Default Re: Texans draft grade

i'm giving it an A based on position, round, and need.

we took BPA in the first round with a player who we by all rights could've realistically traded up to get, at a premier position (pass rusher), and is a direct plug into wade's starting defense.

we traded out of the late second round for early 3rd and 4th, a huge win.

3rd was wide receiver and offensive line, the big needs this offseason.

4th we landed a 1-2 graded defensive end, as well as continuing to fulfill the needs on offense with another receiver and offensive lineman.

5th we jumped the run on special teamers and got our kicker

6th we again addressed the trenches and need with an athletic project on offensive line.

UDFA we got our 3rd string quarterback


without using a single name, we hit a grand slam by position in my opinion. one being a potential reach, but offset by getting one that fell ... all (except for kicker obviously) with the ability to learn behind someone while competing for a starting job. we got stronger and deeper in all the right areas, it's hard to ask for more.
