Report: Maybe the Texans still will do a deal for No. 1

Firefighters converge on the Logan County wildfire near Guthrie, Oklahoma Reuters

As we noted a few hours ago when it was reported the Texans were “locked in” on the top pick and didn’t expect a trade, it was far too early to call that.

And now, amazingly since nearly four hours have passed, things may have.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, there’s still a chance of a deal with the Texans for the top pick, and that talks could pick up when they’re on the clock.

Well, yeah.

If the Texans want to make a deal, they should wait until the very last minute to see if someone blinks and gives them a Robert Griffin III-type haul for the choice.

And until then, you can’t be surprised if someone does.

    Oh it will be a giant surprise if someone goes RGIII on the Texans.

    There just isn’t that player in this draft, and RGIII’s failures made the whole league think twice.

    One hour, then the madness will stop.

    So an expert insider tells us that a deal may still happen?? Amazing. These guys are talented. I would never have guessed that a deal could still happen before the team actually picked.

    It’s really funny to see teams still falling for the old “backup QB scam”. When will they ever learn?

    If they take Mack it will be chaos. Other than Barrett Jackson Scottsdale, this is the best thing on TV!

    .

    If the Texans acquire Mallet, then they have addressed their most pressing need. Then, they’re playing with the house’s money and can make any move they choose.
