2014 NFL Draft: Grade The Houston Texans' Draft Class

The draft is over so you know what that means... DRAFT GRADES. Come voice your opinion in our poll and let us know why you feel the way you do about the Texans' 2014 draft class.

Bob Levey

The way the NFL draft coverage works is fairly simple: bowl season implants the names of top prospects into our brains, the Senior Bowl gives those who have something to prove a chance to prove it, mock drafts get jammed down our throats, the Combine allows us to watch them run around in panties, then more mock drafts, pro days, more mock drafts, never ending speculation and connections, final mock drafts, the actual draft, and then, finally and yet totally prematurely, draft grades.

Now that the draft has come and gone like a three day blizzard, we are left to evaluate who the Texans took and then to hand out the almighty draft grades. The Texans came out with the following haul in 2014:
