The 2014 NFL draft is only days away but there is still so much confusion at the top of the draft board.
But according to Houston Texans (the team with the 1st pick) reporter Lance Zierlein, things could've been so much easier if one man had declared for the draft.
"I have no doubt that Marcus Mariota would have been a Houston Texans if he had come out this year. Size, arm, foot quickness & fewer warts," Zierlein tweeted out earlier today.
Instead, the Oregon Ducks quarterback chose to remain in Portland for the 2014 season, leaving teams and fans to wonder exactly what if for a whole extra season.
However, the mobile quarterback is currently expected to be the number one pick in 2015, and if not will almost certainly be the first play-caller off the board barring any injuries or a Blake Bortles like rise from an other college QB.
Mariota played his best season in college football for the Ducks in 2013. He had 245 completions for 63% to go along with 3665 yards and 31 touchdowns, with only 4 interceptions all season.
He is also a huge threat on the ground as well, racking up 715 rushing yards off just 95 attempts for 9 touchdowns in a fast-paced Oregon offense.
It will be interesting to see where he ends up going when the young man from Hawaii does eventually get his name read out by Roger Goodell.
