We did it! After three days and several trades, we have nine new Houston Texans; six from the SEC, two from the PAC-12 and one from the Big 12. And depending on who you ask, it was one of the best Texas drafts in recent memory (perhaps influenced by the memory of several drafts led by BOB ) or just the same old Texans.
As for me? I know better. It usually takes three years to get clarity on a team’s draft type. I want to believe it was a good course, I have no reason to doubt it at the moment. But I’m a Texans fan, and it helps to always be skeptical until you see these rookies on the field.
The upside is that we have a lot of potential starters in this class, so we might find out sooner rather than later how good this particular project is.
So let’s review our new Texans one more time. You know, for old times sake:
1(3) – Derek Stingley, BC, LSU
1(15) by PHI – Kenyon Green, G, Texas A&M [Editor’s Note: Woooooooooooo! Atascocita represent!]
2(37) – Jalen Pitre, S, Baylor
2(44) of KEY -John Metchie, WR, Alabama
3(75) by DEN – Christian Harris, LB, Alabama
4(107) of KEY – Dameon Pierce, RB, Florida
5(150) by CHI – Thomas Booker, DT, Stanford
5(170) from NE – Teagan Quitoriano, TE, Oregon St.
6(205) from GB -Austin Deculus, T, LSU
And There you go. So much potential to draw from this group. I can only hope this turns out to be one of the best draft classes in franchise history.
Stay tuned for the upcoming UDFA tracker after the draft is finished.
