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.
