- Houston, you have a trade.
The Texans are sending Pro Bowl quarterback Deshaun Watson to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for three first-round picks, a future third-round pick and a fourth-round pick. In return, Watson and a fifth-round pick are headed to Cleveland.
Watson, 26, did not play in 2021 due to legal entanglements, but still remains one of the top QB talents in the NFL. In 2020, Watson led the NFL with 4,823 passing yards and an average of 8.9 yards per pass while tossing a franchise-record 33 touchdowns.
As for Houston, it looks to the future in rebuilding the franchise in a new image. With 10 total picks in the 2022 draft — and perhaps more via trades — the rebuild can finally begin.
Things will change once the Texans fill out the roster in free agency, but for now, here's TexansDaily.com updated seven-round mock draft with the new picks.
