Houston Texans Day 3 2014 NFL Draft Primer

The Houston Texans added three more players to their roster on Day 2 and have started to develop a pattern with their draft strategy. Going back to first-round pick Jadeveon Clowney, all four of the players the team added are big, physical players who will make their impact near the line of scrimmage.

The Texans also added Xavier Su'a Filo, who was the second-rated offensive guard on most boards; Louis Nix, who many boards had rated as a first-round talent at nose tackle; and C.J. Fiedorowicz, who projects as mostly a blocking tight end in what was a bit of a surprise.

Of the three picks on Day 2, I really liked two of them—Nix and Su'a Filo. I think Fiedorowicz is a solid player who will fill a role as a blocking tight end in multiple-tight end formations, but in my opinion, it was a bad value pick as a need that could have been addressed later in the draft.

Going into Day 3, the Texans still have many needs to fill, which I will go into over the next few slides. But they will have fewer picks to address them after trading up for Louis Nix.
