How latest bombshell could significantly shift Houston Texans draft strategy

NFL Draft experts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay recently stated that this is one of the weakest drafts in recent memory. And according to McShay, he only sees 14 prospects worthy of a first-round grade.

Kiper said that typically he has 125-130 draftable players in each draft, and he's struggling to find 80 in this class.

Considering this new insight, should the Texans alter their draft strategy to account for the lack of talent in this year's class? This appears to be a top-heavy draft, and the Texans have 11 total picks this year, with 5 in the top 73 overall.

If the team agrees with Kiper and McShay's assessment on this year's crop of talent, trading up or even trading some of this year's picks for selections in the 2024 NFL Draft could make a lot of sense.

Plus, could Colts owner Jim Irsay have a relationship with the Bears that could give the team an edge over Houston in the Bryce Young sweepstakes?
