2016 NFL Draft Results: Houston Texans Select Braxton Miller 85th Overall

This offense is going to be RIDICULOUS.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Bill O'Brien and Rick Smith have been aggressive so far in the 2016 NFL Draft by trading up not once, but twice for Notre Dame offensive players. First it was the blazing fast Z-receiver, Will Fuller, and then it was longtime Irish center Nick Martin. The Houston front office isn't done yet with their offensive makeover, however, as they just took one of the most dangerous offensive weapons in the draft, Braxton Miller (WR--Ohio State), with the 85th overall pick.

Miller is expected to immediately compete for the "starting" slot receiver spot with Cecil Shorts III and Jaelen Strong, but with his unique background there is a chance he could see some snaps at running back and wildcat quarterback as well. At this point I have no idea how Bill O'Brien is supposed to get all of these weapons on the field at the same time.  I honestly don't even care anymore. This team needed to score more points to make any strides in 2016, and now they have the means to do so.

Good show, Texans. You've really outdone yourselves this year.
