The Texans went 9-7 and won the AFC South. They beat the Raiders who were missing Derek Carr, and lost to eventual Super Bowl Champions New England Patriots. The Houston problems by most concerns began and ended with the play of QB Brock Osweiler. The Texans signed Osweiler to a huge free agent deal that did not work. They basically traded Osweiler and draft picks to Cleveland in a trade not likely to happen again in the NFL.
With that qb ‘guru’ Bill O’Brien needs a qb. I will admit Bill O’Brien lost me forever with his mismanagement of the game against the Minnesota Vikings. They gave up two touchdowns in less than 5 minutes and BO’B said that they had to abandon the run and be one dimensional. There was still 55 minutes to go, but nope the ‘guru’ had to go pass only. There is a reason why even down 25 points in the Super Bowl the Patriots did not go one dimensional. And that is why they are the Patriots and why the Texans are the Texans. So lets draft a qb that should probably not be taken until the 2nd or 3rd round right here at 25. Lets go ahead and get wrecked finish 6-10 get rid of BO’B and plug in the next coach. Because a guru we certainly are not.
Patrick Mahomes comes out of Texas Tech at 6’2″ 225lbs, and has an amazing arm (his father is a former MLB pitcher). The issues with him are he likes to freelance and I have seen comparisons to Jay Cutler and Johnny Football. If he can be coached and listen he could have a long career.
Texans will take Patrick Mahomes QB Texas Tech.
