2022 NFL Mock Draft: Houston Texans Select…
The 2022 Combine NFL is here this week, in prime time, so everyone can watch the next big NFL players running and jumping this week. With that comes everyone’s favorite thing in the world, draft sims. Widow Peak himself, Mel Kiper Jr., offered his new mock draft entering the 2022 NFL Combine. He selects the Texans:
Evan NealOT, Alabama
It’s an extremely difficult pick to project ahead of free agency, as the Texans have a barren roster with needs in almost every position. And can you believe they’ve only had one first-round pick in all four draft picks before this one? They have a long way to go to compete in the AFC South again.
If Houston is really demolish his list even more, it could mean swapping some key veterans, such as tackle Laremy Tunsil and wide receiver brandin cooks, and trying to add other choices. This opens a hole on the left side for Neal, a big-footed physical blocker. I don’t think the Texans could go wrong with an upside-down pass-rusher Kayvon Thibodeauxneither, but they have to hit the best guy on their board here.
With Ikem Ekwonu and Aidan Hutchinson off the board, the Texans will tackle. After the Laremy Tunsil trade, the Texans continue to invest resources in the tackle position, and in this case select what many consider to be the best player in this draft, Evan Neal.
Another tackle? What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comment section below.
