The NFL Draft is always full of surprises. Whether it’s Brady Quinn waiting in the green room seemingly all afternoon in 2007, or the Minesota Vikings letting time expire on their pick in 2003, it always creates memorable moments. This time, the first big moment was a trade between the Houston Texans and Ariz

And, we had one early on in this draft. Alabama Quarterback Bryce Young went first overall to the Carolina Panthers as expected. But, the fireworks started at the 2nd pick, where the Houston Texans had lots of options. They decided to go with Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback CJ Stroud.

Many wondered what the Houston Texans would do with their second first-round pick, 12th overall, but they decided to trade with the Arizona Cardinals back into the third pick in a major surprise.

Wow! What a move. They went with Alabama edge rusher Will Anderson. Anderson has been considered the best defensive player in college football in the last two seasons.

And, the NFL world was lit on fire by the trade.

So, it seems the trade is unpopular. But, if Will Anderson develops into one of the game’s best pass rushers as many believe he will, it will definitely be worth it.
