Grading The Houston Texans’ 2017 Draft Class

NFL Draft do’s and don’ts for the Houston Texans

On Thursday, the NFL Draft rolls into Philadelphia and some teams have a lot riding on it.

Will the Texans draft Cam Robinson?

Although the Texans have a huge hole to fill at the quarterback position, they have an equally big hole to fill on the offensive line. On a line that struggled at times to protect Brock Osweiler or make holes for Lamar Miller, a young, talented lineman could make all the difference.
