The Houston Texans are No. 1!
Only not the way they wanted to be.
The Texans locked up the first overall pick in the 2014 draft Sunday with a 16-10 loss at Tennessee, meaning they lost their final 13 games — along with Coach Gary Kubiak, who was fired Dec. 6.
The No. 2 pick goes to St. Louis via Washington. The Redskins traded that pick to the Rams as part of the 2012 deal to draft quarterback Robert Griffin III.
So the Rams traded the No. 2 pick two years ago and received Washington’s picks in the first (6th) and second (39th) rounds in 2012, first (22nd) in 2013 ... and the No. 2 pick in May.
Not a bad deal for St. Louis.
