It’s another day, another mock draft. This is the boulder we push up the hill. Waking up to life. Working. Reading another mock draft. The boulder tumbles down. We walk back down. We push it back up. And read another mock draft.
This one is from Mel Kiper. He really goes all out and goes three (!!!!!!!!!) rounds deep. Crazy. I love the jib of this guy. He has an incredible widow’s peak. Anyways, here’s what Mel had to say about your Houston Texans.
Round 1 (23): Andre Dillard, OT, Washington State
Round 2 (54): Damien Harris, RB, Alabama
Round 2 (55): Darnell Savage Jr., S, Maryland
Round 3 (86): Antoine Wesley, WR, Texas Tech
With three picks in the top 55, Houston has to address its offensive line, one of the NFL’s worst last season. The Texans should think about using two of those three picks on linemen. For now, let’s stick with Dillard, who started at left tackle for the Cougars but could play on the right side. I have called him the best true pass-blocker in this class. On Day 2, Houston could add competition for Lamar Miller with Harris, a reliable and runner and pass-catcher, although he’s not as explosive as his former teammate Josh Jacobs. Savage had seven interceptions over the past two seasons and could compete with Tashaun Gipson for the other safety spot next to Justin Reid. Wesley is a 6-foot-4 giant with good ball skills and a 37-inch vertical.
