Ian Rapoport lays out how drafting Davis Mills could impact a possible Watson trade
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport joins Rich Eisen to discuss if the Texans drafting of Stanford QB Davis Mills means the team is ready to move on from Deshaun Watson and trade him. Drafting a QB in the third round wouldn't be much of a red flag in most situations, but with the Texans 3rd round pick being their top pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, and the uncertainty regarding Watson's legal troubles, Eisen finds it hard to believe that the Texans aren't looking to trade Watson when the right moment presents itself.
Finally, Rapoport mentions that many teams have told him that the quality of this year's draft wasn't very good once the middle of the draft came around. Meaning, the Texans may not have felt like they could get a quality starter at a skill position so why not take a flyer on a QB?
