2020 Draft

2 (40). Ross Blacklock, DT, TCU 3 (90). Jonathan Greenard, LB, Florida 4 (126). Charlie Heck, T, North Carolina 4 (141). John Reid, CB, Penn State 5 (171). Isaiah Coulter, WR, Rhode Island

Additions/players brought back:
RB David Johnson (via trade)
CB Bradley Roby (re-signed for three years, $36 million)
WR Randall Cobb (signed for three years, $27 million, $18.75 million guaranteed)
Ka’imi Fairbairn (re-signed for four years, $17.65 million, $9 million guaranteed)
TE Darren Fells (re-signed for two years, $7 million)
QB A.J. McCarron (re-signed for one year, $4 million)
Losses:
WR DeAndre Hopkins (via trade)
DI D.J. Reader
CB Johnathan Joseph

2020:  Make no mistake... DeAndre Hopkins' departure is huge.  And it will affect QB DeShaun Watson.  Bringing in Randall Cobb will ease the blow a bit, but it's trading a Porche for a Datsun.  The Texans will lean more heavily on the Run, and David Johnson will help in that arena.  The D was lackluster last year, and there isn't much reason to think that will change in 2020, a bad omen in a division with the upward bound Titans and Colts.

Projected 2020 Record: 8-8-0
