    Easily BPA there. I love this pick. If Honey Badger pans out, we may have a great defense this year

    Best safeties we have ever had easily! Love this pick. BPA at a position of need. Elite size/speed combo and production. If his slide had anything to do with his brother Eric Reid you know Bob Mcnair is going to mention they are "taking a chance" on a kid with first round talent.

    I think it's a good pick. I was afraid they would reach for whatever ot was available

    Best Safety in the draft for my money. First round talent at #68. I think he's a top 20 player. Unreal. Great pick.

    Agreed! We need an OT too but this team has never had 3 quality safeties. Hal will be coming off the bench by mid season.

    Can't believe he dropped out of the 1st round. And very durable with no significant injury history!

    Great pick.

    I'm glad Gaine didn't reach.

    Finally WR's wont be running crossing routes all day every Sunday.

    My take
    : This was a good pick for the Texans, who needed to improve the secondary after the unit ranked 24th last season in yards allowed per game. General manager Brian Gaine made it clear Houston felt it did enough in free agency to have the flexibility to draft the best available player instead of picking just for need. If Reid was at the top of the Texans' draft board, they were able to do that while also filling a need. Reid was first-team All-Pac-12 and adds another athletic player to an already-impressive defense. Houston has other needs, namely at left tackle, but the selection of Reid makes sense for a Texans team trying to get back to having a top-rated defense.

    How he fits: The Texans upgraded their secondary this offseason by adding safety Tyrann Mathieu in free agency and Reid with their first pick. The Texans re-signed free safety Andre Hal last offseason, but Reid should compete with him for a spot right away. Reid is athletic and the Texans will like his size at 6-foot-1 and 207 pounds. Reid started 11 of 14 games last season, with 99 tackles, 6.5 for loss, five interceptions and six pass breakups. Reid saw a lot time on special teams at Stanford and could make an impact there for Houston, too.

    Can't believe Reid fell to 68. We finally have a bonafide centerfielder at safety!
