The Houston Texans have eight draft choices for the 2021 NFL draft.

They may trade back and add more picks. They may trade up and have a small draft class, similar to last year’s five-man draft class.

Regardless, the Texans will be adding newcomers from the college ranks, and first-year coach David Culley has a message for the youngsters.

“We’ve got a wonderful opportunity for you here,” Culley told ABC 13 [KTRK-TV]. “We’re building something special here. It’s a wonderful organization with wonderful people.”

ABC 13 will be airing an exclusive interview with Culley during their 10:00 p.m. newscast following the channel’s coverage of the NFL draft.

“I love being here in Houston with the Texans,” Culley said.

Culley will have to cultivate that same motivation from the rest of the roster, including the Texans’ new draft class. Houston finished 4-12 in 2020, firing coach and general manager Bill O’Brien after an 0-4 start. With new general manager Nick Caserio in the front office and Culley on the sidelines, the Texans are hopeful they can turn the page to a more optimistic and victorious era in Houston sports.
