2023 NFL draft: Full 7-round mock draft for the Texans

The Houston Texans currently hold 12 picks in the 2023 NFL draft. While it’s unlikely they will end up making all those picks, we went through all of them in this full seven-round mock draft.

This draft hits all the major needs of the Texans including a franchise quarterback and a top target for him to throw to. This mock also hits both sides of the line of scrimmage hard with guys who can come in and play right away.
