Each week Fansided’s Josh Sanchez will release a version of his 2014 NFL mock draft.

For the second straight week, Sanchez has the Houston Texans drafting Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater with the No. 1 overall pick, as they have an NFL-worst record of 2-12 overall with two games remaining in the 2013 season.

Houston hosts the No. 1 team in the AFC, the Denver Broncos this Sunday at Reliant Stadium at 1 p.m. EDT on CBS.

Two weeks ago, Sanchez tabbed the Texans to select South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney with the first pick, but has seemed to go away with that type of thinking.

Sanchez said about Bridgewater in this week’s mock draft:

"“The Texans will not be going anywhere unless they are able to land their quarterback of the future.”"

The editor of Fansided also wrote:

"“In order to turn things around, Houston needs to jump on the opportunity to take the No. 1 quarterback in the 2014 draft class, which is Teddy Bridgewater — though Derek Carr is gaining ground, which would make for an interesting dynamic with Texans fans.”"

The more I see Case Keenum play the more I believe the Texans really need to select a quarterback with this pick. Now the question is, “Which One?”

Right now I’m sold on Bridgewater, but we still have a few months to look over all the top prospects at the quarterback position.

I’m really ready to see Bridgewater one more time this collegiate season in his bowl game, so that will be a very good way of seeing Bridgewater possibly play under the most pressure thus far in his college football life.

It will be a good experience for him, but as Sanchez wrote as well … watch out for Derek Carr. I know his brother was a bust for the Texans, but maybe he’s the Peyton Manning of the Carr Brothers. I’m not going to base my thoughts on Derek Carr on how things played out with his brother.

Give us you thoughts at the Toro Times on who you want to see the Texans draft with the potential No. 1 overall selection.
