuesday night.
“I like what he did,” Smith said. “I was very impressed with him.”
Former NFL quarterback Ron Jaworski of ESPN graded Bortles’ pro day on a scale of 1-10.
“I give him a 10,” Jaworski said. “I think he smelled a little blood in the water considering (Louisville quarterback Teddy) Bridgewater had a subpar day.
“He was well prepared and did everything right.”
It sounds to me like the Texans could be falling in love with their future quarterback.
