Draft szn is in full force and it's time to evaluate 200+ prospects, fall in obsessive love with 50, and have my favorite team draft zero of them! The 2021 NFL Draft is one full of questions for the Houston Texans - Will star Quarterback Deshaun Watson actually be traded? Should you hop on the Zach Wilson, Justin Fields, Trey Lance or Mac Jones hype train? Is it even worth watching and researching first and second round prospects?
While I can't answer any of those questions with 100% certainty, I will be evaluating and exhausting all our potential options during this draft - from Alabama to Wisconsin-Whitewater, so stay tuned for rankings, scouting reports and film breakdowns to help you keep up with what will hands down be the craziest and most unpredictable draft yet.
I've started my full evaluations on prospects, with the Interior Defensive Lineman (IDL) position group. The draft should always be about best player available but it's hard not to want to fill obvious and drastic holes on your team. IDL is currently the Texans biggest need in my opinion, getting a player to improve our 29th ranked run defense DVOA and to start at 1-tech defensive tackle in Lovie Smith's 4-3 is paramount to making the whole system work. So, while this IDL class isn't very strong at the top, there are a lot of mid-round options that I think would be perfect for us. Let's begin at the top and work our way down.
