2022 NFL Draft: Updated Week Eleven Draft Order
How bad is it really when the Houston Texans’ biggest win of the season so far came on a week off?
Well, at least we’re not all Detroit Lions Fans …
Fortunately, with the Pittsburgh Steelers inability to completely end a winless and ill-fated Detroit franchise, your Houston Texans are only half a game away from 1st place in the 2022 NFL Draft Prize draws.
1. Detroit (0-8-1)
2. Houston (1-8)
3. New York Jets (2-7)
4. Jacksonville (2-7)
5. Philadelphia (via Miami, 3-7)
Most important needs: QB, OL, WR
Opponent of the week 11: among the Titans
CG: Pro Football Focus ranks the Texans at the bottom of the NFL for running blocks and 27th for pass blocks. It’s a unit that could be completely renovated by next season, and the project should be a big part of it.
And, the mock drafts are renewing themselves for those of us who have no hope of postseason glory. This time around, the focus seems more than ever to be on the linemen.

MICHIGAN • SR • 6’6 ”/ 265 LBS
Hutchinson has an NFL body with high caliber athleticism and an arsenal of quick moves like most veterans. This could be the first of a host of top picks for the Texans if they can trade Deshaun Watson this offseason.
2. HOUSTON TEXANS – Evan Neal, OT, Alabama
I’m of the opinion that Houston will want to add more to their young core before they really find their next franchise quarterback (sorry, Davis Mills). Neal, like many other offensive linemen in this class, has experience in several positions along the line (LT, RT and RG). Incredibly athletic and talented Neal would form a formidable tandem against Laremy Tunsil.
2) Houston Texans: Andrew Booth Jr., CB, Clemson
The Houston Texans have so many needs, it’s hard to know exactly where to start. Their biggest need is clearly the quarterback, but like the Lions above them, they avoid this murky class early on. This second global selection is also a prime destination for a wide receiver. Still, it’s a bit early to pull the trigger for a wide receiver here.
It’s fair to say the Texans need a complete overhaul. Clemson Andrew Booth Jr. gives Houston a playing cornerstone to lay the groundwork for a new defense. The athletic cornerback plays fiercely while being a fluid athlete. Additionally, Booth has exceptional ball skills for a defense that has allowed a 5.5% touchdown on passes this season.
And, if you’re really looking for something to do other than work while you’re at work today, Pro Football Focus has a pretty neat draft simulator that lets you move teams in draft order and down. see how the players fall based on the order you set.
