SB Nation’s Dan Kadar has his new mock draft out, and he has your Houston Texans doing something that I imagine would be applauded by most of the fan base. No, it doesn’t involve drafting a quarterback. Kadar writes:
25. Houston Texans: Ryan Ramczyk, OT, Wisconsin
The Houston pick gets interesting if one of the quarterbacks happens to drop in the first round. If they’re all gone, and the better coverage linebackers and safeties are off the board, they could turn to a solution at right tackle. Over the next couple of weeks, a player like Ramczyk could rise, which will put Houston in an even more difficult position.
With so much uncertainty about Derek Newton’s future, this pick makes all kinds of sense, unless you believe Ramczyk won’t be able to make the jump from the Big Ten to the NFL.
