The Houston Texans offense is in dire need of help.

That’s why April 28th cannot come any faster for the Houston Texans and GM Nick Caserio. Houston had the 30th-ranked offense last year, just ahead of Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Giants.

That’s not the company you want to be associated with, as those two teams were stuck in “Park” for most, if not the entire season. So how can the Houston Texans improve this offense? By drafting for need, and they sure have a lot of them.

Caserio pulls a near “Matt Rhule” and drafts almost exclusively offensive players in this mock draft, with six offensive players taken within the first seven picks. Houston is choosing to build around Davis Mills, and if there was ever a year to see if he genuinely is the future quarterback, then 2022 is the year.

Even if Mills fails, the Houston Texans will remain just a quarterback away (the irony). That could make room for acquiring a veteran passer in 2023 or getting one via the draft.

As for those questions as to why the defense wasn’t focused on in this mock draft is under the presumption that Houston would go after defensive stars in free agency. Hence why, the offense gets the majority of the selections.

Let’s get into the first-round pick, and credit goes to the NFL Mock Draft Database for this mock draft.
