Houston Texans Roundup (5/8): Draft Day is here!


Today is finally Thursday, May 8, the day of the 2014 NFL Draft. The day we find out who the Houston Texans are selecting.


This evening the Texans will let their decision be known the the entire football world. Will they draft South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, someone else or just trade away the No. 1 overall selection?

Tonight we will find out.

The countdown is over.

I still believe the Texans keep the No. 1 overall pick and select Clowney. I could be wrong. I could be correct. All I do know if tonight the draft starts and that is what I care about the most … that it finally starts.

The NFL Draft starts at 8 p.m ET

In fact, here is the final Toro Times 7-round mock draft for the Texans.
