After falling just short of the AFC Championship game, the Houston Texans need to reload in the 2020 NFL Draft with the hopes of getting to the Super Bowl.
The Houston Texans had the Kansas City Chiefs in a bind in the playoffs with a multiple score lead. Instead the Chiefs just celebrated a Super Bowl LIV victory while the Texans watched them beat the San Francisco 49ers from their couch. Now both teams are on to planning for the 2020 NFL Draft, and the Texans will hope to improve their roster and seek revenge.
The Texans have also since decided to stick with their plan of riding without a general manager, well actually with the plan of promoting head coach Bill O’Brien into the role full time. This will be O’Brien’s first draft in this role, and the stakes are high as the Texans’ Super Bowl window is firmly open as Deshaun Watson is still on his rookie contract.
The do, however, have a limited number of draft assets to work with after dealing for left tackle Laremy Tunsil and wide receiver Kenny Stills from the Miami before the 2019 season began. The Texans are currently without a first round pick, a third round pick, and a sixth round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and have just five picks in total.
With only one pick on the first two days of the draft, O’Brien must hit a homerun in the later rounds. Here is a seven round mock, well, a four round mock draft for the Texans.
