2014 NFL Draft: Teams Expecting Houston Texans To Trade Down?

That's their poker face. - Scott Halleran

There's a new report today that NFL teams now expect the Houston Texans to trade down from No. 1 in the 2014 NFL Draft. What would it take for you to part with that pick?

Corzo got a FanShot up about this, but I figure it's worth a full post. Ed Werder reports:

Pardon me; I must be mistaken. I thought the media decided the Texans were going to draft Jadeveon Clowney with the first overall pick.

No one has a clue what the Texans are going to do. While I'm sure they'd love to trade back in such a deep draft, it's going to take another team offering sufficient assets for the Texans to make that move. The question is what constitutes sufficient assets.

Can the Texans reasonably expect a return similar to what the Rams got for the second overall pick in 2012? Probably not; I'm not sure we'll see a deal like that anytime soon, and especially not when the top player in the draft is not a QB. Could Houston reasonably expect Cleveland to part with the fourth and twenty-sixth overall picks in the 2014 NFL Draft? What about the Falcons offering up the sixth overall pick in 2014 and a first rounder in 2015? Would you hang up if you were Rick Smith and an offer like that was made?

What would it take for you to part with the first overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft if you were running the Texans?
