Normally, I might find the opening night of the 2020 NFL Draft experience a bit dulled for Texans fans because of the lack of a first round pick. Given the monstrous void in our collective sports experience for the last month plus, however, I find myself genuinely excited to bask in anything resembling a live athletic event, even if the first stanza of said event is unlikely to include my favorite team and could prominently feature technical difficulties.
While the promise of the Texans getting multiple picks tomorrow night makes the first round less pressing for us, you know full well it’s possible that Bill O’Brien shocks us anew and further mortgages Houston’s future to get back into the first round tonight. Thus, we shall watch and speculate wildly about the T-E-A-M.
As the draft gets underway, BRB will be here for you to react and chat as the evening progresses. If the Texans do in fact do something tonight, we’ll get a separate post up. If they keep their powder dry, we’ll simply add additional threads to discuss the festivities in general each time the operational thread gets unwieldy.
REMINDER: Do not post any tweets or posts that tip picks before they’re announced on the live television broadcast. Doing so will be a bannable offense.
Welcome to the 2020 NFL Draft, Texans fans. The Comments are open for business.
