If the Houston Texans draft a quarterback, they’re going to need more weapons

Taking quarterback at the third overall slot requires a lot of gusto and defense of why they’ve taken quarterbacks in back-to-back years with their first selection of each respective draft. Kenny Pickett seems to be the top passer in the draft, but some have also seen Matt Corral be up there.

Houston would have to hop

e one of the better wide receivers falls into the second round of the draft, as there is no one behind Brandin Cooks, who had a phenomenal season. Rookie wide receiver and fifth-round draft pick Nico Collins had a good season and nearly out-gained the first-round choice, Kadarius Toney, on the season.

Collins still has a long way to go before he’s considered a lethal threat in the passing game. That’s why another wide receiver is needed to breathe life into Houston’s aerial attack. There are also a few free-agent wide receivers that Houston could go after as well.

The rushing attack, as mentioned before, was embarrassing. Someone like Kenneth Walker III of Michigan State could also be the choice in the second round. Let’s lose the stigma on drafting running backs early, as they are vital in taking the pressure off of the passing game for younger quarterbacks.

Playmakers are playmakers, no matter how long they last in their prime.
