    I hope he falls flat on his face. Not that it matters; he'll still have his families money.

    Good for him, I'd hope he has confidence in himself, it would be a lot more noteworthy if he came out and said "Nah I don't think I'm good enough to go number 1 overall, I hope they pass on me."

    There's a fine line between confidence and arrogance.

    The kids from Texas and wants to stay in TX. It’s a bold statement, but I understand why he did it.

    If I were the Texans, I'd trade down a few spots and still pick up one of the available QBs out of Bridgewater, Bortles, Carr or Manziel.

    Might be their best decision. The kid has an ego that could be a cancer for a team. Considering the crap he pulled in college, imagine what he does in the NFL.

    Cancer... and I have serious doubts he is a QB for that long in the NFL.

    I agree with him. Whether or not he pans out as a player we shall see, but he will put people in the stands just like Tebow would've done for the Jags. Marketing alone makes him worth it to Houston, same as Tebow's value would've done for Jacksonville.

    IF Texans do take him, I say Robert Mathis sacks him a minimum of 2 times in their first game against the Colts! ;)

    He may never do anything in the NFL but the kid is full of confidence. The belief in himself alone won't make him special but a special player without that belief is destined for failure.

    He's not that easy to sack. I wish he'd stayed in college. I love to watch him play. I don't have time for the NFL.

    Marketing alone makes him worth using the #1 pick? The Jags wouldn't have had to give up anything to get Tebow. The #1 overall pick in the draft is just a little bit more valuable than nothing.

    Sure it would, because that is ridiculous and wouldn't be said by anyone, ever. It's not like he has to pick between one of the two options. There are other things he could say to express his confidence in himself that don't make him come off like a jackass. Like "It would be the right choice for Houston to take me with the #1 pick. I think I could help the team do great things." That's the difference between confidence and arrogance. One statement makes you want to agree with him. The other one makes you hope he steps in dog poo.

    Almost a third of the first overall picks in the draft since 1970 never amounted to anything in the NFL. So, no matter whom you take, it's a gamble. I don't think a gamble on someone that will sell merchandise and make the owners a pile of money, even if they don't amount to much in the long run overall, is too risky, since it's as much or more about making money as it is winning.

    Not sure how he’s a cancer? From what I hear, he was a great motivator, team player and his teammates loved him.

    Question: Who will win more NFL playoff games, Tebow or Manziel?
    If Jaguars draft him, people voting Manziel get a free buffet.

    He can't play from an NFL pocket and can't survive outside of it. He'd be a wasted pick.
