According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Houston Texans have traded a 6th and 7th round draft pick to the Patriots for their 5th round pick.

The New England Patriots had two 5th round picks (No.158 and No.170) and the Texans had three 6th-rounders (No.183, No. 205, and No. 207).

Field Yates is reporting that the Texans will receive pick 170, and the Pats will receive picks 183 and 245.

This trade helps the Texans, as they did not have a pick in the 5th round before the trade. The Texans now have a pick in every round except the 7th, and have multiple picks in the 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 6th rounds.

This week, we react to Laremy Tunsil's absence from Houston Texans OTAs and wonder if he really loves football or if he just loves what football provides him. Tunsil was given more money in the off-season after reworking his contract, and this is coming off a season when Tunsil was only supposed to miss four or five games after suffering a thumb injury in October. But Tunsil missed the rest of the season, which had many fans and media scratching their heads.

Finally, because of Tunsil's apparent disinterest in being with the team, it might be time for the Texans to trade Tunsil, and get something in return before likely cutting him next off-season.

Check out the video to watch the full conversation.
