Bold prediction number three: Houston Texans select a running back in the second round

The Houston Texans have a great chance to improve all areas of the team this year. Any other position other than running back here is what most would be okay with. But why not get a dynamic playmaker when you can?

A great running back changes everything for an offense, and it’s not like the early 2000s where teams have their offense run through the running back position. It complements the more significant task at hand, which is winning games.

Should guys like Kenneth Walker III or even Breece Hall drop into the second, Houston will take one of those guys in a heartbeat. Houston nearly out-rushed the 2002 expansion team by 75 yards last year, and improving this position will make Sundays a lot more bearable to watch.

Next. Second round WR targets for Texans are plenty. dark
