Houston Texans could get a dream draft pick haul from the offense-hungry New York Jets.
The Jets and Giants are the only teams that have two top ten picks in the first round. However, with both Hill and Davante Adams fetching a first-round pick, Houston has the results to demand that they get one of the Jets’ first-rounders.
The Jets have an eye-popping 14 picks in this year’s draft, and Brandin Cooks could get at least three higher picks in return. What would they be?
This would give Houston three first-round picks for the first time in their franchise history and a gem of a pick in the second round at the 38th overall spot. Instead, Houston gives up their third-rounder to gain a first and second-round pick.
It seems crazy, but that definition has been re-written, published, and then scribbled out time and time again in the month of March. With a ton of playmakers outside of the quarterback class in the 2022 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans can win this trade and build their future.
The Jets also win by pairing Cooks with the emerging star in Elijah Moore, who shined late in the season last year. The Jets need all the firepower they can get in an AFC East that’s finally seeing a change in the power balance after the New England Patriots straight-up owned the division for the last 20 years.
