The Houston Texans took a small jump up in ESPN’s post-draft power rankings.

Now that the NFL draft is over we’ve already seen NFL.com’s latest power rankings.

ESPN has now released their own post-draft rankings.

The Texans have been bumped up from 13th to 11th.  Not bad.

"Two of the quarterbacks the Texans considered — Tony Romo and Jay Cutler — took broadcasting jobs instead. They ended up with Deshaun Watson, and given Bill O’Brien’s quarterback-shuffling proclivities, Watson is sure to start six or eight games this year — just maybe not in a row."

If it wasn’t for the Texans drafting quarterback Deshaun Watson, I doubt they would have moved up in ESPN’s latest rankings.

Actually.  I bet if Houston would have instead taken a quarterback in the second round or later, they wouldn’t have made a jump at all.  They may have even fallen from the 13th spot.

The only team that I don’t agree with being above the Texans is the Denver Broncos at No. 10.

I feel like Houston has a better overall team than the Broncos who fell apart last season without quarterback Peyton Manning to lead them.
