It’s not often that a high-profile draft prospect wants to go to one of the worst teams in the league in the Houston Texans.
If there’s one thing that almost every Houston sports fan shares, it’s their love and passion for the teams that reside and the players who make up said, teams. The Houston Texans have a need for a well-rounded pass rusher to pair with a rising star in Jonathon Greenard. Houston has the perfect opportunity to pair Greenard with a dynamic playmaker.
Kayvon Thibodeaux brings a variety of skill sets to the defensive front, and if there’s one thing Lovie Smith loves, it’s getting pressure on the quarterback. Thibodeaux referred to himself as “Jadeveon Clowney 2.0,” which may have been taken slightly out of context initially.
There’s no doubt that a healthy Clowney was a game-changing force.
Nick Caserio is keeping the “cards” of the Houston Texans close to his chest.
Whether Caserio decides to draft Kayvon Thibodeaux is to be determined. There are countless scenarios with how the remainder of the offseason will play out. Many are speculating picks in return for star quarterback Deshaun Watson.
Caserio has not denied that he would trade back from the number 3 pick either. With free agency soon to open March 16th, and Deshaun Watson’s deposition set for March 11th, it’s hard not to be excited to be a fan of the Houston Texans.
Caserio did a great job in the later rounds of the 2021 draft. However, with the possibility of multiple first and second-round picks in play, it’s easy to see the light at the end of the tunnel. We’ll see if Thibodeaux is part of the plan in 2022.
