Texans have No. 1 pick in 2014 NFL Draft after Week 17 loss

By Ryan Wilson | CBSSports.com

Houston, you're on the clock. (USATSI)
Mercifully, the Texans' season is over. After a 2-0 start, they lost 14 straight, Gary Kubiak lost his job in the process, and now the team is on the clock with the first-overall pick in 2014 NFL Draft.

It's been a precipitous falloff in Houston, which had won the AFC South in back-to-back seasons with 10 and 12 wins. Now the organization will spend the next few weeks and months finding a head coach and deciding which player to take with the No. 1 selection.

In case you're wondering, NFLDraftScout.com's Rob Rang and Dane Brugler both have the Texans drafting Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, assuming Bridgewater leaves college (which he almost certainly will if he knows he has a good shot and going first overall).

Of course, when you're 2-14, there are issues up and down the roster. So if Houston decides to pass on quarterback with the first choice, there's defensive end Javedeon Clowney, left tackle Jake Matthews and outside linebacker Anthony Barr.

In the meantime, if you're looking for a good laugh, here's what we wrote back in July in the Texans' preview:

A year after making the playoffs for the first time in team history, it has become habit-forming for the Texans. We've gone from wondering if coach Gary Kubiak is on the hot seat to celebrating back-to-back 10- and 12-win seasons, division titles, and postseason appearances. Next up: Getting to the Super Bowl.

Just missed that one.
