In respond to TK; it doesn't matter whether the Vikings were concerned about what the Texans may do, the fact remains they traded up to draft Patterson.
Does it matter to them if the trading partner is named Texans or Patriots?
The possibility of a trade is there; whether the Texans wanted to or not is a different matter.
