Okay, let's do this.

Rules:
Each Poll will last no longer than 24 hours (or as near as I can)
Run-offs will take place where the two top vote getters are not from the same position group, where there is no clear leader of 15% of the vote share, unless the vote leader has more than 40% of the vote share
I will post a link to the poll in each team's forum

Poll Choices
Prospects on each poll will come from the CBS prospect rankings list, but I will welcome nominations for the each poll. This is to try and prevent complaints about poll choices.
http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/prospectrankings

I will endeavour to fill all slots and do so in alphabetical order. Draft needs of teams will be considered and override the prospect rankings in certain situations.

Please contribute to the discussions within each poll and give reasons why you voted the way you did if you can. Your vote should be based on who you would pick and not a prediction of who they will select.

Off-season Transactions (AKA 'The Wild Ride'):
April 13, 2017 Released C Tony Bergstrom. Waived LB Gerald Rivers.
March 14, 2017 Re-signed TE Ryan Griffin.
March 10, 2017 Re-signed P Shane Lechler and K Nick Novak.

Key losses:
CB A.J. Bouye
OLB John Simon
QB Brock Osweiler
G Oday Aboushi
ST/S Don Jones

Texans Needs
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/sports/wp/2017/04/12/2017-nfl-draft-the-biggest-needs-for-every-afc-team/?utm_term=.cf2632c47f1f

QB: The trade of Osweiler didnít precipitate this need; the play of Osweiler in 2016 did. Tony Romo, a potential free agent target, chose broadcasting instead. That leaves Tom Savage and Brandon Weeden. Savage had some solid moments as a starter late in the season, but not enough to win over the city of Houston.

RT: Thereís no guarantee that starting right tackle Derek Newton can make it back from suffering not one, but two knee injuries on the same play. Kendall Lamm could be a young player to watch at this position, but right tackle is still a need.

CB: People in Houston panicked when Bouye took the money and ran to Jacksonville, but 2015 first-round selection Kevin Johnson returns, as does Johnathan Joseph. That said, the Texans play a ton of nickel and dime. As such, there are three corners, or two corners and a nickel, on the field a majority of the time.

Other needs: OG, Edge (depth), DL (depth), ILB, TE

I made a case for why I thought Watson should be considered at #23, but him getting to #25 would be a steal in my eyes. I think that Houston would be an ideal landing spot for him: top tier D, a true #1 WR in Hopkins, and Lamar Miller at RB.

I think the CB class is deep enough to land a difference maker in year one in round 2, and I've said it before I'm not big on the value that the OT class presents in round 1.

This should be a no brainer.

They'd be pretty happy to have the pick of the two QBs

I see somebody else voted T.J. Watt with me.... at least, I know I am not alone in the insane asylum.

Sorry but Watson nor Kizer does it for me for a 1st round pick. It's not as if either guy is projected to be Aaron Rogers - which I would gladly do a 1st for. Kizer has potential to be a long term NFL starter, but you could say that in regards to the top 5 - 7 QB targets this year. For some reason when I see DeShaun Watson I get flashes of Josh Johnson and even Akili Smith.

So I would go with the production, bloodlines, metrics, measureables, and just good ole fashioned hunch that TJ Watt will be special like his brother.

Watson. They get watson and they set up a great divisional rivalry for the next decade as the other 3 teams in their division have good young QB's.

Overall Houston has a window with Watt, they can't afford to wait on the QB position yet again. For me, I'm not sold on Watson or Kizsr, but I think Kizer has upside that I don't see from Watson. My choice is Kizer.

I would go Kizer

But for this example I went Watson. He sucks but I think he's good enough to make it one or two years which is all Houston needs.

LOL once again CB isnt a huge need for the Texans. Especially not a need that warrants them taking one rounds 1-2. Joseph, Jackson and Kevin Johnson was starting ahead of him anyway.

Anyway I am going with Cam Robinson. Not a fan of Kizer and Watson at QB. Robinson can be a plug and play starter at RT for us. Aside from QB, RT is our biggest need.

I don't think Cam Robinson is plug and play in most teams.

I don't think he's a plug and play in Seattle, a team starved for offensive line talent.

He's my third EDGE/DE in this draft. This guy is a top 10 pick with one more season of college play. Even though he's a wildly different player from Clowney, his role on a 3-4 is somewhat similar (great at setting the edges against the run, lacks polish and development rushing the passer).
