Houston Texans: draft analysis and grades

This may have been the most entertaining draft in a while. Other than the constant boos hurled at NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, we were blessed to see Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott don a crop top tuxedo. I would’ve taken him off my draft board immediately after that, but even murder wouldn’t stop Cowboys owner Jerry Jones from targeting a player he wants (insert...

DeAndre Hopkins looking forward to fewer double teams in 2016

Texans pick up Clemson defensive tackle D.J. Reader in 5th round

Houston made their last pick of the 2016 Draft with the selection of Clemson defensive tackle D.J. Reader. A massively built, prototypical 3-4 nose tackle, Reader is a beast of an athlete at 6’3” and 328 lbs. Reader adds another body up front to the defensive line, and is a good depth pick for the Texans.

Watt, Jadeveon Clowney, Whitney Mercilus, Kevin Johnson, Kareem Jackson and Brian Cushing, the Houston Texans shifted to offense this time around, adding a bevy of playmakers that should help new quarterback Brock Osweiler.

Analyzing the Texans top picks

Houston’s offense was pathetic in 2015. It was never more evident than during the 30-0 thrashing at the hands of the Chiefs in the playoffs. The numbers bear it out very explicitly. They are downright offensive….sorry, couldn’t help myself.

Braxton Miller Posts Awesome Highlight Video To Show Houston Texans Fans What To Expect

After just one up-and-down year at wide receiver, Ohio State’s Braxton Miller proved enough to be a second day NFL Draft selection. Miller, a former quarterback, joins a potent receiving corps led by All-Pro DeAndre Hopkins and 2016 first rounder Will Fuller in Houston. He’s still very raw, but showed off some impressive playmaking ability in 2015, and as an introduction to his...

Reactions to Texans pick of Braxton Miller

First of all, I have to say that I love this pick. I definitely didn’t see it coming, but I like where Houston is going. They addressed the need to have a burner by getting Will Fuller in round one. Now, they’ve got a slot receiver in Miller who can create havoc for defenses. Things are shaping up nicely for the Texans receiving corps. Here are some the reactions from the Twittersphere...

Reactions to Texans pick of Nick Martin

Houston selected Notre Dame center Nick Martin in the second round. He will fill the spot vacated by Ben Jones, and should be able to start in week one. Offensive line picks are never flashy or sexy, but they are oh so necessary. The guys in the trenches are one of the biggest question marks heading into this season.

Texans grab speedster Will Fuller in first round

With the 21st pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans select Will Fuller, wide receiver, Notre Dame. This is not at all what I expected Goodell to say, but after seeing Corey Coleman go at 15, this makes perfect sense.
