So the Houston Texans didn’t get Johnny Football. Or even Teddy Football for that matter. But we did get Jadaveon Clowney and that means the 2014 draft is going in the right direction. But who should the Texans draft in Round 2? And where should they go from here?
Most people would say the obvious choice would be Fresno State QB Derek Carr. Or Notre Dame’s DT Louis Nix III. Or any of these awesome-ly talented players.
But not me.
A few weeks ago, I posted the so-called “crazy” idea to trade Andre Johnson from the Texans for a late second or early third round pick. Over the last 24-48 hours, that idea seems to have caught some steam nationally and might be in-the-works…. allegedly.
So if that did happen – and even if it doesn’t – who would make-up the Texans receiving corp? We know last year’s 1st round pick, DeAndre Hopkins would be the team’s #1 WR. But what do we have left behind him? Devier Posey… Keyshawn Martin…Mike “freaking” Thomas??
Grow up, Peter Pan.This team needs help at the TE/WR position even if they keep Johnson. A young Owen Daniels isn’t walking through that door and even if he did, his knee would probably blow-out at any moment. No, what the Texans need to do before they draft a NT, or a highly-rated G, is make sure they have their fair share of play-makers. They’re also not drafting David Carr‘s little brother, so just stop. (Personally, I think he’s gonna be a great QB, but it’s not gonna be here in Houston.)
