INT. MUSIC CITY RADIO HALL – NIGHT

Commissioner Roger Goodell steps to the podium.

The draft countdown clock with a Houston Texans logo hits the :59 second mark. Commissioner Goodell inches close to the podium microphone.

COMMISSIONER GOODELL

With the first pick in the 2014 NFL Draft… the Houston Texans select… David Carr, Quarterback, Fresno State.

DEREK CARR angrily stares down his agent. A befuddled DAVID CARR walks out from the audience. NWO theme music blares. The crowd chants ‘Holy Shit.’

David reaches out his hand to his brother, but Derek storms off.

Commissioner Goodell has no idea what’s going on.

Texans GM Rick Smith, owner Bob McNair and head coach Bill O’Brien await DAVID Carr’s arrival to the main stage. The trio hold up a Texans D. Carr “1” jersey.

CUT TO:

ESPN interview with David CARR and the Texans organization.

ESPN REPORTER

The first question for you guys, and what everybody at home is probably wondering, WTF?

GM RICK SMITH

We figured we’d get that type of reaction.

(he laughs to himself)

But throughout the whole draft process we maintained that we’d do what was best for this organization…

(beat)

What was best for the team…

(beat)

And, most importantly, what was best for the fans. And right from the get go we fell in love with David.

(beat)

All over again, I guess you could say. He didn’t have a bad Pro Day and his senior year’s 10.0 adjusted passing yards per attempt was third-best in the nation.

Texans Owner Bob McNair interjects himself into the interview.

OWNER BOB MCNAIR

It’s a new era. No longer are we tied to having to pay a rookie QB who’s never played a down of professional football $60 million.

(beat)

Instead, we only have to pay them about $25 million, and we can spend the rest on building an offensive line that didn’t allow 76 sacks during David’s first rookie year.

ESPN REPORTER

Coach O’Brien, how do you feel about the pick?

COACH BILL O’BRIEN

(gritting his teeth)

You’d be hard-pressed to find a more pro-ready QB than David. And we feel his years of experience in the NFL will be an asset to this organization; both in the long run and the short term.

ESPN REPORTER

But couldn’t you have just signed him for the veteran minimum?

GM RICK SMITH

We didn’t want to take the risk another team would sign him during the draft.

As the interview continues, Commissioner Goodell can be seen walking to the podium to make the next pick.

COMMISSIONER GOODELL

We have a trade to announce. The St. Louis Rams trade the number two overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft to the Houston Texans for Houston’s 2014 second round pick, their first round pick in 2015, and their first round pick in 2016.

(beat)

The Houston Texans are now on clock.
