Coach Bill O'Brien has done his best with a laundry list of ho-hum passers, but if Houston plans to play at home in Super Bowl LI, the time is now to find a high-octane arm.
With the No. 22 overall pick, Houston's too far down the list to have its pick under center, but at least one of Mike Mayock's top-five quarterbacks -- Carson Wentz, Jared Goff, Paxton Lynch, Connor Cook or Dak Prescott -- should be available.
There's also a scenario where Penn State's Christian Hackenberg could reunite with O'Brien, who coached the 6-foot-4 passer as a Nittany Lion in 2013. We're months away from finding out, but the message is clear: The Texans aren't sitting still at the most important position in sports.
