This time of year, the mock drafts are almost as plentiful as one-year contracts given out by Nick Caserio. Maybe more so.
The newest one, by Steph Stradley, takes your Houston Texans through the full draft, from their third round (and first) pick to the final name called at Pick #233. Here are your newest (mock) Houston Texans:
Steph really thinks Houston needs to go all in at safety. There’s an explanation for this.
Hi there. Enjoying this weather. You?— Stephanie Stradley (@StephStradley) April 21, 2021
I did 7 rd mock draft as GM for the #Texans. This year, I was extremely distracted as is evidenced by my run on safeties. This is not one of my best efforts. Uh competition. pic.twitter.com/oQ7YMwKMWd
In the neverending typhoon of bad news regarding the Texans since Jack Easterby came along, even those of us who have to talk about them fall prey to the toxic overload of 2021 Texans fandom. Personally, I’d have leaned a bit heavier into the defensive line or front seven than safety. But with Houston’s roster looking like a who’s who of who that, it’s really hard to misfire with a draft pick.
What do you think of Steph’s draft? If nothing else, she did better than Bill O’Brien.
