Texans’ State Of the Union...

They should have waited, and traded capital to ensure that they move up in that get one of the QB's in the 2018 draft after they rebuilt the ol.

BTW, DW4 was in the 2017 draft and the Allen draft was in 2018.

I said at the time that I would have traded up in the 2017 draft for Mahomes.
Who wouldnt want to trade up for Mahomes.
I don't think they have the partner and most likely didn't expect the Chiefs to jump ahead of them.
I'm most inclined to think that the trade up to the 12th spot somehow was tied up with the Osweiler's deal.

They can't wait another year with Savage as the starting QB now could they?
How I wish they had done that so BOB got fired that season, LOL.

But how far were you willing to trade up & what would you have given up to do it?

We know the Texans liked Mahomes. The move to 12 was probably planned before hand to get Mahomes. But things didn't work out that way. Just like we had a trade in place to get Aldon Smith, but he was taken before the slot. We decided to stay put & not trade up for Jj Watt & got him anyway.

I would have thought 12 would have been high enough to get one of the two best QBs in the draft. & when the Bears took Trubisky & I think Arizona passed on QB... I figured they'd both be there.

If you really like a QB you dont wait. You trade up to whatever it takes to get your guy. I had Mahomes rated as my top QB in that draft. Since the Texans needed a QB I would've traded up into the top 5 to get QB I liked the most. Same thing happened with missing out on Jimmy G. History just keeps repeating itself.
