How latest smoke around Anthony Richardson could impact Houston Texans draft strategy

NFL Network draft expert Daniel Jeremiah caught a lot of fans and media off guard recently when he shared some of the info he's been hearing around the league about Florida QB Anthony Richardson. According to Jeremiah, some teams have Richardson ranked as the second-best QB in the draft.

And with that in mind, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler said he's hearing some teams see Richardson as a combination of Cam Newton and Justin Fields. Fowler can't remember a bigger variance with a prospect, as some teams have first round grades on Richardson, and others are giving him a fourth-round grade.

Many in the league believe Richardson could develop into a quality QB, especially if he's able to sit and learn for a year before being thrown into action.

Are the Texans in a place where they can wait a year for a QB to develop, or would drafting Richardson eventually cost GM Nick Caserio his job?
