2015 NFL Mock Draft: Trades Galore In The First Round!

Mocking The Draft has their latest projection of the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft out, and they've gotten creative with possible trades in this edition. Are the Houston Texans involved in any of these fake trades?

To answer the question that teases this article, no. Dan Kadar of Mocking The Draft does not have your Houston Texans pulling off any trades in the first round of his latest mock draft. As he did last week, Kadar has the Texans drafting Shaq Thompson at No. 16, reasoning:

Although Thompson has said he wants to be a strongside linebacker on the outside, he would fit inside in a 3-4. In coverage he's like a safety, but he has the strength to make plays getting up the field.

Two questions I'd love for you to answer in the Comments below...

1. Do you have any reservations about Shaq Thompson in the Texans' defense, including but not limited to the issue of whether his best position at the next level is at linebacker or safety?

2. Is there a player available in the 2015 NFL Draft that you feel so strongly about that you'd support the Texans giving up assets to move up? For the purpose of this question, assume we're talking about the Texans parting with multiple picks from the first two rounds of the 2015 and 2016 NFL Drafts.
