On the one hand, you have to balance between paying a veteran and the possibility of a young talent.
It seems to me that you pick and choose.
If the Texans hit on all the picks, none of us would complain, since young talents are always cheaper than the vets.
Basically my point is the Texans are in this position because they put themselves in this position because of poor salary cap management. When you begin each league year without enough money to meet your minimum financial obligations for 3 years in a row that is poor salary cap management.
It causes a deterioration in talent, prevents teams from adding quality talent and forces them to make decisions that they don't necessarily want to make
and that is exactly where the Texans are today.....no excuses from me, follow the money, it tells actual and true story.
