It's just about time for teams to decide whether they'll be picking up the fifth-year options on 2013 first-round picks (if they haven't already). Whose options are getting exercised, and whose aren't?
The defending AFC South champs have invested significantly in the offense, luring Osweiler and running back Lamar Miller to Houston. Pairing a speedy playmaker like Baylor's Corey Coleman with established star receiver DeAndre Hopkins could be the final step towards turning the Texans into legitimate conference contenders.
The Cowboys face an interesting dilemma at No. 4 overall: go with the immediate impact defender in an attempt at one last Super Bowl run or build for the future with a young quarterback to groom behind Tony Romo. The choice Jerry Jones makes at No. 4 could shape the entire first round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
No one questions that Noah Spence has first-round talent, but given his questionable track record off the field, he could slide on draft day. A strong coach like Bruce Arians might possess the leadership skills necessary to help the gifted player reach his full potential.
The showdown at the combine between the top-rated quarterbacks should make for a fascinating evaluation for NFL scouts. With their background coaching at the collegiate level, San Francisco's Chip Kelly and Houston's Bill O'Brien have an advantage and may use it to find their team's next quarterback.
