Then when he was there, probably a no brainer. They might have held out for a rich trade & the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th wasn't enough for them to drop out of the first... which is totally understandable.
Then when you consider they probably thought the Vikings were targeting their guy... no way.
With the way the draft was unfolding, I wouldn't think that they were more concerned with Hopkins going off the board than when the draft started. There were no signs that a run on WRs was imminent. As far as the Texans FO getting what they wanted, this draft seems to have fallen just about perfectly for them in the first round.
Now, the best thing for us is to have a run on QBs, RBs, WRs and maybe even CBs here in the 2nd round. There aren't alot of OLBs, ILBs, or RTs that I like with this 2nd rounder. Let's hope our guy at one of those positions, or at NT, is available.
