Two weeks after projecting a wide receiver heading to Reliant Park via the 27th overall pick of the 2013 NFL Draft, our friends at Mocking The Draft now foresee your Houston Texans going in a different direction with their first-round pick. Witness their latest fake draft in its entirety here; the Texans' pick awaits your perusal directly below.

The Texans need to add a playmaker at inside linebacker in the event that Brian Cushing gets injured again. Brown is the most athletically gifted linebacker in the draft and can make plays all around the field. Many consider him undersized, but he's not much smaller than current Texans Tim Dobbins or Darryl Sharpton.

I know a sizable contingent of BRBers would be cheering on April 25th if the draft unfolded this way. Similarly, I know there is a vocal group of Texans fans who would rather the Texans tab someone else with their first-rounder. Where do you stand?
