Bill O’Brien’s draft mantra: ‘Do what Mr. McNair wants’

The Houston Texans are in dire need of a quarterback despite making the playoffs last season and could very well draft that way come April. Head coach Bill O’Brien was asked about that possibility by John McClain of The Houston Chronicle, and his response was quite the interesting one.

Talk about knowing one’s place, right?

But seriously, O’Brien’s words are not meant to take a shot at owner Bob McNair, but rather imply that they both have the same common goal: to bring a championship to Houston. McNair has already said there is “no reason” that the Texans shouldn’t be able to draft a quarterback in 2016, so it’s pretty clear what O’Brien means via his mantra.

Given how Houston finished 9-7 to win the AFC South last year and used four different players at quarterback last season, with Brian Hoyer seeing most of the time, fans should thus expect GM Rick Smith to use the 22nd overall pick on a quarterback.
