It’s no secret that the Houston Texans are a rebuilding franchise.
They recently hired DeMeco Ryans as their head coach and will look to improve mightily under his tutelage.
This morning, a Texans insider was active on Twitter, retweeting a hopeful message for the team heading into the NFL Draft in April.

The Texans fanbase has been begging for a new quarterback, and it looks like their wish might just come true.
Deshaun Watson was traded to the Cleveland Browns ahead of the 2022 NFL season, a detriment to their roster.
Watson didn’t play for the Texans in 2021 either.
Once he was traded, the team was left in the hands of Davis Mills and Kyle Allen.
As a result of inferior quarterback play, the Texans finished the season with a record of 3-13-1, which left them with the number two overall pick in the draft.
It appears that the Texans will be taking a quarterback with this pick.
The good news for Texans fans is that this year is said to be filled with potential franchise-altering quarterbacks.
Players like C.J. Stroud, Anthony Richardson, Will Levis, and Bryce Young have been touted as likely first-round draft picks.
The Chicago Bears are unlikely to draft a quarterback, given the emergence of Justin Fields last season.
Unless the Bears trade out of the number one spot, the Texans will have their pick at any of the best quarterback prospects.
