Houston Texans GM Rick Smith: I absolutely know who I want


The Houston Texans GM Rick Smith is ready for the draft and he knows who he wants with the first choice in the draft:

“I absolutely know who I want,” Smith told Fox Sports Southwest, per the team’s official website.

I would hope that he knows. He has been sitting with the top overall draft choice for a long time and he should know which player he would want to take.

He does have to take into consideration the possibility of moving down from that top selection. If some team does want to move up and take their guy, then they will have to consider the players that they could get later in the draft.

“Now where the game is played is if there’s an opportunity to move and, in this case, obviously to move back if somebody else wants to come up to that first pick,” Smith said. “Then you weigh what the opportunities are versus who the individual is that you want to take and what that value is relative to the value that somebody might be offering you.”

The Texans are ready! Now let’s get this thing started!
