Houston Texans

Perfect draft pair: Alabama OT Cam Robinson (Round 1, pick 25); Florida S Marcus Maye (Round 2, pick 57)

Jeremiah on Robinson: Offensive line seems to be the way the Texans need to go in Round 1. I think Robinson finds his home at right tackle. I think he can be a long-term starter and an upgrade there for Houston. When he's at his best, you see his power and the punch he possesses. He can lock guys down. Robinson gets caught off balance at times, but he has a chance to improve and become a really good player.

Brooks on Maye: Maye can shore up the safety position for the Texans. He's one of the few players who has the ability to play the pass but is also active at the line of scrimmage against the run. This would be a terrific find for Houston.

On the Move the Sticks podcast, former NFL scouts Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks break down the latest news and action around the league from a scout's perspective, alongside NFL player personnel executives.
