Houston Texans with ridiculous asking price for the number one draft pick

Published Add your comment

The Houston Texans own the all important number one pick of the 2014 NFL draft and many teams may be interested to take it off their hands, but the Texans asking price: three first round picks minimum. 

According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, there are two inquiring clubs who are interested in trading for the top overall pick in the draft, with potential franchise-altering prospects such as Jadeveon Clowney and Johnny Manziel available, the asking price is monumental.

South Carolina defensive end Clowney is the man stand out prize for franchises looking to move up in the draft and Texans General Manager Rick Smith is seeking premium value to cash in on the availability of the pass rusher.

Rapoport believes that the Texans are not fully interested in Clowney, saying on Total Access on Wednesday: "He doesn't appear to be a fit for their defense"

Although many experts believe that the Texans wont shift the pick, there still seems to be wriggle room to pull off one of the biggest blockbuster trades in NFL history, we'll have to wait and see.
