Yeah, I’m still not a fan of the change to primetime for the NFL draft, but it’s here, and I’m excited to see who the Texans pick.
I know I have been woefully absent during this draft buildup, but I thought I’d get my (very) short thoughts in on the night of the first round.
Assuming Houston doesn’t trade out of the first round, my position preference is OLB or WR, though I like the low-round OLBs more than the low-round WRs. I’m also preparing myself for them to take an offensive lineman, which probably wouldn’t be a popular pick, but the Texans know better than you, me, or any other blogger does – so I’ll defer unless the pick is just WAY out of left field.
I’m not overly excited about WRs Stephen Hill, Kendall Wright, Alshon Jeffery, etc. I like LSU’s Rueben Randle the most out of that “next tier” of WRs… but there are several OLBs who I would be happy with at that spot.
We’ll see what happens. Enjoy your draft weekend.
