This might mean these are the two finalists for the No. 1 overall selection in the 2014 NFL Draft, as the Houston Texans are going to meet with both Johnny Manziel and Blake Bortles before the draft.
The reports comes from both KRIV-TV and the Houston Chronicle.
ESPN.com wrote in an article:
"“The Houston Texans are scheduled to host former UCF quarterback Blake Bortles for a pre-draft visit on April 15 and 16 and former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel a week later on April 21 and 22, a source confirmed.” Jan 1, 2014; Glendale, AZ, USA; Central Florida Knights quarterback Blake Bortles runs into the end zone for a fourth quarter touchdown against the Baylor Bears during the Fiesta Bowl at University of Phoenix Stadium.

I believe this is really big news for the Texans and the 2014 NFL Draft, as it might mean they have their list down to these two talented QBs.
Or it could mean they just want to have a chat with two of the top QBs in the draft.
Who would you select and why?
Still, we can’t leave South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney or even Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater out of the conversation just yet, either.
Both Manziel and Bortles bring a lot to the table for the Texans, but in different ways.
You know I’d rather select Bortles with the No. 1 overall selection, if I was in charge of the team with the No. 1 selection and looking for a QB.
But on the other side of the discussion, I could be making a huge mistake by not drafting Manziel, and let the next potential star of the NFL leave the state of Texas, and possibly let a division rival have him for the next 10 seasons.
My favorite thing about Bortles is his potential and his NFL build. What I like about Manziel is the excitement he could bring to any offense. The Texans do need some excitement.
This is a very tough decision for Bill O’Brien and company.
Maybe these meetings will bring the Texans closer to a decision, or maybe it will make the decision that much tougher.
