The Houston Texans organization is no way, shape, or form in a good spot. Now, although that works out well for a few players on the team, it doesn’t bode well for one player: Brandin Cooks.

The Houston Texans don’t have a lot going for them right now. They have the Deshaun Watson fiasco going on, and they are in the early stages of a rebuild that makes their team pretty ugly on paper.

It wasn’t always like that though. Prior to everything that’s happened in the last couple seasons, the Texans actually had what I’d consider a very promising roster. In fact, they even made the playoffs only a few years ago. But as it turns out, that was the peak of Texans football.

Following making the playoffs, the Texans rebounded and finished the following season with only four total wins. And then everything broke loose.

Deshaun Watson began to get lawsuits filed against him at which point the Texans had to find a new quarterback. They decided to go with quarterback, Davis Mills. But, that was just the tip of the iceberg. They also lost J.J. Watt who later signed with the Arizona Cardinals, and they traded away linebacker, Benardrick McKinney.

It’s clear that they are in a rough spot. However, after their draft this season, there is a lot of bright spots appearing at the end of the tunnel.

They drafted Derek Stingley Jr., Kenyon Green, Jalen Pitre, John Metchie III, Christian Harris, and many more talented players. And when looking at the list of names above, I have complete faith that this team is on it’s way. But there is still one problem:

CBSsports.com released a top 100 players list and all Texans were held at bay including wide receiver, Brandin Cooks. So, let me ask: If Brandin Cooks was on a different team would he have made the list? Well, let’s take a deeper look into the question.
