First overall pick down to Texans or Rams

St Louis Rams v Houston Texans Getty Images

Two teams remain in play for the first overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft: The Houston Texans and St. Louis Rams.

The Texans are in the lead for the top pick, thanks to their worst-in-the-league record of 2-13. If Houston loses to Tennessee on Sunday, then the first overall pick goes to Houston.

But St. Louis, which owns Washington’s first-round pick thanks to the 2012 Robert Griffin III trade, also remains in contention. If Washington loses on Sunday and Houston wins, then Washington would likely move ahead of Houston in the draft order (thanks to the strength of schedule tiebreaker), and the pick that Washington would send to St. Louis would be No. 1 overall.

No other teams have a shot at the first pick, but there’s still a wild race for picks 3-8: The 4-11 Browns, Raiders, Jaguars and Buccaneers, plus the 4-10-1 Vikings and 4-10 Falcons (who play tonight), are all in contention for the third pick in the draft but could all fall as far as No. 8 in the draft order.

Next in the draft order are the 6-9 Bills, Titans and Giants, followed by the 7-8 Lions, Jets, Steelers and Rams. Yes, the Rams will have two picks in the first half of the first round. And maybe the first pick overall.

    Robert Griffin is better than any player coming out of college this year and for the next 10 years. I’d do the trade a million more times. #HTTR

    Wish we had that pick now! Dang….A first round #1 talent would be a BIG help to this group of underachievers.

  3. riggo08 says: Dec 23, 2013 8:01 AM

    Washington = Worst franchise in the NFL. I feel bad for their loyal fans.

  4. jersey73 says: Dec 23, 2013 8:07 AM

    Rooting for a Redskins loss and Texans win next week. If so, the Rams HAVE to take Bridgewater with the #1 pick. Bradford can’t stay healthy and even when healthy is merely decent. In the modern NFL, you need a really good QB. Plus, isn’t Bradford due something like $25 million if he is still on the roster next year???

  5. stevequinn says: Dec 23, 2013 8:07 AM

    I’m sure the Rams would find someplace to play Clowney. He would make a really good defense even better. Robert Quinn is already the best DE in the NFL and adding Clowney to that defense would make them scary.

  6. nyninerfan says: Dec 23, 2013 8:11 AM

    I believe the word that Washington fans are looking for is fleeced.

  7. tebowslostvirginity says: Dec 23, 2013 8:15 AM

    Well good thing the Redskins can get a 1st rnd pick for Cousins

  8. chuckiesez says: Dec 23, 2013 8:17 AM

    With the fifth pick in the 2005 NFL draft, the Washington Redskins select- some Rogers kid (Carlos) It could have been the one spelled with a ‘d’ in the name, (Aaron) but somebody couldn’t spell that good. This is where it all went wrong……

  9. gibbyfan says: Dec 23, 2013 8:18 AM

    As a araider fan you would think thre would be some excitement here butIhave come to learn it doesn’t matter what pick they get in round 1 because they most assuredly will F%3ck it up………should just go ahead and trade down. They don’t do well in high pressure situations

  10. texanfan62 says: Dec 23, 2013 8:20 AM

    I’d rather see the Rams get the #1 pick. The Texans, with Heckel and Jekel (McNair and Rick Smith) deciding who to take, would screw it up. Don’t have ANY Confidence that those two would do a good draft.

  11. 1rockyracoon says: Dec 23, 2013 8:24 AM

    Good job Snyder. The Rams could take the 1st or 2nd overall pick and trade down a few spots and pick up even more draft picks. If Griffin doesn’t bounce back this could go down as one of the worse trades in NFL history. I’m a Phillies fan and back in the 80′s they traded 5 players for Von Hayes. He had some productive years, but he was never able to rise above the fact he was traded for 5 players. Looks like Griffin will be be better known for what Washington gave up to draft him rather than his play on the field.

