Houston Texans Draft Picks 2018: Recap & Analysis

Houston Texans:

Pick Team Player Pos School
68 Texans Justin Reid S Stanford
80 Texans(f/Seahawks) Martinas Rankin OT Mississippi State
98 Texans Jordan Akins TE Central Florida
103 Texans Keke Coutee WR Texas Tech
177 Texans Duke Ejiofor DE Wake Forest
211 Texans Jordan M. Thomas TE Mississippi State
214 Texans Peter Kalambayi OLB Stanford
222 Texans Jermaine Kelly CB San Jose State

Analysis: Since the Texans had no 1st or 2nd round pick, I’d say they did a great job, as they added some players who should come in and contribute right away, on defense, with Justin Reid, Duke Ejiofor, and Peter Kalambayi. They also added some weapons for DeShaun Watson, in Jordan Akins, Keke Coutee, and Jordan M. Thomas. Plus they added Martinas Rankin, who can play Tackle and Guard. All in all, the Texans did a great job.
