    They are rebuilding

    He was rumored to be available at the trade deadline for a 2nd.

    I think I read this on PFT but cant remember. It could've been on PFR.

    That would be okay as long as they drafted a good corner (Love/Boyd/Murphy) in the 2nd also like you said

    Don't know but I would give up a 1st/2nd and a 2020 2nd. I like Peterson that much.

    Definitely worth a 2nd this year...I’d be willing to part with a 3rd in 2020 as well.

    Dave Brugler at The Athletic has us drafting:

    23. Houston Texans: Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida
    The Texans absolutely must invest higher resources into the offensive line, possibly starting with this first-round pick. Taylor needs to get stronger and improve his hand placement, but he has outstanding contact balance and enough foot quickness (at 335 pounds) to be a human shield in pass protection, which must be music to Deshaun Watson’s ears.

    The full mock is $$ but this is the Texans pick. Thoughts?

    Not my favorite pick, especially for the 1st round. The scouting reports I’ve seen project him more in the 3-4 rounds. I’ve also seen him projected to be moved to the inside.

    Yeah, if I'm stuck at the 23rd pick......RT, Dalton Risner / Kansas State is my pick. Many have him listed as the top RT in the draft. I think this guy is a Day 1 starter type who will make the OL better. I wouldn't mind seeing Mancz get a real shot as starting RG if Risner were to become the new RT. Rankin has to be given a shot as well at one of the OG positions.

    If O'Brian wants a reliable running game he must get himself a road grader or two preferably at Guard. We all saw what they can do in the last game of the season.
    Not a glamorous pick, but invaluable if you want to consistently move the sticks.

    I see David Edwards as top RT on most of the sites I visit

    Little will be off of our Board well before 23 rolls around. Risher & Scharping both probably project inside.
    Now Cajuste is an interesting tackle prospect for the NFL and looks like he has the potential to left side but he's got duraility issues.

    Did you get a chance to check out Dillard?

    I think you will like what you see

    I'd love to have him on the Texans back end …. but damn a 1 and 2 or two 2s' …. that's a hell of a lot to give up even for an AllPro talent.

    I cant recall a recent trade where the team actually got a real premium return for a traded player …. aside from Mack and I'm not sure the Raiders really got a fair return since those #1's will be very late picks (at least this years).


    I don't think the Card's have much leverage tho …. its pretty much common knowledge he wants out , I don't think the price is near that steep.

    In all honesty and of course before the Combine, where things could change, I'd like to see the Texans pick up 3 OL. At the moment and based on current Mocks, I could see the Texans getting the following OL in this order:

    RD1 Risner OT/OC/OG
    RD2 Dillard RT/LT
    RD3 Hyatt LT

    Two of the three guys have enough versatility to really help the Texans anywhere on the OL and one who's played LT his entire college career. Between 3 guys like this and the kept OL personnel from last season, the Texans and even Devlin should be able to field a better unit in 2019.

    especially since the Raiders gave up a 2 to get the 2 1's. So essentially one of the one's they got is just moving up a few spots

    Jonah Williams could be this year's Brandon Scherff. The most highly regarded OT in his class, who bumps inside once he's a pro.

    Ford is another OL whose ultimate position is polarizing.

    I really like Dillard as a pass blocker. But, I've never seen him move forward as a blocker. Need to see that before making him a high pick.

    It's a good draft for interior linemen. But, Erik McCoy of A&M would make my top 10.

    It wouldn't hurt my feelings if you posted the CBs & RBs when Brugler releases them.

    I want Donovan Smith or Trent Brown in free agency and then either David Edwards, Cody Ford, Jawaan Taylor, or Greg Little (in that order) to start at RT. I am hoping for either Trayvon Mullen or Kendall Sheffield in the second.
