Houston Texans 2023 Mock Draft Roundup 1.0
Throughout the year and leading up to the 2023 NFL Draft, we will update our Houston Texans Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Houston Texans from several prominent sites and draft analysts.
The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Texans:
The Athletic - Dane Brugler (5/3)
1. C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State
The most impressive quarterback prospect I saw last season was Stroud, who made substantial strides with each game as a redshirt freshman. There is no question he benefits from Ryan Day's play-calling and the elite talent around him, but Stroud still needs to make the throws, and his understanding of anticipation and touch make you sit up in your seat.
24. Sedrick Van Pran, IOL, Georgia
The fourth Georgia Bulldog prospect in this mock, Van Pran is the least known of the group, but that should change soon. After redshirting in 2020, he started all 15 games at center last season and put himself on the NFL radar.
Draft Wire - Luke Easterling (5/3)
1. C.J. Stroud, QB, Ohio State
If the Texans are picking this high, the Davis Mills experiment has likely failed after a second season. Stroud has all the tools to be a franchise quarterback, and next year's No. 1 overall pick.
23. Malachi Moore, CB, Alabama
The Texans simply need as much overall talent as possible, regardless of position. Moore is a rangy, athletic, versatile safety who would give them another much-needed playmaker on the back end of the defense.

ESPN -- Rank: 32
Player who benefited most from draft: QB Davis Mills
Yes, the Texans used their top draft pick on a defensive player, but they certainly upgraded around Mills on the offensive side of the ball as well. Houston's second second-round pick was guard Kenyon Green, who should slide right into the Texans' starting lineup. The Texans also added wide receiver John Metchie III on Day 2 and running back Dameon Pierce on Day 3. Houston is slowly improving an offense that ranked 30th in Football Outsiders' DVOA. Mills might not be the Texans' long-term answer at quarterback, but general manager Nick Caserio is certainly setting him up for more success in 2022. -- Sarah Barshop
NFL.com -- Rank: 28
Deshaun Watson is mercifully someone else's responsibility, and the draft represented the official reboot of a new era in Houston. The team laid the foundation with nine draft picks in Vegas, starting with cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. with the third overall pick. More instant starters were added next: offensive lineman Kenyon Green (No. 15 overall), defensive back Jalen Pitre (No. 37) and wide receiver John Metchie III (No. 44). Metchie will be catching passes from second-year man Davis Mills, who notably found no new competition entering the quarterback room from this draft class. Mills was a pleasant surprise as a rookie, and the Texans appear committed to giving him a real chance to cement his status as Watson's successor.