  14. 80sbroncofan says: Dec 23, 2013 8:33 AM

    Doesn’t matter if the Rams have the 2nd pick or the 1st pick. They are going to trade down and get more picks. They seem to be all in on Sam Bradford so don’t look for them to take a quarterback in the first round. I see Atlanta trading with St. Louis so they can draft Clowney. They need a pass rusher in the worst way.

  15. bigbluenationdb says: Dec 23, 2013 8:43 AM

    The Skins have built the Rams into a team full of young talent. If Bridewater is off the board the Rams are going to move down and accumulate even more picks. They don’t need Clowney. Their front four is already one of the best in football. I could see Atlanta wanting to move up and take Clowney. The Falcons have proven they are not afraid to make a draft day move.

    The Rams send the #2 pick to Atlanta for probably a future #1 and a 3rd round pick this year.

    As a Giants fan I am glad to see the defense playing well but I wish we had just tanked the season and been in position for a top 5 pick.

  16. fryeways says: Dec 23, 2013 8:44 AM

    I remember reading about how Bradford was the surest thing since Peyton Manning and was going to be an immensely shrewd field general with an arm and accuracy to make him an elite talent.

    Where the heck is that guy? I want to root for Bradford – were we all wrong about him?

  17. blackqbwhiterb says: Dec 23, 2013 8:47 AM

    If I’m not mistaken, Chuckiesez, didn’t Washington trade up one pick after GB took Aaron Rodgers, to get Jason Campbell? Furthermore, they traded up with Mike Shanahan ‘s Denver Broncos!! Oh the tangled web…..

  18. sfniners4life says: Dec 23, 2013 8:47 AM

    Rams keep cashing in on that traded. They already landed some good players and now get there choice of franchise qb. Rg3 will be washed up and out the league soon. Rams are the worst team in NFC west and still better then any team in NFC least.

  19. sfniners4life says: Dec 23, 2013 8:49 AM

    Maybe skins try to get back with trading rg3 but then fisher laughes and says he don’t want that clown.

  20. seabronco says: Dec 23, 2013 8:52 AM

  21. dublindemonszfl says: Dec 23, 2013 8:54 AM

    Fisher is a happy guy, team is improving and he’s getting the picks to make it a contender.

  22. trspat says: Dec 23, 2013 9:03 AM

    Rams have a great shot here. One guy above says RG better than anyone this year, and he’d do it again? Dude, maybe RG was better, but he sure isn’t right now! May never be again either. As for Rams, I’ve been saying this for years… Bradford is a bust! The kid they are playing now gives them a better shot at winning, and he’s a 2nd or even a 3rd most anywhere else. I would pass on Bridgewater and snag one of the Bears Qbs or grab the A&M kid later. Use that top pick on a monster.

    LoL, are you insane? Rick Smith is responsible for the best draft picks in Texans history! Remember Texans fans being pissed off on draft day a couple years ago when they chose JJ Watt? Boy did THAT pick turn out terrible!

  24. 6ball says: Dec 23, 2013 9:19 AM

    .

    Too many teams at the top of the draft looking for too few QB’s. With the rookie scale in place I would expect some pre-draft movement in positioning no matter what the original order is.

  25. phillyphannnn83 says: Dec 23, 2013 9:22 AM

    Bridgewater is not going to be a franchise QB in the NFL. He’s completely overrated. Manziel is the next Tim Tebow. Pass on both. You heard it here first folks…the best QB in this draft is Blake Bortles.

  26. 12strikes says: Dec 23, 2013 9:39 AM

    And the funniest part of this whole thing is that
    1. Leslie Frazier IS going to get fired
    2. Mike Shanahan MOST LIKELY will get fired.
    3. Shanahan will then be hired by the Vikings.

    Mark my words.

  27. jimnaizeeum says: Dec 23, 2013 9:39 AM

    Wouldn’t it be funny if Washington tried to get the pick, with yet again multiple future 1st rd picks?

