1:58 PM: Manziel No. 2 on Cowboys' board

Texans looking to trade top pick, gather more
"Texans want to swap first round picks Thursday and acquire first and second round picks this year and first round pick in 2015." - John McClain, Houston Chronicle

QB Johnny Manziel not “wild” about landing in Jacksonville; family not rooting for Houston
"From what I've been told, Manziel's family is not rooting for Houston to be his NFL home, believing that staying in Texas will make his already challenging transition to professional football that much more challenging."

"I've also heard that Manziel himself isn't wild about the idea of landing in Jacksonville, one of the NFL's smaller markets, and that the Jaguars would not be his first choice of employers. It's not a preference based on people, only location." - Don Banks,

Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey not content at 19
"Sources around the NFL are saying, insisting actually, that Hickey wants to trade out of the Dolphins' No. 19 overall selection in the first round. That makes sense because the players the Dolphins covet either are not going to be available more than midway through the round or aren't a value pick that early.

"So Hickey spent much of the past few days on the phone discussing trade-up as well as trade-down scenarios. He was "setting the table," as one source said." - Armando Salguero, Miami Herald

Broncos, 49ers open to moving up
"We've mentioned #49ers are more than open to moving up on Thursday night. Let's add another: #Broncos. They're talking about moving up, too" - Ian Rapoport,

Browns GM “enamored” with Bridgewater
"Browns general manager Ray Farmer is enamored with Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and will strongly consider him at No. 26, league sources have told

"The sources said Farmer has been infatuated with Bridgewater since last fall, and would most likely grab him at No. 26. In fact, the Browns have looked into trading up from No. 26 to land Bridgewater if they need to." - Mary Kay Cabot, Plain Dealer
