How Texans No. 12 pick just got really interesting (and somewhat controversial)

The Houston Texans have an opportunity to draft one of the top QBs in the draft with the No. 2 overall pick. Assuming they do exactly that, and draft either Bryce Young or CJ Stroud, what should they do with the No. 12 pick?

Georgia defensive lineman Jalen Carter has been falling down draft boards after being charged with drag racing after the National Championship game. And this week, Carter caught more criticism for being nine pounds heavier at his pro day, than he was at the NFL Combine. Plus, Carter appeared out of shape at his workout.

If Carter tumbles down the draft board, he could be a great value for a team like the Texans from a football standpoint.

Which made us question if Carter's reported character issues would keep him off the Texans draft board.

And if so, which player or position should the team look to address with their second first round pick?

Be sure to check out the video above as the guys discuss the likelihood of the Texans drafting Carter, and why a WR would make a lot of sense for Houston at No. 12 overall.

With reports popping up about the possibility of the Indianapolis Colts making a trade for Lamar Jackson, we discuss how he would change life for the Colts and how that would impact the Houston Texans.

Plus, would the Colts be better off with Bryce Young or CJ Stroud? And better yet, would the Texans be in a better situation with Jackson over drafting a rookie QB?

Also, it's crazy to think that the Texans trading Deshaun Watson could be the catalyst that lands Jackson in Indy.

Be sure to check out the video above as we lay it all out!
