When Marshall Faulk talks about the NFL people tend to listen, it comes with being one of the all-time greats at your position.

The Pro Football Hall of Famer was discussing the draft in an interview with the people over at Fansided today and here is what he had to say.

The 41-year old NFL Network analyst  was asked about the number one pick, and what the Houston Texans are thinking about doing with that piece of prime real estate.

"Rick Smith and the Texans have a Jadeveon Clowney and they have a Johnny Manziel in mind, and they’re weighing their options at this point," Faulk said. "They need someone to decide they really want that first pick. Who would benefit from moving up? I think the Falcons would for Clowney. They need someone to help sack the QB, especially playing in a division with Cam Newton and Drew Brees."

That's not too revolutionary from the former running back, but what he certainly said next, citing the Cowboys, Manziel, Romo and a trade, was.

"Also, I think The Dallas Cowboys are definitely a team that would benefit from a Johnny Manziel. They could give the Texans Romo, a first round pick–whatever they’re asking for. They’re just not a team that’s ready to win the Super Bowl right now."

Wow. Just imagine if that actually does happen later on today.
