    All this talk about arm strength for Richardson and Levis...

    JaMarcus Russell could supposedly throw 70 yards from his knees.

    Can't imagine taking either in the first round. Maybe Anthony Richardson is the next Josh Allen. Maybe Will Levis is the next Brett Favre. But more than likely they are just the next NFL busts.

    Maybe so, but Stroud is the most likely to bust

    2. Houston Texans: Bryce Young, QB, Alabama

    By the same logic as Chicago above, Houston has options. There’s no guarantee the Texans take a quarterback at No. 2 (even if they absolutely still need a franchise QB). The Texans have the best haul of draft capital available and they’re insanely young as a team, so they could wait until next year if they want. Young, however, is a mature leader with a strong football IQ. He’d be tough to pass up if he slips past the top spot.

    9. Houston Texas (*Projected trade: No. 9 for Nos. 12 and 66) : Peter Skoronski, OL, Northwestern

    Dane had Carolina moving up for Stroud and, perhaps, that’s true north for the Panthers: whatever it takes to get a starting QB. If that’s not possible or doesn’t come to pass, the next item on the agenda might be receiver. In this draft, No. 9 could be too high to address that position.

    So, instead, Carolina trades back here and Houston moves up for Skoronski, who can play guard and tackle and probably do so for a really long time in front of Young. And the Texans still would have a bucket of picks left.

    33. Houston Texans: Luke Musgrave, TE, Oregon State

    1. Bears - Jalen Carter
    3. Raiders - CJ Stroud (*Projected trade: No. 3 for Nos. 7, 38, 142 and 145)
    4. Colts - Will Levis
    5. Seahawks - Will Anderson Jr.
    19. Bucs - Anthony Richardson

    Wouldn’t hate this but I’d rather take Mayer at 12 keep Howard at RT and draft some G/C help in the middle rounds. If Mayer is as advertised then he’s a great security blanket for Young. Elite TEs (Kelce, Kittle, Gronk, etc.) really lift an offense.

    Throw money at defense in FA and you could tune this around very quickly.
