    He’s already in the conversation. Tied for the lead for rookie sacks.

    Will Anderson has won me over. Not only is he producing on the field, but we got a leader, tone setter in the locker room. Him being there elevates the culture of everyone else in that defense.

    Yeah, so glad we traded up for this guy. We probably won’t have another chance it get a talent like that in the draft for as long as CJ is here. I think the DROY race should be closer than folks are making it out to be, especially if he can get to Levis a few times

    Truth be told we got lucky that it was only two 1st round picks, plus the 2nd and 3rd. I think we also got back a 4th round pick.

    A top of the 1st round pick goes for at least 3 first rounders plus some combination of 2nd or 3rd with some later picks.

    Will Anderson was likely the #1 pick for many teams in the draft, especially those that did not have QB needs or DL need.

    Texans have an amazing 2023 draft class.

    It’s such an awesome feeling to see the guys selected at the top of the draft playing up to their talents. Will Anderson is looking every bit as good as a perennial pro bowler as a rookie.

    He should be leading DROY by the end of the season. Keep it up young man.

    He's a relentless dam menace, l mean like a 250 pound Belgian malinois sicced every snap. It's just fascinating watching his development and tenacity.

    Need to invest in an elite DT and LB. A healthy Stingley and Anderson already makes this a solid D. Could be elite with another top talent or two. I could easily see a superbowl run next year if we go all in in FA.

    Plenty of good DT's available. I would love to see Sweat in the 3rd and Murphy in the 4th.

    I'm hoping this is a down year for Pitre and he gets back to being able tackle and not getting burn so much...but we might have to look add at safety also. I feel we need S and DT.

    Maybe Kenyon Green does the same next year, but I really wanted Kyle Hamilton with that pick to go with Sting. Hamilton looking much better than Pitre.
