It was made evident in the Texans wildcard playoff game that they are desperate for a quarterback. Brian Hoyer failed miserably on the biggest stage of his career and his long term future with the team looks cloudy. Picking 22nd in the first round many mock drafts have the Texans taking Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliot. Other mock drafts have the Texans taking a quarterback. A possible move I see the Texans making is to take a position of need or draft the best player available in the first round and then trade up if needed in the second round to draft Penn State’s Christian Hackenberg.

Before he was hired as the Texans head coach, Bill O’Brien was head coach for the Penn State Nittany Lions. The quarterback for O’Brien in his last season at Penn State? Christian Hackenberg. It is no coincidence that Hackenberg had his best season when O’Brien was still head coach. O’Brien could be looking to reunite with his former five star recruit and provide the Texans with long term stability at the quarterback position.