  28. nflsecurity862 says: Dec 23, 2013 9:39 AM

    If the Rams win a championship or two because of this trade, I can see this trade overtaking the Herschel Walker trade as worst trade in NFL history.

    At least Walker was a proven NFL player.

  29. htowntexan says: Dec 23, 2013 9:47 AM

    Rick Smth has no idea what he doing. He is a joke, along with our bumbling idiot owner.

    Watt was wade Phillips pick, yeah the guy we are running out of town. Think of Hopkins, Mercilus, Oakley etc. Not good.

  30. phan216 says: Dec 23, 2013 9:50 AM

    If the Rams end up with the 1st pick I would bet the Browns would try to make a move up from 3-8 for Bridgewater. They have the ammo. Im not sure I would like that but I see them trying..

  31. bigbluenationdb says: Dec 23, 2013 10:00 AM

    This draft class of QBs is weak. I wouldn’t waste a first round pick on any of these guys.

  32. matt4477 says: Dec 23, 2013 10:15 AM

    I am tired of people saying the Redskins gave up SO much for RG3. They gave up some picks people. They are chances. No guarantees. Most picks don’t amount to anything. RG3 will be healthy next year and all of the haters will be eating their words.

    Signed The Shanahans

    What ridiculous comments. 1st round picks are gold in the nfl. Nobody else is throwing them around like Washington.

    Rams so far have traded back and still picked up Michael Brockers, Janoris Jenkins and Alec Ogletree. Brockers is already a very good DT, Olgetreee leads team in tackles runs sideline to sideline. Jenkins is still a work in progress but has been a starter from day 1.

    They used excess picks to trade up and get Tavon Austin who even with incompetent coaching/qb has demonstrated his explosive capabilities. They also traded up and got Zac Stacy closing in on 1000 yards.

    And that’s not counting whatever comes from the 2014 pick.

    Its real simple to be a critic and judge after the fact. Nobody was saying oh this is a horrible move last year when they made the playoffs and I dont think too many people were thinking the redskins would be this bad.

  38. packerbackernj says: Dec 23, 2013 10:51 AM

    First pick doesn’t mean all that much. You can’t quantify the ability to play football and work in the team. There are no experts. There’s just arbitrary numbers and game tape. There are no “safe” picks. How do you think Bill n co have had longevity? They trade down and collect quantity. Since Elway was drafted in 1983, there have been 16 QBs drafted with the number 1 pick. 3 have super bowl wins.

  39. ninefingers9 says: Dec 23, 2013 11:07 AM

    Nice try Skins, but your attempt to usurp the Vikings as the most dysfunctional franchise in the league isn’t working! Now knock it off!

  40. realdealsteel says: Dec 23, 2013 11:07 AM

    Feel bad for Redskins fans because RG3 will never be a big time winning QB. No running QB ever is.

    Since he’s bought that team in 1999, that organization has found new and more inventive ways to embarrass itself. Just like the Cowboys who’s owner is exactly the same as the redskins.

    So sad.

  41. brownsalwaysrebuilding says: Dec 23, 2013 11:09 AM

    Cleveland will package their 2 first-round picks together to move up and grab their (hopefully) franchise QB if they fall to 7-8 in the draft.

    Personally, I hope my Brownies lose so we can grab a great QB at #3 and then get another weapon with the pick from the Colts from the Richardson trade (teehee).

  42. williebeaman says: Dec 23, 2013 11:27 AM

    You can wish all you want, but the Rams will not be drafting a QB early in the draft this year. Bradford will get another year. If he doesn’t go down this year, they are at 9-6 or 10-5 right now and on the cusp of the playoffs. He was having his best year, not to mention Zac Stacy and the running game didn’t really become an option until after he went down. Give him another seasons with some real weapons for the first time in his career and expect a big step up. When he went down, he had 14/4 split with a 91 rating. Better than a lot of QBs. Stop acting like he’s the biggest bust. He’s in year 4 and was coming into the worst situation a QB has ever come into in the history of the NFL (maybe with the exception of David Carr).

