"I would caution anyone subscribing to this thinking though. As Dennison pointed out, Tate was drafted in the second round of the draft. This represents a large investment, especially for the Texans, who had previously never drafted a running back prior to the third round.
Not only did they set the aforementioned benchmark for the franchise, but they traded up for Tate, meaning that they saw very good value after trading down from their original second-round slot."
I know it's not the best source but what they have to say is insightful. The Texans may have taken BPA but remember, they traded up
for Tate. Another first for the Texans who are conservative when it comes to the draft.
