Should the Houston Texans Move Up In The 2015 NFL Draft?


The Houston Texans desperately need a starting quarterback. Most fans seem to have placed their hopes in the Texans re-signing free agent quarterback Ryan Mallett. But with other NFL teams apparently also interested in Mallett, there is a chance Houston could strike out with the young prospect.

In that case, would it be in the best interest of the team to move up in the first round of the upcoming NFL Draft and select one of the top two quarterback prospects?

The Texans own the 16th overall pick in the upcoming draft’s first round. But the top rated quarterbacks, Florida State’s Jameis Winston and Oregon’s Marcus Mariota, are expected to be selected within the top-six picks.

In order to move up that high, Houston would have to sacrifice a bit of it’s future in order to do so. But it may be worth the price in order to secure a franchise quarterback.

But what do you think? Should the Houston Texans move up in the first round of the NFL Draft to draft a quarterback?
