Texans take Davis Mills in third round

Deshaun Watson‘s availability for the 2021 season is very much in the air and the Texans have added a quarterback to go with Tyrod Taylor in the event Watson isn’t around.

The Texans didn’t have picks in the first two rounds, but they used the 67th overall pick to take former Stanford quarterback Davis Mills.

Mills was seen as a second-day prospect and went into Friday night with the best odds of being the first quarterback taken. Kyle Trask and Kellen Mond came off the board before he did, but he lands in a spot that could offer a quick path to a starting job if Watson is out of the picture come the start of the regular season.

Mills played 14 games at Stanford and threw for 3,468 yards, 18 touchdowns, and eight interceptions while completing 65.5 percent of his passes.

  1. I would hate to get drafted into that whole Watson debacle, but it may well get him on the field faster than anywhere else.

  2. It’s not easy being a Lions fan, but then there’s Texan fan to make you feel better. I feel for you guys. I know better than anyone what it’s like watching a clown show. Davis Mills? That’s your answer to the Tunsil trade and Watson debacle?

  3. Pretty sure Watson won’t “be around” this season. It’s a shame for Houston. I’m thinking Watson gets placed on the Commisioner’s Exempt list where he, Watson, will still be paid his salary but not count against the Texans 53-man roster. Good thing DeShaun will still be getting paid ’cause all those lawsuits are going to cost him some big bucks to settle.
