Texans could be going for Garoppolo


On Thursday, the Texans weren’t able to find a trade partner for the right to select Jadeveon Clowney, so the Texans took him.

On Friday, if the Texans once again can’t get a deal done, they are likely to pick a quarterback. The current buzz in league circles centers on Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

If it happens, both Texans NFL teams will have former Eastern Illinois quarterbacks at the top of their respective depth charts. Garropolo, who came to the draft at the NFL’s invitation, would compete with Ryan Fitzpatrick for the starting job in Houston.
