2017 NFL Draft Review: Brett Kollmann Talks Texans And More

Would you trade three high draft picks for a younger Alex Smith?

NFL: Houston Texans-Deshaun Watson Press Conference Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

After months of speculation, film breakdowns, and mock drafts, I now finally have something real to talk about as it relates to the 2017 NFL Draft. Your Houston Texans rolled the biggest dice in franchise history by giving up a bounty of picks to secure the services of Deshaun Watson, but Lady Luck still managed to bless Rick Smith and Bill O’Brien on Day Two by allowing Zach Cunningham and D’Onta Foreman to fall right into their laps. Houston was even able to get some potential value on Day Three with the selection of high upside depth picks like Julie’n Davenport and Carlos Watkins.

I broke down all of those moves and more in my post-draft “podcast.” You can of course listen to the whole thing if you want my thoughts on the entire 2017 NFL Draft, but for just ten minutes of pure Texans talk, fast forward to the 10:07 mark in the video. Enjoy!
