2017 NFL Mock Draft: Because Some Men Just Want To Watch The World Burn

No need to let a little thing like the 2016 NFL season play out before putting a mock draft for 2017 out.

Coming to Houston soon.

The 2016 NFL Draft belongs to the ages now. Your Houston Texans have their draft class, which they have supplemented with a number of UDFA signings. While another move or three is certainly possible before training camp begins, the vast majority of the player movement as it concerns your Houston Texans is done.

Which means, of course, that WE SHOULD IMMEDIATELY LOOK TO 2017.

Dan Kadar's first mock draft for an event that is almost a whole year away is live, and here's what he predicts the Texans will do:

15. Houston Texans: Lowell Lotulelei, DT, Utah

Houston didn’t address the defensive line until their last pick of the draft. With Vince Wilfork potentially entering the last year of his career, Lotulelei can be his replacement.

Well, go ahead and start printing those Lotulelei jerseys, gang. It's a mere formality, just like it was this time last year when everyone knew the Texans would select Christian Hackenberg eighth overall in the 2016 NFL Draft.
