With the college football season starting today it brings me great joy to officially kick off what will be one of the most important draft cycles for the Houston Texans.
While the team has been showing a much better performance in preseason than majority expected - don't pencil in the #1 pick just yet - building through the draft is the best proven way to build a sustainable contender.
Thus, the anonymity of where our first round pick (and the rest of our draft capital that Nick Caserio loves trading for) lands motivates me to cast a decently wide net in regards to this article.
I am going to provide an early name for each position on offense and defense (sorry special teams) that I believe fits the Texans identity and scheme.
They won't all be projected first rounders or the top players at their respective positions, but that's the fun part - let's learn about some names to keep an eye on this year!
