1. Houston Texans (Nos. 2 and 12)
Houston has two picks in the first round and a ton of needs, so there’s a chance they could go defense with their first pick somewhere on the defensive line or the Texans could snag a quarterback like Anthony Richardson, CJ Stroud, or Bryce Young.
I think there’s a decent chance they get a quarterback and a receiver with their first two picks to kind of solidify that offense that was so lackluster last year.
They did get their running back of the future in Dameon Pierce so that position isn’t a need and if they can get a quarterback (or stick with Davis Mills) and add a receiver like Quentin Johnston at No. 12, they would have a nice start to that offense under a new head coach.
Johnston would be a good fit here because he has WR1 potential and his size and athleticism make him an intriguing prospect along with the fact that he could stay close to home to lead the home-state Texans back to relevance.
This would be a win for everyone.
