Poll: Grading the Texans 2022 Draft

We should really wait a few years, but let’s live dangerously...

NFL: NFL Draft Gary Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Not gonna lie, it was kinda cool to see Debbie the Texan announce a draft pick in Las Vegas last week.

Despite the fact that having fans and other randoms announce picks for other teams was a bit annoying. But, Debbie’s cool.

Now that the smoke has cleared and the pre-draft hype is gone, the post-draft-entirely-to=premature-grading has begun.

Let’s join in shall we!

Based on the majority of premature post-draft grades, it looks like the universe of football talking heads gave the Texans a B+ ish on last week’s efforts.

For a team that hadn’t done, literally ANYTHING deserving a passing grade since last year’s draft, this is a good thing. At least it’s a step in the right direction, and possibly proof that Jack Easterby doesn’t have the level of influence we all fear. Maybe...

Oh, and Lonnie Johnson Jr got traded to the Kansas City Chiefs post-draft, so there’s another step in the right direction. That is, if you view strengthening your own roster and weakening that of an AFC powerhouse a good thing, which you should.

Here’s the list of 2022 draftees, in case you somehow missed it... not sure how you could have... but these are confusing times...
