New Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien spoke to the media today at the NFL Combine.

With the Texans holding the number one draft pick the rookie coach fielded several questions about Johnny Manziel, a potential candidate to go first.

And while much of the media world goes crazy over the news that Johnny Football doesn't quite measure 6 ft, O'Brien didn't seem concerned:

"It's less about height, and more about how he is built," he told gathered reporters.

With Manziel coming in at 207 pounds in the Combine medical, the Texans coach may well be concerned with his long term potential in the NFL.

For what it is worth Manziel told the media that he feels like he is 10-foot tall when he plays - not that that is likely to sway the Texans as they decide who to choose come May's NFL Draft in New York city.
