2012 NFL Draft: SB Nation Grades The Houston Texas

The Houston Texans targeted a replacement for Mario Williams with their first-round pick Whitney Mercilus, and for that selection and the rest of their draft, they earned a B- grade from the SB Nation roundtable.

While the pick of Mercilus received positive feedback, the group was not too high on the receivers the Texans selected to line up opposite of Andre Johnson.

The sense of the division as a whole was that running backs will dominate the offense for all four teams in 2012.

For more on the Texans' choices as well as the rest of the NFC South's draft, check out the video below.
