D’onta Foreman drafted in 3rd round by Houston Texans

The Doak Award Winner went in the late 3rd round to the Houston Texans. D’onta probably dropped more than he and Texas fans expected. Blame a deep RB draft, a deep draft overall and the continuing commoditization of the RB position. I love having Foreman in Houston as he’s a nice complement to Lamar Miller. Unfortunately, the Texans OL is composed of tissue paper. He’ll...

The Houston Texans missed out on Patrick Mahomes so they did the next best thing: traded up to the 12th pick and took Clemson quarterback DeShaun Watson. In exchange, the Browns nabbed Houston’s first rounder this year and their first rounder next season. The Texans desperately needed a quarterback, so it’s tough to criticize them for this.

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.
