Texans have a golden opportunity to outperform in this years draft but they won't. Too timid to do what they need to. Example...trade the great player but over hyped Clowney pick to get their trading partners 1st and second and more if they can. Use the first to take that stud from Buffalo and use their two seconds to take the best available players to rebuild a formerly stout defense. Then in the third round get a first round talent with a trade to the Patriots for Mallet. Still the strongest arm in the league with a few years of seasoning like Hoyer who took the Browns to a 3-1 record before getting injured. If Hoyer can take the Browns to 3-1 surely Mallet can duplicate that with a better Texans team. With a .750 win percentage they just might contend for their division and still have picked up that beast of a defensive player Mack who is a better fit for their defense than Clowney, and walk away with another starter, 2nd round pick in the Clowney trade to go along with still another 2nd round pick and Mallet at QB. Belichick will be pissed he didn't get a second rounder for Mallet but his loss is the Texans gain.
To recap trading Clowney/first round pick will result in a better defensive fit with Mack and get the Texans another second round pick or more.
Picking up Mallet gives the Texans a better QB with more training and under a quality Coach and QB (Brady) than any of those first year guys in this years QB draft and all for a third pick while the other QB needy teams are letting the quality non-QBs guys go by, giving the Texans more bang for the buck, when they do pick. Could be the best draft ever for the Texans if only they do their homework. Hope they don't wait too long, Minnesota, Oakland, Cleveland, JAX, Tampa Bay and a few others may be starting to figure it out as we speak. And to top it off, the Texans new head coach once coached Mallet and uses a similar system so coming on-line should be relatively quick. Of course he may think that one of these QBs is worth Mallet and Mack and the second rounder they could pick up for a Clowney trade. Nah, no one could be that foolish, or could they? After all, look at his decision to coach at the college he did under strange circumstances. Decision making may not be the Texans strong suit. Makes it that much easier for the Colts. Here is to hoping.

When Brady shuns you, you can always crush on his backup.
