I feel ahead of him at this point but that could change when he actually does a little more research
Kiper is a needs drafter for the most part. he only goes a team should draft BPA when they a ton of weaknesses or no obvious weaknesses. Some of his best and worst moments are when he reacts to teams not drafting someone he believes is a need.

On the Price pick, it is more probably that Price is not there at 19/20 than anything. Highly productive quick penatrating DT. For what seems to be the style that Texans currently want in the DL, he is a good fit. While we fans have clamored for a really big fat guy, the current administration wants guys that move even if they have some size. Dan williams seems to have that mobilty with decent size, but may run a bit hot and cold. I would be shocked if a Terrance Cody type winds up a Texans as long as Frank Bush is DC.
