Speculation on whether Blake Bortles could be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft grew when the Houston Texans announced that they hired former UCF quarterbacks coach George Godsey.

Godsey played quarterback under George O’Leary when he was the head coach at Georgia Tech and was the quarterbacks coach(05-08) for O’Leary at UCF.


Godsey is now coaching alongside Bill O’Brien, also a former O’Leary assistant. Bill O’Brien hired Godsey from the New England Patriots where he was an assistant coach.

Multiple reports have said that O’Brien is not sold on Johnny Manziel’s work ethic, another No. 1 pick prospect. With all of the Houston Texan’s ties to the UCF Knights, it could pave the way for UCF’s Blake Bortles to be the first Knight ever drafted No. 1 overall.
