Point taken although it must be remembered that Young and Boselli were products of the expansion drafts and were done to provide cap relief for the Jets and Jaguars so that we might have other players like Aaron Glenn and Gary Walker. McKinney, Pitts and Weary were from Texas A&M, San Diego St. and Tennessee respectively.

The new OL was crafted from other team's free agent second-stringers and small-school projects. In that sense, we've added guys from Alabama St. and Northern Illinois to the group - hardly inspiring. To be fair, Rankin last year was from Mississippi St. and Su'a-Fila was from UCLA.

Not sure we haven't beaten this subject like J.J. Watt against a seventh-round rookie.

Hey, I wanted to let you guys know that I am writing a book that is going to be published soon. In addition, I have started posting videos on YouTube. I sort of started this project/process here with "My Guys" and decided to turn it into a blueprint for how I would build an NFL Franchise. You can follow me on Twitter @PFGMRx or watch my YouTube channel @ PFGMRx. Thanks for your support. - Roy Pickett

Thanks, Keith.

My book is scheduled to be published on 9/16/19. I start off by describing how I was pulled into this when the Texans drafted David Carr #1 instead of Julius Peppers. Then I describe how I would put together a franchise....

"If you have ever played the video game ‘Madden’ on GM
mode or submitted lineups for your weekly Fantasy Football
team, then you have entertained the notion that you might
know what it takes to run an NFL Franchise. In my case, I was
a high school teacher in Conroe, Texas when the newly formed
Houston Texans came into existence and decided to draft one
David Carr. My students asked me who I thought the new team
should select, and without hesitation I declared that Julius
Peppers was the best player available, and within this context
of a team starting from scratch, that was exactly the philosophy
General Manager Charley Casserly should have taken. It was
apparent to me as a casual observer, that Julius Peppers would
be successful sacking opposing Quarterbacks almost
immediately, and without the need to have talented teammates
surrounding him."

Default Another Excerpt

"The Dolphins are up at number 13. If I were running the
Texans, I would be calling to see if I could trade up and select
Andre Dillard to play LT and protect Watson. It remains to be
seen if the Miami Dolphins would be willing to take numbers
23 and 54 at this point. Perhaps the Dolphins would be happy
to stay at number 13 and select Haskins or Locke. The
Dolphins have many needs, so trading down is an option.
However, if they believe their future QB is here, I could
understand why they stay and make their selection. The
Dolphins take Christian Wilkins. I was hopeful that he would
slide to number 26 for my Colts, but it was not meant to be.
Maybe the Colts will be able to get Murphy, Baker, or
Lawrence."

Default Last thought on the draft for the Texans in the 1st Round

"Next up is the 21st pick for Seattle, who has just paid their
QB, Russell Wilson, and traded away their DE, Frank Clark.
They could choose to protect Wilson with an offensive tackle,
or fortify the defense with an end like Montez Sweat. However,
the Seahawks are lacking in draft picks and have many holes to
fill. So, with that, the Packers give up the 30th pick and two
fourth-round picks to move up to the 21st. Who will the new
regime take? Could this be a weapon for Aaron Rodgers,
perhaps a blind-side protector at left tackle? The Packers select
... Darnell Savage. The Texans should have offered number 23
for a third- and a fourth-round pick, just to guarantee Andre
Dillard’s services, but they may be keeping their fingers
crossed that he continues to fall.
The Texans let out a huge sigh of relief. Potentially, the
Packers could have traded up ahead of Houston at number 23
to take one of the best offensive linemen in the draft. However,
the Packers were more concerned about the Eagles taking
Darnell Savage before he fell to number 30.
The Eagles trade up with the Ravens, giving up a fourth
and sixth rounder in the process. The experts claim that the
Eagles are wanting to find their running back, but the offensive
tackle could be in play here. Taylor and Dillard are the two top
LTs available. Now that Savage is off the board, perhaps the
Eagles are looking for help at defensive back. With the number
22 pick of the 2019 NFL Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles select
… Andre Dillard.
The Texans are up next at number 23, and they should be
disappointed that Dillard is off the board right now. However,
Jawaan Taylor and Cody Ford are still available for the taking.
My top picks on the big board are Jawaan Taylor, Deandre
Baker, Greedy Williams, Byron Murphy, Montez Sweat, D.K.
Metcalf, and Cody Ford. The Texans should take Taylor, but I
could also understand taking a CB at this spot. Again, it is a
punch in the gut for the Texans to see Dillard drafted one pick
before they were on the spot. The Houston Texans select Tytus
Howard from Alabama State. He is 6’5”, 322 pounds, and
showed well at the Senior Bowl. He has potential, but I
considered him a second-round draft pick. I find it very
interesting that Jawaan Taylor is still on the board at this point,
when he was considered a top-three OT in this draft. Yet the
tackle from Alabama State is drafted before Taylor, who
played in the SEC."
