Day two… I love it. Brooks Reed isn’t the top guy I would have taken in the second, but you bet he was on my list. Brandon Harris – that pick I absolutely LOVE. The Texans gave up their third and their fifth to the New England Patriots for Harris, who many feel has first round talent.
The Texans lost a pick, but I’m okay with that. They made a decision to trade up for a guy who they feel can make an impact right away, and I’m fine with that. I want guys who can PLAY on this team. I’m good with going for a specific talent over compiling bodies. Not so much in the first, and not normally in the second – but for a talent like Harris who I really thought was going to end up going in the first round – I love love love it. I’m happy.
So what’s the word? Do you think the Texans gave up too much to move up and nab Harris? I don’t. This guy’s gonna be a player. Reed I like too, but I love that the Texans showed some gumption and moved up to get a player. The defense has now been improved in three areas, defensive line, linebackers, and secondary.
We’ll see what day three brings.
