Let’s look and talk about it some more. CDTShareTweetShareShare2019 NFL Draft: Taking a Closer Look At The Tytus Howard SelectionChuck Cook-USA TODAY SportsLast night, everything fell in place for the Texans to grab a starting offensive tackle for the 2019 season and beyond. Then the Eagles jumped in front of Houston to take Andre Dillard. Then the Texans took Tytus Howard instead of Jawaan Taylor, who I’m guessing has some sort of incurable disease, because there’s no other reason for him to fall out of the first round. Now everyone outside the organization has their brains scrambled in their skull. The Howard pick may work out; if it does, it will probably be eventually. This is what I had to say about Howard before the 2019 NFL Draft: via Gfycat via GfycatLance Zierlein had the following to say:If you read any scouting report about Howard, you’ll find something similar. Howard is a big strong man, more bear than human Jordan Akins Color Rush Jersey , but he doesn’t have the technical aspects of the position down. He needs to develop. Maybe one day he’ll be come a competent starter or even great player. This is precisely the problem with the pick. Despite having plenty of cap space, the Texans didn’t add a potential starting offensive lineman in free agency. The idea was apparently that they would fill the holes through the draft with multiple early round picks. Only on Houston’s shoddy offensive line could Howard come in and overtake Seantrel Henderson at right tackle, or battle-fight against Julien Davenport and Matt Kalil for left tackle.In any other situation, Howard would be sitting, stewing, and learning. Houston took a developmental player they could have grabbed in the second and maybe in the third round when they needed someone who could play now. What makes it all even more perplexing is the team’s situation. Houston’s time to contend is now. Today. This season. Deshaun Watson is still on his rookie contract. The Texans don’t have to worry about committing 20% of their cap to one player. They can build a complete roster while still enjoying the luxury of a great quarterback rather than requiring that QB to make up for the deficiencies in the roster that result from paying one player an enormous sum. The time to win in Houston is now.The only thing there is is now, yet the team instead made a pick for the future. Howard will probably become a starting tackle for Houston eventually, and that’s exactly why last night’s selection was a bad one.

CDTShareTweetShareShareSB Nation Ranks The Texans’ Skill PositionsPhoto by Bob Levey/Getty ImagesI’m too punk rock and have listened to way too much Rage Against The Machine to be a full fledged company man. So don’t bathe me in egg yolk and roll me in flour for what you are about to read. SB Nation ranked the skill positions of every NFL team, backup quarterbacks included Ka'imi Fairbairn Color Rush Jersey , and here is what they had to say about the Houston Texans. Wide Receivers: 9thRunning Backs: 29th:Backup Quarterbacks: Tier Three Backup Quarterbacks Tight Ends: 28thIt’s a tough job, and it’s hard to write these sorts of things, but without Alfred Blue around, D’Onta Foreman angry and healthy, and the selection of Kahale Warring, the Texans should be ranked higher at both running back and tight end.I will not get started on the Colts’ having the best tight end group. Get mad online if you want, or take this as an interesting and different viewpoint. It’s up to you. Close your eyes. Football starts again in 98 days.
