Making the best of the worst-case scenario since 2002.

With the first pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears trade the first overall pick to the Indianapolis Colts and select Bryce Young QB, Alabama.

The Houston Texans are on the clock, there are a lot of options on the table, and the future of the franchise is at stake. With five of the first 101 picks, the team has flexibility but also feels the weight of the world. But at this moment, it’s not up to Nick Caserio or Mel Kiper, it’s up to you, the reader to decide the fate.

We have included a fifth option where the team does go all-in on Bryce and trade their first two picks to acquire the QB, which is an unfortunate reality we must all consider.


If Bryce Young is off the board, which of these scenarios would you prefer the most?
