Could you go into a bit more detail about the Texans? 3rd round pick for Mario seems a given. A bit confused how you rate Allen as worthy of a 6th, but Dreesen – whose contact was similar and Brisiel – whose contract was much bigger, warrant no additional picks? I know they signed Bradie James and Donnie Jones, but each of them got one year deals at less than a million. Shouldn’t the Texans be looking at a 4th or 5th for Brisiel and a 6th or 7th for Dreesen?

Signed players cancel out lost players, so Bradie James does knock out Dreesen, and Jones knocks out Brisiel, because there are no lower-salaried players to knock out.
In the past, players making 890k have counted. Last year, the only player in that price range was Reggie Kelly, signed by Atlanta, and he counted.
However, the league is not reliable with counting players under $1 million, so it is possible that Brisiel and/or Dreesen will get you picks, should be a 5 or 6 for Brisiel and a 6 for Dreesen, Dreesen would be knocked out first
Vet minimums have not counted in the compensatory equation. And I don't know for whom the Bengals received a compensatory pick for. But, it wasn't for Reggie Kelly, who signed with the Falcons as a street free agent on 8-16, months after the free agency period. The Texans will get picks (likely 6th round) for Brisiel and Dreessen.
