This week, I’m finally going to give in and do a scenario where the Houston Texans trade their No. 1 overall selection and move down a little bit in the 2014 NFL Draft order.

Now, with that said, in this fifth version of my weekly 2014 NFL Mock Draft, the question remains: how far should the Texans trade down, and to whom are they likely to trade the No. 1 overall selection?

My guess is the team that has the most to offer Houston is the Cleveland Browns, as they have two first-round picks and multiple picks in the later rounds of the draft, which the Texans could use.

I don’t see the Browns giving the Texans both first rounders, but the Texans I believe could move down three spots to No. 4 overall and gain at least a third rounder and still get a very good quality QB in the draft.

Compared to last week’s mock draft, there are three new players in and three players out, but as always, I may change my mind again next week. Here is a link to my mock draft from last week.

Here is this week’s version of my mock draft with the Texans trading their No. 1 overall pick to the Browns for a No. 4 pick and assuming a package of picks in the latter part of the draft of some sort.

    Hold on, what picks did the browns give the Texans in the mock draft? I would think the Browns would give their 4th overall pick and 26th pick for the Texans 1st.

    • Stephen Forsha

      I doubt the Browns would do both 1sts to move up, but I figured it would be the No. 4, their 2nd rounder and maybe one of their 3rd rounders for the No. 1 overall, Just a guess though,

    Why in the world would KC take a nose tackle with their first pick???

    • Stephen Forsha

      Maybe I went a little to high with Nix at this pick, but he is a good player they could use. Maybe I should have gave them a wide receiver here?

      • cfjDTD

        Dontari Poe proved he is an elite nose tackle this year. In the 3-4 scheme you only need one and some back ups on the roster. Adding another NT to the roster with the 1st pick would not be very smart.

    If the Texans don’t draft Johnny or if they trade down, I swear to God, it will go down as hard as it needs to be.
