Tonight, the 2022 NFL Draft finally kicks off with the first round. The Houston Texans pick at 3rd and 13th overall and are set to launch the franchise forward in a new direction after the departure of former franchise quarterback Deshaun Watson. In addition to Houston, seven other franchises will potentially pick twice on Thursday. The number of teams with two first round picks should make for a round full of trades and vertical mobility as teams work to secure the top prospects on their boards. After two months of extensive draft coverage, here’s the Texans Wire’s first and only full first round mock draft.
