We regret to inform you that Bill O’Brien has traded you for a used Geo Metro. Here’s a full seven-round mock draft for the Houston Texans.

What a wild, strange offseason it has been for the Houston Texans.

Head coach/general manager/team mechanic(?) Bill O’Brien’s trade of star wideout DeAndre Hopkins to the Cardinals for an underwhelming return has been difficult to comprehend for many Texans fans and NFL pundits alike. Paired with the unsavory taste of an ugly playoff loss against the Chiefs at the end of last year and O’Brien’s seat is hotter than ever before.

To make matters worse, the Texans are without a first-round pick that was sent to Miami in the trade for Laremy Tunsil and Kenny Stills. While Tunsil has been outstanding as the team’s left tackle, Houston needs to hit on this draft in a major way to erase the sins of this offseason.

How will the Texans approach the 2020 NFL Draft as they look to repeat as AFC South champions? Here’s a look at how it could play out in this seven-round mock:

1st round – No selections

Are you surprised that Bill O’Brien traded away his picks? Houston is going to need to hit home runs in the draft’s later rounds to make up for the lack of a first-round pick but that’s even more difficult given how this Draft will go.

Without the ability to meet with players, scout them in the traditional sense, and really get a feel for what prospect is going to help the franchise achieve its Super Bowl aspirations, Houston is up against it even more than they already were.

So let’s get into it.
