Round 1 (23rd Overall): Andre Dillard, OT, Washington State
Once the 23rd overall selection arrives for the Houston Texans, there is still a chance the third-ranked offensive tackle could still be on the board, and that is where Andre Dillard comes to the forefront with this selection.
The Texans know their offensive line was horrible in 2018, and after giving up 62 regular-season sacks and three sacks in the playoff game, changes need made and improvement must happen for the Texans to gain 11 or even more wins for a second straight season.
In drafting Dillard in the first round, the Texans should be able to rest their minds in knowing they’d be adding a player who can be a strong left tackle in the NFL, which was a spot the Texans lacked in a season ago.
Houston needs to do whatever they can to improve their offense and make life a little easier for franchise quarterback Deshaun Watson this upcoming season. Dillard fits the description and would be a great asset if still on the board at 23rd overall, but it will be a wait-and-see moment as the draft reaches the Texans’ turn.
