Skip & Shannon strongly react to latest report of Houston Texans considering the unthinkable

Tuesday on Undisputed, Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe react to a recent report from Peter King about how the Texans are approaching the NFL Draft. King discussed in his Football Morning in America column that he believes the Texans are considering the idea of passing on QB at No. 2 overall.

“It’s a stretch, but I could see Nick taking Anderson, then using his second [first-round pick] and trading back up to get his quarterback,” one league personnel man said.

King makes the case that Nick Caserio is a conservative GM, and he won't force QB at No. 2 unless he really loves the prospect. In this scenario, the Texans would take Alabama edge rusher Will Anderson and address QB later in the draft. Possibly with Kentucky QB Will Levis.

King does say he thinks it's more likely than not that Cal McNair and the Texans land a new franchise QB to excite the fan base, but you never know.

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?
