The highest projected player in the game is a need for the Texans in Minnesota defensive tackle Ra’Shede Hageman.
The Texans might not have a chance to take him in the second round, as the Texans’ first round draft choice will be too high on the list to select the defensive tackle.
He’s the 30th overall rated player and the No. 2 rated defensive tackle as he’s been timed with a 4.95 40-yard dash.
Teams projected to select Hageman (6-6, 311 pounds) are the Seattle Seahawks or Philadelphia Eagles between the 22nd through 32nd pick of the first round.
Hageman has been compared to J.J. Watt according to his draft overview on CBS:
“They don’t come much more physically imposing than Hageman, whose broad shoulders, long arms and trim waist have generated comparisons from J.J. Watt to John Henderson.”
