Texans General Manager Nick Caserio said on Wednesday that the team is almost certainly going to stay put and make a selection with the third overall pick on Thursday night.

Caserio offered less of a guarantee when it came to the 13th overall selection. Caserio said that he’s talked to teams about trading up or down from that pick, which the Texans acquired in the Deshaun Watson trade.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the team is looking at trades up the board as the start of the first round draws closer on Thursday. Schefter reports that the Texans are exploring a move back into the top 10 if the player they want is available.

There’s no word on how far back up the board the Texans would be willing to move or what player they may be eyeing, but we’ve heard plenty of chatter about teams wanting to move down and the state of Houston’s roster keeps almost every position in play heading into the first round.

  1. They should explore playing in one of the new football Leagues.

  2. I still think there is so much varied talent at most positions that one doesn’t need to move to get help. Almost always the top ten picks are the best players who can contribute day one, but this year that spreads all the way to the end of the first. Teams just need to know, their homework has been turned in and they dam well better have done it right. Pick the wrong guy this year and you really scewed yourself of what could have been.
