Did I mention that Aldon Smith has a pretty good chance of becoming a Houston Texan if they stay put at No. 11 overall? Well, he does. A roundup through this morning's mock drafts has Smith as the odds-on favorite to be a Texan by the end of the night if a trade up for Patrick Peterson doesn't occur. Whether it's local or national, it seems like Smith is a dead lock to be a Texan if they use their pick at No. 11:
So at this point, if you're a Texans fan and you believe all the rumors, which of course you would because it's not like the Texans made a pick that was totally out of left field last year with Kareem Jackson, it seems entirely likely that the team will wind up with Aldon Smith if they stick at 11. Good times? I'm going with no. But the Texans just might sneak in someone completely under the radar. You can't ever count them out.
