Kenny Pickett could be the first offensive player off the board, and he could be a Houston Texans quarterback soon.

The Houston Texans are in a pickle sitting at the third overall pick pick-up. Do they stay put, trade down, offense, defense? So many questions are due to be asked after the season finale this Sunday, with the Tenessee Titans coming into town.

If Houston Texans general manager Nick Caserio is enamored enough to pull the trigger, Houston would end up with one of the best talents at the quarterback position, if not the best. This year, Pickett exploded onto the scene while breaking a handful of Dan Marino’s college records.

This would be a fascinating pick, as the Texans just drafted Davis Mils with their first selection in the 2021 NFL Draft. However, Mills has had his rookie struggles but at least has tied veteran Tyrod Taylor for wins on the season.

Would an 0-7 start to Mills career be the dagger that ends his career? Most likely not, but if you had to choose between Picket and Mills, you’re going to take Pickett. Every. Single. TIme. This isn’t a knock on Mills, who has made many doubters quiet down this season. But when you can get first-round talent, that’s what usually wins out in the war rooms on draft day.

Especially with the Houston Texans being ranked dead last in yards per game in the NFL, Pickett can provide that extra spark that Mills doesn’t have and get the offense rolling again. So let’s start the analysis of Pickett.
