The other needs they have like WR and ILB have depth and value into the 3rd and 4th rounds respectively.
The only issue I'd have is not getting one of the top NT's .... but they might be able to fill that void in FA - Dont see Cody returning as the cost and injury issues just dont add up.
Ideally you would trade out of the first round to an early #2 and pick up two of NT , WR , S.
If Texans cannot retain Quin I could live with a Matt Elam but that would be based off need. Is that really an option Texans can afford?
Clearly hitting target @ WR is a priority.
Improved OL pass pro & run blocking.
Disruptive penetrator @ nose tackle.
Playmaking ILB next to Cushing.
RDE to bookend Watt & rotate with Smith to retirement.
OLB to replace Barwin (would rather see money invested elsewhere).
Those are your principle building blocks to Texans future success, IMO!
