After months upon months upon months of planning, evaluating, analyzing, doubting, confirming, re-evaluating, and speculating, the draft is finally over and done with. With all of the picks selected and most likely to be signed in the coming weeks, we (as analysts), must go out and analyze every single pick and go through where teams may or may not have gone wrong in their individual selections and list some possible solutions or corrections.
In this article I will go through and critique the team with the first pick in the draft: the Houston Texans. Considering that the Texans went 2-14 last season, they had a lot of improving to do this off-season so that they don’t replicate another disastrous season. The Texans went out and did what everyone was expecting in drafting Jadeveon Clowney, however the rest of the Texan’s draft selections still remain as unclear and ambiguous after the draft as before it. No fear cavalier, I’ll be going through each pick (offensive and defensive) and pinpointing the possible rationale and potential ways for the Texans to best utilize their current draft personnel to their advantage.
