Houston Texans are currently deciding who they should take at number one overall in the NFL Draft.

The AFC South team have the luxury of the top pick in Thursday's draft, and their former coach believes they should take the option of selecting former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.

Ex-Aggies QB Manziel is the most polarizing of players that is available in this year's draft, with commentators and fans split on how successful they think he will be.

Some believe he could take the team that selected him to the Super Bowl, but others feels he will suffer a similar fate that former fellow Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow suffered in the NFL.

But former Texans defensive coach Wade Phillips certainly believes in the dual-threat signal-caller.

"I would take Johnny Manziel first overall. He should be the number one pick," Phillips told USA Today Sports.

Phillips insists that Manziel is a player that can do things that no other can, and he feels that if the Texans believe in him they should put faith in his abilities.

"The guy makes plays nobody else makes. And Doug Flutie was that way, too. Quarterbacks are difference makers," he added. 

"If you find one you believe in, you've got to go with him. I saw Manziel put 45 points on Alabama. And they've got pro-type players on defense and good schemes."
