3. Houston Gets Their Guy
It has been the entire existence of the Texans to find a quarterback. For a short window they had a guy who did very well in a very specific system. However, the Texans are now back to square one with their quarterback position.
They can pretend all they want about the guys they have under center now, but they need to at least have someone they reasonably believe can be a franchise quarterback. To jump from 16 to 4 would cost a lot, but with a team that could be a Super Bowl contender with the right young passer as the leader of the offense it may be worth the risk for the Texans.
We are talking about a Rober Griffin style trade. The place this would put the Raider franchise would be incredible. Although there are some believable aspects to this happening, it is also a long shot, but in this sort of draft you cannot rule out the inexplicable.
