Did the Texans consider making a move to get Manziel when he was still available in the first round?
"No, sorry," O’Brien said. "We spent a lot of time with Johnny and I had great meetings with him. He is a bright guy and I really enjoyed watching him play in college on film and enjoyed talking with him."
Manziel was projected to be a top 10 pick by many heading into the draft, but the Texas A&M Heisman Trophy winner wasn’t selected until late in the first round with the 22nd overall pick by the Cleveland Browns.
