    45.3%

    6.7%
  3. No. We should have traded up for Dillard.

    29.3%

    Probably drafted him since he played LT and RT. You know we love versatility.

    I hear he had the most wins (1 on 1) out of all tackles this past season, and that he’s a damn good run blocker as well. Hoping for the best!

    Used to be a QB, useful to have around un case he gets Watson killed.

    Offensive Tackle from Alabama State.
    6'5" 322 lbs.
    Has good speed and quickness for his size. Very athletic. Can play either Left or Right Tackle.
    Good in run and pass blocking.
    Needs improvement in technique and could use time in the weight room to build better strength.
    Looks to be a good pick in the first round for our Texans to fill a very important need to protect Watson.

    Actually I believe that was solely at the Senior Bowl plus he played at Alabama State so not really talking about top notch competition. So yeah just got to hope for the best. Haven't seen anyone grade him as a first rounder though it is said he has a high ceiling.

    A need pick. He was plan B, which wouldn't be a concern if not for the fact that this staff has zero history of successful O-line development.

    The Eagles really did a screw job on us.

    So what‘s the plan? Sitting him most of the season to learn, plugging him in at RT for a season or throwing him in at LT if we find out Kahlil is as bad as people assume he is?

    Tytus Howard assured #Texans coaches they did not make a mistake.

    Tytus Howard on being a former quarterback: 'I know how being sacked feels. I try not to let anybody hit the quarterback.'

    — Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) April 26, 2019


    Tytus Howard said the #Texans feel he can play right tackle, left tackle or guard. He’s practiced at guard before.

    Don’t sleep on Tytus Howard, man. He was definitely an undervalued prospect and he has Duane Brown potential. Let’s just give him a chance. pic.twitter.com/lIyOly107i

    — Ryan Reynolds (@RPRTalks) April 26, 2019


    The Texans needed a left tackle and Howard was one of three true left tackles available in the first 50 picks. I have to tell you, what he does and how he plays reminds me of Duane Brown when he came out of Virginia Tech. Needs work, but talentedhttps://t.co/NskHGz03RN

    — Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) April 26, 2019


    If Taylor is a healthy player, he should be the pick here, but I just found out that he has a flagged knee with some teams. Other teams don’t think it’s bad. Montez Sweat could be a surprise pick as BPA. 36" arms, 4.41 forty, 39" vertical, 22.5 sacks over 2 years in SEC w/30 TFLs https://t.co/TUCu8sZbYV

    — Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) April 26, 2019


    There is no prayer the Texans see Cody Ford as a tackle. I see him as a guard. He’s 6’3. Brian Gaine has physical standards for the position and it’s unlikely Ford met them as a tackle.

    — Lance Zierlein (@LanceZierlein) April 26, 2019


    Nothing is better than people on twitter telling me about an Alabama State tackle and how bad he is and what a terrible pick is. I don’t know why I wasted time on his five games of tape as well as the time I spent on him at Senior Bowl. I should have just asked JefF from twitter.

    Been a while gentleman... good to post some Texans thoughts again.

    BOb and Houston have been one of the highest run oriented offenses since he took over the mantle. Dillard was coming from a Leach Air Raid offense and was known as a mediocre to worse run blocker.

    Howard, on the other hand, was known as one of the nastier run blocking tackles with the measurements to become a premier LT.

    As noted PFF gave him the most 1 on 1 wins of any tackle in the draft. I know many don’t value PFF, but they are respected throughout the NFL.

    For those who wanted Ford, he is more of a guard and we don’t need more guards posing as tackles.

    Here is a nice thorough breakdown of Howard.

    Not really, Texans probably didn’t want Dillard that bad. If they did, they would have gave up a 5th rounder for him. Reminds me of the Teddy Bridgewater situation when they just had to give up a late rounder but didn’t budge.

    Good pick....yes

    Good first round pick....that maybe a stretch.

    This guy would have been there second or possibly even third round. It has all the signs of getting spooked by the Eagles leap frogging them.

    I'm happy to see some optimism, but it still feels like OB & Gaine panicked and reached for Tytus. I really hope I'm wrong. And I really hope Devlin exceeds our expectations.

    This reminds me of the Duane Brown pick. Everybody was pissed for taking a supposedly 3rd round pick in the 1st round. But it turned out ok.

    Go look at the response to the Brown pick.

    Hey Mr Know it all Lz. …. We don't hate the player , we hate the idea of taking a project when there were other options and this project would most likely have been there in the 3rd / 4th round.

    Yeah , maybe this project turns into a solid player , that doesn't change the fact that the Texans didn't get "Value" at the pick. They reached and reached FAR. Could have taken the #1 WR or #1 CB off the board and gotten this guy at pick 54 / 55 or later.
