The Best Team Fits for Top NFL Draft Prospects
Nam Y. Huh/Associated Press

No draft prospect would turn down a chance to be selected No. 1 overall by the Houston Texans, but that doesn't mean that is the place everyone should go. Heck, No. 2 to the St. Louis Rams or No. 3 to the Jacksonville Jaguars are nice spots least in draft terms.

We outline the ideal spots for some of the NFL draft's top talents in this slideshow, matching up prospects with teams, supporting casts, coaching staffs and the markets they play in.

This draft appears to be heavy on early-Round 1 candidates at quarterback, like Teddy Bridewater, Johnny Manziel and Blake Bortles. We also take a look at the top pass rusher, Jadeveon Clowney, wide receiver Sammy Watkins, offensive tackle Jake Matthews and running back Carlos Hyde. There doesn't seem to be a top-10 candidate right now at defensive tackle, linebacker, safety or cornerback, but we hit on some of those positions in the best of the rest in the final slide.

Spoiler alert: Manziel can make plays anywhere for anyone against any team, but there is only one place a renegade wild card like him belongs...Oakland.
