The NFL draft is a time of excitement, speculation and debate.
Although the Houston Texans' season is still alive after a wild-card victory over the Cincinnati Bengals for the second straight year, the NFL draft is simply too fun of a subject to resist discussing.
After the Texans' incredible 11-1 start to the season, one would think that the team would not need to improve much in the offseason to be Super Bowl contenders in 2013.
The Texans' late-season skid, however, has revealed several flaws on the team that must be dealt with. They have extremely weak depth at inside linebacker and offensive line, and they could certainly afford to beef up their secondary.
We still have many months to go before the draft, and right now, the draft board is about as sloppy as the right side of the Texans' offensive line.
Regardless, mock drafts, at any time of the year, are pure entertainment.
