Bortles didn’t make the kind of headlines Manziel did in college, but he was quietly one of the best quarterbacks in college football last season. He led Central Florida to 12-1 finish in 2013, including a 52-42 upset of heavily-favored Baylor in the Fiesta Bowl.
Teddy Bridgewater has also been projected to be a first-round pick, but no word if the Texans are considering the former Louisville dual-threat quarterback.
