The only I will pull out is his philosophy about player visits and drafting for need/bpa Each NFL team can invite up to 30 players to their respective facilities for pre-draft visits. The Texans are looking for the same things in those visits that they were looking for at the Combine. Youre either checking something out medically or you are just wanting to spend a little bit more time and get a little bit better feel, Smith said. If you dont think youve got a good feel on a particular player, then you bring him in and spend a little more time. Its just, at that point, to validate something that you think you already know, or to clear up any kind of medical issues. Smith reiterated on Wednesday that it hasnt affected how the Texans have set their draft board, and it wont affect their strategy on draft weekend. Weve said for years that you dont draft for need, he said. If you get a need position in the draft, then thats great. I think that it is a little odd and its backwards that typically youve filled your team, at least some of the positions of need, via free agency. But this year being a little bit different, it doesnt change our approach with respect to how we approach the draft and filling the needs on our team.
