The Houston Texans are one of the hottest teams in the NFL right now, and have completely shaken off their horrible start to the season. The Texans began the season by losing their first three games, but have rebounded in a big way, winning five straight, and sitting atop the AFC South as we enter Week 9.
One big reason for the rise has been the play of the quarterback, as Deshaun Watson is getting healthy again after tearing up his knee last season. Star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins may be the best player at his position in football, and continues to put highlight reels together each weekend.
When it comes time for the Texans to draft next April, it will be towards the bottom of the first round, and they should bolster the offensive line with the pick. A guy like David Edwards from Wisconsin would be a nice addition to the tackle position, as he has been one of the best in college football at that spot for the last couple of seasons.
Seeing this team with a hurt, or hobbled Watson is not pretty, so it would make sense for them to draft an offensive lineman in the first round next April. Edwards is a veteran guy, who can come in and start right away, and even if it is on the right side, he is a definite upgrade to an offensive line that has been suspect this season.
