Despite the fact that the Texans may not have a first or second round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, there’s still plenty of scouting to be done on this year’s incoming batch of NFL prospects. One of the premiere showcases for these talents is the Senior Bowl down in Mobile, Alabama which takes the best’s seniors from around the country and put’s them into two all-star teams for a week of competition. What makes it unique is that NFL head coaching staffs run the two sides in the week leading up to and during the game.

This year, Bill O’Brien and the Texans’ coaching staff (presumably with replacements for the several coaches who were ushered out yesterday) will be in charge of the South squad.

Although the Texans might not get a chance to select the premium talent that’ll be on display, they will get hands-on experience with plenty of good players; hopefully that helps them navigate their way to sound decisions in the later stages of this year’s draft.

What do you make of this news? Think it’ll give the Texans an advantage come April, or is this a waste of time considering the Texans’ lack of draft capital?
