Finally, the draft is upon us in a matter of hours. We have looked at tons of mock drafts, some changing all the time while some stay around the same picks in regards to team’s draft needs. In my second mock, I plan to look at the draft from a worst case scenario prospective. No draft ever goes exactly how you expect it to so I plan to do this mock based on who may or may not be available on the board. Keep in mind that these picks are based on current draft position, no trading up or back involved. With that said, here is my second mock draft.
PICK NO. 57
Justin Hunter, Tennessee
JUSTIN HUNTER / 6’4 / 196
WIDE RECEIVER / TENNESSEE
With all of the receivers worthy of a first round grade gone and Keenan Allen’s knee issue, the Texans choose to go with a bit of a wild card in Justin Hunter. The Texans need a playmaker and that’s just what Hunter is. He has all of the traits that the Texans need in a wide receiver opposite of Andre, plus with his height it brings a differen...

After months of talking about the draft, and trying to figure our what the Texans needed to get to their first Super Bowl the Texans made their first pick last night.

1.27 Houston Texans DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson, (6-1, 214)
Andre Johnson has publicly stated that the Texans need to stop beating around the bush and get a receiver on the opposite side of the field to open things up. The Texans answered the call and grabbed a great athlete in Hopkins.
Hopkins is an athletic receiver that doesn’t really have any specific weaknesses. He can run...
HOUSTON (AP) -- The Houston Texans have selected Clemson receiver DeAndre Hopkins with the 27th overall pick in the NFL draft.

If you can remember all the way back to when Friday Night Lights was a movie about a non-fiction book about a high school football team in west Texas, then maybe you can empathize with J.J. Watt on this.

When the NFL added the expansion Houston Texans to its league in 2002, it brought the number of teams up to an even 32. In the eleven drafts since then, there have been 351 first round selections. Why not an even 352? I think Bill Belichick has the answer to that question.
Anyway, something interesting to note about these 351 first round draft picks is that only 122 went on to reach...
