The mock drafts around the internet will start coming out at a furious pace and many will be looking at who the Houston Texans could possibly be selecting. The Mock Draft Muncher that we use helps pull mock draft information from some of the most influential sites on the internet.
With over 50 versions of mock drafts already recorded and “munched" into the system, we give the top three current selections that the muncher has kicked out for the Texans.

Top Three Picked for the Texans in the Mock Draft Muncher
3rd Place (3 selections)
Analysis: Declaring early for the draft, Ryan Ramczyk went from a Division III transfer to the Wisconsin Badgers starting left tackle. From the NFL Advisory Committee, Ramczyk received a first round grade that helped him make his decision. The 6’6" left tackle is set to possibly be the first offensive tackle selected in this year’s draft and if Ramczyk is there at #25, the Texans should be running up to the podium with the selection.
2nd Place - Tie (4 selections)
Analysis: It is no secret that the Texans want secondary players in every off-season to continue replenishing one of the most important position groups in the NFL. With a safety like Gabriel Peppers. they could finally get some youth at the position and not be forced to cut a check to Quintin Demps for the upcoming season. Peppers has been touted as one of the most versatile players in the draft but at this moment. the Texans would only need him to hone his craft at safety.
A dream scenario for the Texans would be if they did not have to trade up and lucked into seeing one of the more intriguing quarterbacks of the draft fall to them at pick #25. Deshaun Watson's pedigree is well-noted and the season he had for the Clemson Tigers, which ended with a National Championship, has pushed him into the front of this year's quarterback class.
1st Place (5 selections)
Analysis: One of the most gifted defensive ends in the draft, Malik McDowell, comes out of Michigan State with the skill set to play in a 3-4 or 4-3 defense at the end spot. He has shown that he can be a play maker from the interior of the Spartans defense or off the edge in pass rushing situation. His versatility is the key and, with questions remaining on the defensive line over depth and how J.J. Watt is going to come back from his back issue, McDowell would make sense for the Texans at this spot.
Wait There is More.....
WHAT IS THIS? The Mock Draft Muncher uses a computer algorithm to look at the most popular players selected at each draft position in order to create a consensus mock draft. It first looks at the most popular selections in mock drafts and picks them if they are available. If the first several selections at a particular position are not available, the algorithm assigns an available player to the team based on (1) low average draft position and (2) top team needs.
The simulator Has the Texans selecting.....
Analysis: The Texans could use a player like Cameron Robinson at right tackle to help improve their offensive line. There should be no issue with a selection like this. If you take a look at the simulator, Utah's Garett Bolles is taken the selection after Robinson, and Boiles could be an even better prospect than the Alabama offensive tackle. Either way, the Texans would be in good shape if the simulator played out this way on draft night.
