One could argue the Houston Texans could add talent at just about any position aside from left tackle. With the 2022 NFL Draft just a few weeks away, the Texans have several options with the third overall pick. Recent comments by coach Lovie Smith suggest a cornerback could be in play, could Ahmad Gardner be the top player on their board?

 

Lovie Smith’s comments suggest Texans are CB hungry

Many have thought the Jacksonville Jaguars and Detroit Lions may look to improve their pass-rush effort with the top two picks in the draft, just before the Texans get on the clock. This may work out just fine in the grand scheme if coach Smith’s comments are to be taken seriously.

“Well, we’re looking at the roster right now and you see who we have there and you also see our play at the cornerback position,” Smith said. “Our play at the cornerback position last year was not good enough. It’s as simple as that. If we brought somebody back, we have faith in them. We think they can fit into the mix some kind of way. But that’s a position we’ll continue to look to improve.

“We can’t play the type of football that we want to play until we get better at the cornerback position, I will say that.”
