The 2021 season has been a predictable nightmare for the Houston Texans.

Sitting with a record of 1-8 at their own bye week, the only team worse is the winless Detroit Lions. The Texans showed promise for one week (as laughable as that is) and after Tyrod Taylor’s injury against the Cleveland Browns, it all went downhill. Eight straight losses that were all over the map are enough to kill any team’s morale.

With that being said, a majority of the Houston Texans fan base is already looking forward to the end of the season. Who can blame them? The reason the excitement is already building at this point of the regular season is that this will be only their second time owning a first-round selection within the last five years.

Those last two first-round picks were Tytus Howard and Deshaun Watson. Both were solid picks until Watson’s legal allegations came to light last offseason. Anyone that has watched the Houston Texans play in 2021 knows that they need everything, to be honest. It’s been brutal.

One week one side of the ball will look adequate, meanwhile, the opposite side is completely broken and inoperable. Some of their games have ended in odd scores (no pun intended) of zero, three, and five.

So who will the Texans select with their first pick? Will it be Kayvon Thibodeaux or Aidan Hutchinson? Will a quarterback enter the mix? There will be lots of intrigue in who the Texans pick in April.
