Yeah, I did this totally disregarding plausibility so....lol....it was mainly to illustrate a couple of things:
1- Moving out of the first would help save the cap, this year but also moving forward. Mario and Foster are the big topics this year but that doesn't mean next year won't have a couple big decisions too!
2- At the end of the 1st you're not getting one of the year's elite prospects and since WR happens to be our big need AND it's a class chock full of good looking WR prospects....move back and grab a few of them.
3- Everyone loves a good trade back and the only other time the Texans went with an offensive player 1st was Duane Brown, who they dropped down to get.
Really like the first 4 picks though, I might take Joe Adams in the second WR spot as that's one player the Texans have talked to
Haven't done proper reading on him yet but I actually started my trade back scenario going 2a- Sanu / 2b- D. Jones, grabbing 2 of the big WR prospects first but with a guy like Zeitler hanging around and the WR class going so deep it would be a bit of a wasted pick. Definitely could see them grabbing 2 and maybe even 3 WRs this go-round.
