Draft Grade: Fingers Crossed
Houston got put in a bad situation in the first round, where offensive tackles were snagged ahead of them. They might have panicked a bit with Howard, a promising tackle prospect, but by no means a guy they can plug in there immediately and expect a high level of play.
They did add Scharping late in the second, and he might actually have a better chance to start at left tackle before their first rounder. He is experienced and technique sound.
Lonnie Johnson was a great value at 54 and fills a big need they had at corner.
Getting Omenihu in the 5th could be an absolute steal. They probably weren’t targeting that position at that spot, but the value was just too great.
