Report: Houston Texans inquire about trading up for another 1st round choice

Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweeted out today that the Houston Texans are one of a few teams that want to trade up into the first round for a second first round selection.

With the 2014 NFL Draft beginning tonight, Schefter tweeted the Texans have inquired about trading their second round choice (and other picks) to get a second first round choice for Thursday evening.

The Texans have a total of 11 picks this draft.

Here is the tweet from Schefter:

He also mentions the Detroit Lions, New York Jets, Cleveland Browns, San Francisco 49ers and the Atlanta Falcons have interest in moving up in the first round, or gaining a second first round choice.

If that is the case, to me it seems the Texans will be selecting a player other than a quarterback No. 1 overall, then if they were to land a second first round choice that pick would be a QB.


If you think about it, a strategy to gain a second first round choice makes a lot of sense for the Texans and one I wouldn’t be opposed to them making.

What are your thoughts on this possibility? Let us know.
