The Houston Texans have announced their full coaching staff for the 2019 season. Houston will have an offensive coordinator this season and it will be Tim Kelly, who was formerly the tight ends coach for the Texans. Will Lawing will take over for Kelly as the new tight ends coach. Houston's quarterbacks coach for the 2019 season will be former Seahawks assistant, Carl Smith. The Texans will also bring back a familiar face with the hire of former Houston quarterback T.J. Yates, who will now be an offensive assistant. Other coaching positions are filled by Mike Devlin (OL), John Perry (WRs), Danny Barrett (RBs), and John Aylward will be an offensive assistant.

On defense, the Texans are bringing back another former player with Akeem Dent being named a defensive assistant. The coaching staff on defense will stay intact, and the Texans are also bringing back special teams coordinator Brad Seely and assistant special teams coordinator Tracy Smith. The other most notable move was the hiring of Brian Cushing as the assistant strength and conditioning coach. Click here for a full list of the coaching staff.

What will the Houston Texans do in the NFL Draft? A new mock draft from ESPN’s Matt Miller has the Texans making two surprise picks, including a bold selection at QB!

In this scenario, the Colts trade up to No. 1 and draft Bryce Young, with the Texans selecting QB Will Levis at No.2 overall.

Based on this scenario, the Colts didn't have to give up that much draft capital to go from No. 4 to No. 1. With this in mind, should the Texans trade up to No.1 and secure their favorite QB?

This will be a tough pill to swallow for Texans fans, considering they had the first pick all but locked up heading into the last game of the season.

Be sure to check out the video above as the guys are not all in agreement on this move.
