Wade Phillips says Johnny Manziel should be the first overall selection

Wade Phillips was recently fired by the Houston Texans after taking over as the interim head coach late in the season. Well today he was asked what he thought the Texans should do with the first overall pick, and he said they should take Johnny Football.

“When I did the interview with the McNairs, I told them they ought to take Johnny Football,” Phillips said. “That’s what I told them, and I’m sitting here now.”

The Texans hold the No. 1 overall pick and have a need at quarterback. The former Texas A&M quarterback is considered among several possibilities.

“Those kinds of guys who can make first downs when you’re not supposed to, I think they give you something,” Phillips said. “I just think he makes plays that nobody else can make.”
