Houston Texans will receive more draft picks for Deshaun Watson than originally reported
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the compensation in the Watson trade has changed, and it benefits the Texans.
This now includes an additional 2022 4th-round pick that was not included in the initial trade agreement between the Browns and Texans. https://t.co/pw8LHmRVIL— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 21, 2022
The Texans will now receive a 2022 4th round pick that wasn't originally in the deal, and instead of sending a 5th round pick to Cleveland, the Texans will now send a 6th round pick (2024). This tweak to the trade should make Texans fans happy. Many fans were a little disappointed that the Texans would only get one extra pick from the Browns in the 2022 NFL Draft. They were hoping to jump-start the rebuild with several extra picks in this year's draft. So this is a great development for the Texans, and it makes the upcoming draft even more exciting for fans. Plus, the trade package looks a little better for Texans GM Nick Caserio. The Texans now hold multiple picks in these rounds of the 2022 NFL Draft. (1st, 3rd, 4th, 6th).