  43. thebirdofprey2 says: Dec 23, 2013 11:45 AM

    Not saying I want to see it happen but the Rams need to draft that LT Jake Mathews. The kid is a son of Hall of Famer and probably better than the top two tackles taken last year.

    Sam Bradford can excel if given an offensive line and 1 legit #1 WR. I thought he was played really well before getting hurt. Washington fans must hate seeing t his pick going to Rams with RG3 on the bench.

  44. drsummeroff says: Dec 23, 2013 11:47 AM

    “Rooting for a Redskins loss and Texans win next week. If so, the Rams HAVE to take Bridgewater with the #1 pick.”…………………

    NO, they do NOT. Why start over AGAIN when the team is showing signs of improvement? Bradford was having a good season before the injury. If the knee heals, you keep him and shore up the O-LINE, get a true #1 receiver and fix the secondary. Draft a QB somewhere between rounds 2-4.

    Thanks again to the Skins, by the way, for giving us Rams fans a chance to even have this discussion. :)

  45. drsummeroff says: Dec 23, 2013 12:00 PM

    Where the heck is that guy? I want to root for Bradford – were we all wrong about him?”

    Go look at the wide receiver depth chart in St. Louis for the last 4 years and you’ll find your answer. You won’t find a Marvin Harrison, A Reggie Wayne or a Demaryius Thomas there but you will see a Mark Clayton, Ruvell Martin and Brandon Gibson on that list. Go put any NFL QB not named Brady back there throwing to those guys and see how it works out.

  46. corkspop says: Dec 23, 2013 12:03 PM

    Houston 1st pick = Bridgewater. Rams 1st pick = Clowney. Best 1st pick will be the team that gets Bortles.

    All wasted picks. You cabt afford to waste picks in the top half of the draft.

    1st rounders Mercilus and Jackson have also been less than overwhelming.

  49. skinsfan91 says: Dec 23, 2013 12:24 PM

    Hey, a high second is nothing to sneeze at. Especially if we lose. That’s basically a first row pick. I say we keep Cousins. Let him and RGIII battle it out in camp. If RGIII loses, that’s fine. His next contract won’t be that huge. In may take 3 or 4 years for him to get the intricacies of being a pocket QB. Dude is only 23.

  50. skinsfan91 says: Dec 23, 2013 12:28 PM

    And oh yeah, if the Rams aren’t perennial Super Bowl contenders for the next 10 years, then they’ve completely failed.

  51. stlsportsfanatic says: Dec 23, 2013 12:30 PM

    I am a die hard rams fan that has watched them week In and week out since they came to Stl. I don’t know where this Sam Bradford is a bust idea comes from but I can guarantee u barring he can’t recover from his injury he IS the franchise quarterback now and of our future. I guess some people that here rumors or only see highlighted clips shown and commented on by sports media feel that he has been “the issue”, but that is not the case. His statistics for any season have not what would be considered poor and this year he was having his best year and a top 10 of all quarterbacks from a statistical standpoint. Through the first 8 games of the year we were last in the league in rushing with zero rushing touchdowns. Since then we are 1st in the league in rushing. Hard to mount any consistent arial attack with literally no ground game. Also, our defense was not playing nearly up to its capabilities or expectations, which it has also spun a total 360 recently. We have the youngest team in the nfl and it took half of the season to get most of these young players on the same page. Clemens has done great as a back up game manager filling the role he is intended to fill, but he was solely responsible for the Seattle and Tennessee losses. Bradford will be an elite quarterback in this league soon and I will be furious if we waste our 1st round pick on a quarterback. More than likely Cleveland trades us their 2 1st round picks for ours so they can once again try to establish a franchise quarterback, giving us 3 1st round picks. I wouldn’t mind seeing us trade Houston for Andre Johnson. They will be in complete rebuild mode for years now that kubiac is gone and it looks like schuab is done. Having the 1st and 2nd overall pick in the draft seems like a best case scenario for a team in such unforeseen circumstances. But I still see the Cleveland trade being most likely scenario.

