The draft obviously won’t go in the exact order of any website’s rankings, but to avoid guessing on availability in the late rounds, I will go by the list from CBS. As long as a player is ranked within three spots of the Texans pick, I will consider them available. Some players were selected a little early, but since I’m not factoring in trading back (endless possibilities), I had to choose between taking them early or losing them to another team. Note…
