For example I prob would not trade our #26 to NE for a second this drft and a first next as I want impact players now.
A trade I have mentioned is #26 to Cleveland for second and third this year.
Texans have traded down in the first round twice.
In 2005 they swapped spots with the Saints and picked everyone's favorite DT: Travis Johnson! Talk about a stinker of a first round selelction.
In 2008 the Texans traded down with the Ravens and took Duane Brown. I'd say that one worked pretty well.
I don't think they have ever traded up in the first. Could this be the year? Maybe not. They are in a salary crunch and I am not sure they want to add the $ guarantee contract a higher first rounder would cost. I think they stay put.
