    Good list overall. Good luck to Luck living up to the hype and trying to replace the legend that is Payton Manning. Living in Houston, I find your choice for the Texans curious. The Texans are very solid on the offensive line….can’t see spending a first round pick on an offensive lineman. I’m thinking receiver…someone to replace Jacoby Jones who has been underwhelming as the second receiver. Plus Andre Johnson is great receiver but has been injury prone lately. Another top flight receiver in the mix would be a nice addition.
