The Houston Texans are already on the verge of an exciting first day of the 2022 NFL Draft, being selected No. 3 and 13 overall in the first round.
Could the Texans get lucky and get selected in Round 1 for a third time on April 28?
According to Cody Benjamin of CBS Sports, the Buffalo Bills are a team ready to trade back their 25th overall pick in the first round.
you can imagine [general manager] Brandon Bean will be willing to move forward with Buffalo in win-now mode, but his needs can be addressed more patiently. Sliding back – or even moving – from the first round could help him take an extra swing on the second day.
Houston’s next pick after No. 13 is ranked 37th overall—five places in the second round. If General Manager Nick Casario can sell Bean on the idea that he can meet the roster’s needs with a higher Round 2 pick, the Texans can climb back into the first round and make three Round 1 picks in the same draft for the first time. Huh. Team History.
For the hat-trick to return to Round 1, the Texans would have expected to drop their first two Round 3 selections at No. 37 overall selection and No. 68 overall.
At number 25 overall, the Texans could look to Clemson cornerback Andrew Booth, Penn State receiver Jahan Dotson, Georgia defensive tackle Devonte Wyatt, Purdue defensive end George Karloftis, or even Iowa center Tyler Linderbaum — at least Well, that’s the way of Luke Easterling’s recent mock draft projects.
As Caserio proved in the 2021 NFL Draft, the Texans are ready to package picks to pick the right player; Kesario gives importance to quality over quantity when it comes to talent acquisition through draft. If Houston can add three top-30 players to its roster, it will help the Texans get on competitively faster.
