    Huge hypothetical here (very unlikely to happen).. But from what I have read and heard, Texans want Manzell but do not feel he is worth the number one pick (nor is he). They don't want to trade down to get him and risk someone trading up to snag him in front of them.

    Say Manzell drops to 14, would you support the Bears drafting Manzell and trading him to the Texans (along with other picks) to get Clowney?

    What do you think they'd have to give up in addition to Manzell to get him?

    Again, very unlikely this happens, but top rated QBs have fallen far in the draft before so it is possible.

    If they really want Manziel, they should grow some balls, take a risk and pick him with the first overall.

    With still so many holes to fill I would never trade up, especially for a player with character issues and bust potential. Our starting DL is already set, now we need just need depth.

    What we really need right now is a safety, a linebacker and Tillman's future replacement.

    If we somehow managed to trade down and get additional picks, I wouldn't mind giving up a fourth or fifth-round pick for Washington's backup QB Kirk Cousins, though.

    That way we wouldn't need to draft a QB.

    It would cost us way too much to obtain Clowney from them, so this scenario is beyond ridiculous.

    A more likely one would be if Manziel was still available @14, and the Texans traded UP (swapping some of their picks this year and next) to obtain the 14th pick from us, giving them Clowney AND Manziel, and us with some more picks this year and next.

    Okay, go down to the corner of 5th and 7th. Walk to the mailbox. Put an envelope containing 10K inside.

    Reach under the mailbox, pickup the envelope that is taped to the underside. Give that envelope to the man in the long black trench coat. He will give you a key to a locker at the train station.

    Go there, unlock the locker. You will find a bag containing two of what I got. But be warned. If the money is not in the mailbox, there is a device that will blow up 10 square feet, to cause as little damage as possible, but still getting the job done of eliminating you.

    You will be watched by someone in contact with the man in the trench coat. All it takes is one word, and as soon as the locker is open, boom.

    I'm the janitor at the train station. You forgot to lock the locker. We mailed it to the return address.
