    What are the chances we move back into the first or second round.

    Anyone else realize they had to go Stroud 2 before Anderson to take Stroud off the board for anyone trading with AZ. That #3 pick lost half its trade value after Stroud got picked.

    Smart and subtle move to lower the cost to move up...

    Yeah, I posted about that earlier in the day. That was the only way to do it. Would have been idiocy the other way around.

    I mean I’ve seen this said a lot but the Texans paid premium pricing for that trade up. There was no cost savings

    The cost to move up would have been higher with Stroud there.

    I may have exaggerated but there would be nore teams moving up for Stroud than Anderson.

    2. Houston Texans: C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State

    The Texans ranked last in yards per play and 31st in total offense last season. Houston needed a quarterback, and after significant posturing and speculation, the Texans did the smartest thing possible: they drafted a quarterback and it was the right one.

    Much was made about C.J. Stroud’s lack of running ability, but that’s somewhat overrated because he could do far more damage through the air. Stroud posted national highs in touchdowns (41) and yards per attempt (9.5) while completing 66.3 percent of his throws. At Ohio State, Stroud (6-3, 214) was surrounded by some of the best receivers in college football history, and he let them make plays.

    Stroud has great touch, and the Texans now can build around him. Though the Houston brass might have preferred a defender for defensive-minded head coach DeMeco Ryans, drafting Stroud is a step in the right direction. And they didn’t wait to get defensive help, either.

    Grade: B+

    People saying “he needs weapons”….umm he has good offensive players around him already.

    He has a good O Line, good runningback…

    Robert Woods, a rookie in Metchie…Collins and Schultz.

    They need to get a Center and i’m good with going with that group as is.

    Draft his alpha WR next season if needed.

    Of course he doesn’t believe in pressure, he couldn’t avoid it if he did
