Over at The Athletic, Dane Brugler has released a seven-round mockery of the 2019 NFL Draft. As preface, Brugler writes:

This mock draft isn’t based on my grades or what I think “should” happen. This is a “what I’m hearing” mock draft, connecting teams and players based on buzz around the league.

So who does he have your Houston Texans acquiring in a few weeks? This class:

23. Houston Texans – Cody Ford, OT/G, Oklahoma

The Texans haven’t done enough this offseason to address their needs on the offensive line, almost backing themselves into a corner with this pick. But in this scenario, it works out with Ford available, giving them an immediate upgrade at either tackle or guard.

54. Houston Texans – Elgton Jenkins, OG, Mississippi State

55. Houston Texans – Isaiah Johnson, CB, Houston

A former wide receiver, Johnson’s footwork and route recognition are still in the development phase as a cornerback. However, his size (6-2), length (33 inches) and speed (4.40) are outstanding and teams are willing to bet on those skills as early as the second round.

86. Houston Texans – Devin Singletary, RB, Florida Atlantic

161. Houston Texans – Malik Carney, EDGE, North Carolina

195. Houston Texans – Byron Cowart, DL, Maryland

220. Houston Texans – Brett Rypien, QB, Boise State

How does that hypothetical 2019 draft class grab you?
