CDTShareTweetShareShare2019 NFL Draft: Houston Texans Post-Draft TidbitsNew Texans Special Teamer Cullen GillaspiaJohn Glaser-USA TODAY SportsAmidst all the polarized opinions on how the Houston Texans and Brian Gaine handled the 2019 NFL Draft, we can find several pieces of information to get the wheels turning. First up, the firing of a scout right after the draft is often a “where there’s smoke, there’s fire” scenario.In this case, someone literally was fired: Aaron Wilson (via Chron.com):If the Houston brass privately believed what they were publicly saying, scouts would be getting grandiose accolades, not terminations. Read into this what you will. Next up, the character angle.On and around the days of the draft Arian Foster Color Rush Jersey , we continually heard “height, length, strength,” but we all too often forget with Houston, it’s often all about the character aspects.Brian Gaine, on first round pick Tytus Howard (via APNews.com):In Howard’s post-draft press conference, he was already spouting the now infamous “I’m just looking to be the best teammate I can be” mantra, which means he’s bought in. Gotta love that. (A fullback from Harvard?) Another unheralded tidbit is about seventh round fullback Cullen Gillaspia. While many NFL teams don’t even field a fullback Jose Altuve Color Rush Jersey , and Houston rarely does either (and didn’t even have one last season after keeping Jay Prosch on the roster for several years), Gillaspia was drafted due to his high character and love of special teams. Gillaspia reportedly broke off an interview with multiple members of the press during the Senior Bowl to race off and participate in special teams drills with so much exuberance it was as if he forgot the media was even there. With Houston’s vast improvement on special teams last season, Gillaspia might just be another piece to the ST improvement puzzle that eluded Houston for so long. While looking at this draft class pragmatically, on the surface it hasn’t painted a pretty picture yet - but when you dive deeper and start examining the details, hope really can spring eternal.Have any grains of hope you’ve encountered in your post-draft analysis? Have a tin-foil-hat laden theory about Houston firing a scout right after the draft? Let us know in the comments box. Your streaking Houston Texans (8-3) will be gunning for their ninth (NINTH!) win in a row Sunday against the steadily-improving Cleveland Browns (4-6-1) at NRG Stadium.The Texans are going to have to be weary of an emotional letdown after an emotional and overwhelming victory against those soft clowns from wherever on Monday night.Houston best not sleep on this Cleveland team, especially with yet another divisional home game on the horizon next week against the Colts.Let’s just see how the staff sees this one playing out, shall we?Chris:Texans 27, Browns 24.MDC:Texans 27 Julien Davenport Color Rush Jersey , Browns 17.Titan Matt Weston, Slanderer of Blade Runner and a Huge Fan of the Texas Rangers:Texans 20, Browns 16.Mike Bullock:Texans 38, Browns 17.BFmf’nD:Browns 24, Texans 16.Capt. Ron:Texans 24, Browns 21.Kenneth L.:Texans 19, Browns 17.Looks like we are (mostly) in agreement this will be a close one.Great.I have gotten to where I expect to be sweating while sitting on a couch at 3PM on a Sunday afternoon. How do you see this one going, BRB?I’m curious to see if the overall feeling is on trend with ours Tyrann Mathieu Color Rush Jersey , a close victory, or are you a well-adjusted, healthy person who allows yourself to believe the Texans can simply blowout a seemingly-inferior team at home?Use the comments section below to predict Sunday’s game and perhaps to comfort my mushy, nervous football brain.
