The Houston Texans have announced the dates of some important events in the 2022 NFL offseason.

For the Houston Texans who have been waiting for the true rebuild to happen, it’s finally going to start soon. On Friday, the NFL and the Texans themselves announced the start dates for a handful of offseason events. Here’s the list of dates that you need to know:

  • Start of the offseason workouts: April 11
  • Voluntary minicamp: April 26th-28th
  • OTA Offseason workouts: May 23, May 25-26, May 31, June 2-3, June 6-9
  • Mandatory minicamp: June 14-16

The most interesting part of this list is that the voluntary minicamp ends the day of the first round of the 2022 NFL Draft. Again, it’s probably the assistant coaches running this minicamp, but it’s a little puzzling why a team would schedule a minicamp right at the end of the draft process where there could be even more work done in the final days leading up to the draft than the months before it.

Houston Texans enter the 2022 NFL Draft with a ton of needs

Plenty of mock drafts have come and gone, and we’ve scouted tons of players. As to who Houston will draft, nobody knows for sure. If there’s one thing that Nick Caserio has done a good job with, it’s not tipping his hand. On top of that, his moves have seemed to come on his watch.

Caserio got as much as he could for Deshaun Watson and made a handful of trades during the 2021 season as well. Caserio has 20 years of experience from his time in New England, where the Patriots were pretty successful.

So whoever the picks are at numbers three and thirteen, so be it. Let’s just hope they’re playmakers that fit and will elevate the team to new heights.
