IF we can trade back just a few spots and still pick up someone to play RT (Matthews).
How can you say, with conviction, what he clearly sees and doesn't see? It's literally him saying "If I was in charge I'd trade down", with no why given. There could be a host of reasons why he would trade down, and they might be purely selfish (Doesn't want to learn to work with a new QB, thinks Watt is amazing enough the Texans don't need Clowney, etc etc).
The way this article is written and with the quote given, I cannot see any reasonable guess as to why Andre would trade down, and people claiming to see that are just projecting what they feel the Texans should do onto his quote.