    ——————————————————————–

    Interesting to note that Bailey is 3-4th string WR, Pead is a special teamer, Watkins was already waived by the Rams. St.Louis traded the 2nd rounder they got last season from Wash. to Chicago and they drafted Alshon Jeffery with that pick. In return St.Louis got Watkins ( whose gone) and the special teamer in Pead. But that’s ok St.Louis has Austin (one great game vs Indy) but he’s still a stud right.

    Yes St.Louis looks like they may have gotten the lions share of this trade, but if they don’t turn that trade in playoff appearances etc whose gonna look worse? I mean c’mon Rams fans wasn’t all the talk that you guys were gonna challenge SF and Seattle this season, and here comes Arizona taking the leap that you guys SHOULD have made this season with a washed up Carson Palmer?

  54. kingklausman says: Dec 23, 2013 1:10 PM

    I wouldn’t mind seeing the Rams trade out of the #1 pick and get another kings ransom of picks. But I would also love to see the Rams take Matthews because our OL needs help. Another scenario could possibly be the Rams taking Clowney and plugging him in at DT he has the size and is a freak athlete to excel in that position. I could only imagine the havoc we would do with Long, Brockers, Clowney and Quinn on our front DL.

    -How do you expect to challenge for a playoff spot with a backup QB who is terrible. IF Bradford was still healthy I would have more concern unfortunately we will have to wait until next season. Stacy has given us a run game finally and the OL has been dare I said good? Something they havent been for Bradford in a long time. Carson Palmer can chuck the ball I don’t see how he is washed up his arm strength has been and still is great. The AZ defense is also dominate the NFC west all have very tough defense’s. The only thing we can do it wait another year and see if Bradford can stay healthy and lead our team if not then I would say we miss fired with our picks.

  56. texanfan62 says: Dec 23, 2013 1:35 PM

    I’d rather the Texans, if they pick #1, trade down for a first round pick, and get more picks. McNair saying their close and have all this talent is Looney Tunes. The Texans are not talented. They need more talent. They’ve let too much talent go because of their screwed up Salary Cap situation. If they stay #1 and decide QB I’d want Bartles from C.Florida rather than Bridgewater. He seems to be a more physical, traditional QB. If they go defense, Clowney or Barr.

    All this talk about the Rams having to make the playoffs or the Superbowl is rubbish. Next season when Bailey starts, the Rams would have gotten 5 starters from the trade (not counting what they can add with the 2014 draft). I think that 5 plus starters for one person is a clear win no matter how you much try to diminish the Rams gains. Prior to the trade the Rams had won 15 games over 5 years, if they beat Seattle, they would have won 15 games since the trade (more than Washington BTW). I’m not one that thing that RG3 is a bust, I think he can develop into a very good QB and I wish him luck.

    You’re being too picky. All GM’s have hit or misses.

    Harris is decent, not great. Montgomery and Carmichael were busts. Brooks is only a first-time starter and has been solid, not spectacular. Mercilus is okay and Jackson has improved greatly. Plus he pulled the deals to get Manning and Joseph and also picked up Foster when he went undrafted.

    This year will be the most interesting since Smith will be making the decisions without Kubiak, who he’s been working with since he first started.

    -How do you expect to challenge for a playoff spot with a backup QB who is terrible. IF Bradford was still healthy I would have more concern unfortunately we will have to wait until next season. Stacy has given us a run game finally and the OL has been dare I said good? Something they havent been for Bradford in a long time. Carson Palmer can chuck the ball I don’t see how he is washed up his arm strength has been and still is great. The AZ defense is also dominate the NFC west all have very tough defense’s. The only thing we can do it wait another year and see if Bradford can stay healthy and lead our team if not then I would say we miss fired with our picks.

