The NFL schedule was released last week. Most Texans fans didn’t care. Their hearts are full of malaise. Their souls are empty. Houston went from talented and let down by a terrible head coach, to despairing, depressing, and old.
As a result, most will tune out of in 2021. Some will watch because it’s just something they do. Their eyes are already on next season. The race for the first overall selection in the 2022 NFL Draft is on. Despite what the Texans say about Davis Mills and ignoring the Deshaun Watson situation entirely, taking another quarterback is likely. With the talent dilemma they’re facing, however, anything and everything is on the table.
1st Overall Draft Pick in the 2022 NFL Draft
Spencer Rattler QB Oklahoma: 5/4
Kayvon Thibodeaux DE Oregon: 11/4
Sam Howell QB North Carolina: 7/2
Malik Willis QB Liberty: 9/1
Tyler Shough QB Texas Tech: 10/1
JT Daniels QB Georgia: 12/1
Derek Stingley Jr. CB LSU: 16/1
Kedon Slovis QB USC: 16/1
Desmond Ridder QB Cincinatti: 20/1
Sevyn Banks CB Ohio State: 25/1
A Texans quarterback named Rattler is sick, regardless of where he went to college. It’s never too late to blow out your bowels for Howell. Or atone for Slovis. Or give up on the season for Kayvon. With the 2021 season becoming a reality, most Texans fans already have their eyes on 2022.
