Football is a year-round sport.

Sure, the NFL playoffs are in full-swing, but we are a society that loves to look to the future.

The NFL Draft is still months away, but it's fun to project who will have their names called this year and next.

Here is a six-pack of Houston high school heroes who have positioned themselves at the college level to have successful NFL careers.

Here are the names you need to know....

2019 NFL DRAFT

Ed Oliver, Westfield, DT, Houston

No doubt Oliver will carry the flag for the city of Houston on Draft Day this Spring from Westfield. He projects anywhere from No. 5 to No. 15. Still has Pro Day and NFL Combine to go, so anything can happen. Great leverage and strength. This draft is loaded with defensive studs, will his stock hold over the next few months?

Hakeem Butler, Fort Bend Travis, WR, Iowa State

Played at Travis his senior year after he moved in with his aunt and uncle. He was from Baltimore, but moved after his mom died of cancer. This dude is HUGE, physical and a great athlete. He's also projecting in the Top 40 picks. Also hooped with the Harrison twins at Travis.

Deshaun Watson will make his Cleveland Browns debut this Sunday against his former team at NRG Stadium. Watson has completed his suspension from the NFL for alleged sexual misconduct with dozens of massage therapists, and this Sunday will be the first game he has played in 700 days.

The Browns sit at 4-7 hoping Watson will be the spark the team needs to stack some wins and get into the Wild Card race. The Texans are still searching for their second win of the season, and many believe the team will be hiring another head coach come January.

With this in mind, who has the worst reputation? The Texans or Deshaun Watson?

It seems like an easy answer with Watson's legal troubles, but upon further review, the answer has to be the Texans. The Texans have hired two consecutive coaches that no other NFL team even interviewed. It seems like no quality candidates have any interest in coaching the Texans. Watson, however, had teams lining up for his services when the Texans decided to trade him.

Be sure to check out the video above as we dive into this topic and make a convincing case, as crazy as it sounds, that Watson is perceived to have a better reputation.
