Every NFL fan absolutely loves the NFL Draft. It’s a three-day long party where we all get to watch as we beg and plead for our favorite teams to grab that next big star for us to cheer for.
As for the Houston Texans, they had a successful draft in one regard, they made their offense more dangerous. Their first four draft picks were all dedicated to the offensive side of the ball, which was incredibly unexpected considering they dedicated so much money to that side this offseason with the acquisition of quarterback Brock Osweiler, guard Jeff Allen and running back Lamar Miller.
