If you missed it we posted our second NFL Mock Draft with the Houston Texans selecting Teddy Bridgewater, but to be honest I can’t seem to completely make up my mind as to who I believe the Texans will take in the draft.

Over at House of Houston, they posted an article about how Johnny Manziel equals Vince Young.

The article says:

"“That’s right Aggies, your beloved JFF has officially become Vince Young. The only difference is we don’t know how this story is going to play out. The similarities between 2006 and 2014 are kind of alarming.”"

This is a fun read about the two QBs and how 2006 and 2014 have a bit of similarities.

At ESPN.com there is an article talking about the Texans defensive coaches and the changes that have been made with the staff.

The article states about Romeo Crennel, the new defensive coordinator of the Texans:

"“Romeo Crennel hadn’t met O’Brien until his interview earlier this month, but liked what he learned. Despite still being paid by the Kansas City Chiefs for another year, Crennel agreed to a three-year deal to be the Texans’ defensive coordinator.”"

I really like the moves the Texans have made with their defensive coaching staff and it should show on the field this season.

In an article on the Baltimore Sun website they wrote about former Texans head coach Gary Kubiak, who is the new offensive coordinator of the Baltimore Ravens.

"“When Coyer heard the news Monday that the Ravens had hired Kubiak as their offensive coordinator and his long-time lieutenant Rick Dennison as their quarterback coach, he immediately thought of Joe Flacco and Ray Rice and imagined the possibilities.”"

I think Kubiak will help improve the Ravens’ offense, plus get Ray Rice back on track to where he was in 2012.
