It's affordable. If that's the position that's going to make the biggest impact, then go for it.
Maybe. If you have a franchise QB. Right now the Texans have Ryan Fitzpatrick and Case Keenum. Spending the 1st pick in the draft on an OT seems like the cart before the horse.

RT will not make the biggest impact. Not even Manning or Brady have 2 1st round picks at OT. And they are worth that investment. First things first. Get a QB worth protecting.
