With the Packers defeating the Redskins in this afternoon’s NFC Wildcard showdown, the Texans have now officially secured the 22nd overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft later this year. Here is the official draft order for every team that has been eliminated from Super Bowl contention so far.
Texans fans are obviously frothing at the mouth for a new quarterback after the pitiful display that was put on by Brian Hoyer yesterday against the Chiefs, but the 22nd pick may end up putting them well out of range to select some of the "safer" passers in this class like Cal’s Jared Goff or Michigan State’s Connor Cook. When you consider that several teams ahead of Houston could also be in the market for a quarterback in the first round – namely Cleveland, Dallas, San Francisco, and St Louis – the pickings for signal-callers have the potential to be very, very slim in the back half of the selection order.
There are still three and a half months to go until the 2016 NFL Draft. What quarterback would you take in the first round for Houston, if anyone at all?
