Bill O'Brien: 'We will pick a quarterback in the Draft'

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien admits that his side will pick a quarterback in the 2014 NFL Draft but doesn't know when they will take the player.

Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien has revealed that his side will be selecting a quarterback in the upcoming 2014 Draft but is unsure in what round they will chose to pick the player.

The Texans hold the first overall pick in the Draft and have been touted to select UCF Knights' Blake Bortles or Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel with the selection.

"I don't think there's any question that we'll draft a quarterback in the Draft," O'Brien told NFL Network. "Where we draft that quarterback, I don't think we know yet. We don't even know that yet.

"We're still in the process of studying all these prospects, in the process of putting a grade on them and place them where they would be in the Draft.

"The big thing is it's such a long process. We're in the stage now where we go to the Pro Days and eventually we bring them into our facility for an interview, we call it an on-campus interview in Houston. As we get closer and closer we'll obviously be able to make a decision."

The Texans traded long-time starter Matt Schaub to the Oakland Raiders last week.
