How unexpected maneuvers could extract even more value on Houston Texans draft night

One of the most exciting and highly graded players in the NFL Draft is University of Texas running back prospect Bijan Robinson. The thought of the Texans lining up with Bryce Young and Robinson this season, would certainly appeal to a lot of Texans fans.

But others would see Robinson as a luxury pick, based on the position he plays. The Texans already have Dameon Pierce and signed former Bills running back Devin Singletary to a 1-year deal. And let's face it, the Texans have a lot of holes to fill on the roster.

However, there are some reasons to believe the Texans may have interest in Robinson at the right point in the draft.

Be sure to check out the video above as John Granato and NFL Draft analyst Lance Zierlein share their thoughts on Robinson and his fit with the Texans.

The Houston Astros haven't counted on their catchers to deliver much offensive production in recent years, with defensive specialist Martin Maldonado being their primary catcher for the last few seasons. But top hitting prospect Yainer Diaz is making a case to get more playing time behind the plate and at first, based on his ability to swing the bat.

Until recently, he hasn't been able to get any meaningful playing time. Even David Hensley, who was optioned to Sugar Land a few weeks ago, has more plate appearances than Diaz this season.

So how does manager Dusty Baker find more opportunities for Diaz? Should he use him more often as a DH, along with getting time at first base and catcher?

And what does that mean for Jose Abreu, Martin Maldonado, and to a lesser extent, former first round pick and Sugar Land Space Cowboy catcher, Korey Lee?

Plus, considering how good the Astros outfielders have been this year, does the team need to grab another bat before the trade deadline?