    ————————————————————

    You QB is out, excuses, you have teams out there who’ve lost their QB and are still competing. That’s managements fault for not finding a decent backup, but I guess you give him a pass for pulling off the Bob trade, but heaven help you if in the future as your picks manifest into a good team only to have future seasons rest on your starting QB’s health because you have no depth behind him.

    I’d rather the Texans, if they pick #1, trade down for a first round pick, and get more picks. McNair saying their close and have all this talent is Looney Tunes. The Texans are not talented. They need more talent. They’ve let too much talent go because of their screwed up Salary Cap situation. If they stay #1 and decide QB I’d want Bartles from C.Florida rather than Bridgewater. He seems to be a more physical, traditional QB. If they go defense, Clowney or Barr.
    —————————————-

    If you get the #1 pick there’s no way you trade down with the amount of needs that they have. QB is #1 priority – Schaub will be gone, Yates will be gone, and Keenum showed he’s not the answer. The scouting reports on Bridgewater are comparable to Russell Wilson when he was coming out, with better arm strength.

    Haha the redskins are such a terrible mess. No fixes on the horizon either!

    The Rams are the youngest team in the NFL, anyone who expected the WR/passing game to mesh was a little ahead of themselves, WRs almost always take a few years to “get it”. Arizona is the 3rd oldest roster and Palmer isn’t “washed up” he’s not a pro bowler either. The Rams will be dreaded in 2015 without a doubt IMHO, 2014 could surprise but for anyone who thinks “same old Rams” is showing their ignorance! Toughest division by far and the youngest team in the league could finish 8-8???

    Rams throttled the Colts and Bears and gave Seattle all they could handle with a career 54% passer, this is the team RGIII built!

    I wish Mr. Griffin the best in his career!!

    It’s gonna be so funny watching all the dweebs squirm and pooping their pants next year when RG3 destroys the competition. BTW….the Rams already have two of our 1st rnd picks plus a 2nd and have yet to make the playoffs. Even the number one this year won’t make a difference for the Rams. Building a Rams dynasty? Ha !!! ….NOT….HTTR

    Rams look better. Still need to to make huge strides. Skins have nothing on the horizon? Have at least a high 2nd. Maybe more if trade Cousins (bad idea). Then we have at least 25 million in cap space.

    I’m a Rams fan as well and I’m not saying its been Bradfords fault. He did well his first year, McDaniels set him back his second year, he didn’t have much to work w fishers first year and this year he was killing it statistically. His problem is he has zero mobility and he hasn’t won even when he has played well. I’m ready to see someone else at the helm someone that shows emotion and doesn’t look like he dgaf. Id like Bradford to do well but better yet I want the Rams to win and they need to have a better plan then Clemons. They need to draft a qb, but I also think they should keep Bradford. If anything I’d think they would get him pretty damn cheap 2nd time around

    to the washington fan really??? no matter how good rg3 winds up the trade looks like this washington rg3 with 2012 2nd overall pick

    rams brockers jenkins pead ogletree bailey and stacy sounds fair to me… oh yeah and either the #1 or #2 draft pick in the 2014 draft which will probably get us another 3-4 picks at least. or if the rams give up on bradford (which i dont think happens) then a franchise qb who very well could wind up as good as rgIII

    Rams fans sure talk a lot for a team that has won absolutey nothing. At least the redskins won a division title. BTW the rams record last 2 years is a combined 14-16-1 redskins 13-18 not much difference really.

    Completely agree, never have I seen a team get so much praise for 7 and 8 win seasons, they haven’t done squat yet. I mean are their season ticket promotions themed the 2014 Rams ” 7 is heaven ” or ” 8 is enough “.

    Now St.Louis has a bigger problem, while they’re taking their sweet time developing into this elite squad, now they have to deal with SF, SEA, AND Arizona..

    You can have all these talented players all you want, you just end up looking like the Lions of the West.

    A major difference considering the divisions that each play in…
