The 2019 NFL Draft concluded on Saturday afternoon, so naturally, it's time for the 2020 mock drafts.
The Houston Texans Mock Draft Survey, Version 1, checked out 10 of the most prominent mock drafts from around the media landscape. Four of those 10 experts had the Texans taking a running back next year in the NFL Draft, while three had Houston going with defensive help in the front seven. A pair of defensive backs and an offensive tackle rounded out the first mock survey for 2020.
The only player mocked to Houston multiple times next year was Clemson running back Travis Etienne, who was slotted to the Texans by The Sporting News and USA Today.

In 2019, only two mocks had the Texans taking offensive lineman Tytus Howard from Alabama State. Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News and Maurice Jones-Drew from the NFL Network correctly predicted Houston going with Howard. The leading mocked player to the Texans was Oklahoma offensive lineman Cody Ford, who lasted until the second round.
The next version of this won't appear until just after next season ends.
The 2020 NFL Draft will take place next April 23-25 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
