Texans 7-round mock draft with Deshaun Watson trade scenario

Round 5, Pick 133: Anthony Schwartz, WR, Auburn
It looks likely that the Texans will lose Wil Fuller in free agency this upcoming offseason, especially after his suspension. With that being said, the Texans will now have to add another speedy deep threat to their offensive system to replace him. They do that here in the form of Auburn’s Anthony Schwartz.
Drae Harris of The Draft Network breaks down Schwartz’ game:
"He has excellent suddenness off the line of scrimmage and quickly eats up a defender’s cushion. Schwartz is the type of ball carrier that keeps you on the edge of your seat due to his home run ability to take any catch or carry the distance. Because his deep speed is so dynamic, he forces defenders to open their hips early — as a result, hitches and 5 routes are usually easy pitch and catch situations. He demonstrates toughness to catch slant routes from the slot and also 6 routes. He has good tracking ability and soft hands to catch deep balls."
Rumors that he has the ability to break the combine’s 40 yard dash record cannot come true now after the cancellation of the event. However he can straight up fly. On the year for the Tigers, Schwartz racked up 636 yards and three touchdowns on 54 catches. He now heads to Houston to be their next big deep threat.

Round 6, Pick 166: JaCoby Stevens, S, LSU
Adding another versatile weapon to their defense, the Texans land LSU safety JaCoby Stevens with the 166th overall pick in this mock draft. Stevens will become what will turn out to be one of three sixth round picks the Texans hold.
Listed at 6-foot-2 and 230 pounds, Stevens has the versatility to align at the third level of the defense and at the second level of the defense. In 10 games this season, Stevens racked up six tackles for loss, three sacks, four passes defended, and a forced fumble for the Tigers. He will be a much-needed chess piece to this defense.
