The facts still remain the same no matter how many speculations are out there.
I'd like to have a staff of closers like what the Patriots have.
They certainly were able to close a lot of deals on draft day.
& this is the point. You're using supposition as "fact" & saying the Texans aren't doing their due diligence to make the most of the draft.
Even though it was presented that the Texans wanted a 4th

later, the rams offered a 6th to move from #30 (after they had traded down from #22) to #27 which the Texans (obviously) rejected. rick wanted a 4th rder to do that trade
This would suggest if the Patriots offered
a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, & 7th they would have took it. Since they didn't trade away the 27th pick the most obvious conclusion was that it wasn't offered.
Yet you believe since the Vikings made that trade with New England, that offer was presented to the Texans & that's just not the case. 1+2 does not equal 5.
Now, if your criticism is that the Texans should have taken the Ram's offer, or that they should have been able to coax a 4th into the Ram's offer, then that's a different story.
Right now, the point is there is no evidence that the Vikings offered to trade up to 27.
