MAKING THE GRADE
Here are the specific moves that caused the Texans draft grades to vary
The Houston Texans' draft grades seem to be all over the place, with some giving them a solid A, and others handing out B-minus grades.
So why the big disparity? First, the Will Anderson trade caused some evaluators to lean toward a B. Simply because the Texans gave up more than the trade chart suggests for a defensive player. There are a lot of different opinions on this move, because it could be argued that the Texans actually gave up all that draft capital for CJ Stroud.
Meaning, they had to take Stroud at No. 2 to keep teams from trying to trade up for a QB at No. 3.
Polarizing second-round pick
The other reason the Texans didn't receive unanimous A's across the board is the Juice Scruggs pick. The Texans traded up into the second round to land their future center, and while some draft experts like Lance Zierlein approved of the pick, others felt that Scruggs was a mid-round prospect at best.
