Houston Texans want three 1st round picks and a 2nd for the #1 pick

The Houston Texans are willing to trade the first overall pick, but it seems like they are not going to get what they are looking for.  According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, when a team with a Top 10 pick contacted the Texans to ask what it would take to trade up to No. 1, the Texans responded that it would take what Washington packaged to move up and draft Robert Griffin III two years ago: Three first-round picks and a second-round pick.

“The Houston Texans said, ‘If you want our pick, it’s three number ones and a two,’” Glazer said. “When RG3 was traded, that’s what they got. . . . But, no. No one’s giving up three number ones and a two.”

That trade was not a great pick for RG3, because with the new CBA, the first round pick is pretty cheap compared to the previous years. I cannot see any team willing to give up three first rounders and a second for any player in this draft.  If it was an Andrew Luck type of player, I would be more than happy to do that, but not for a Jadeveon Clowney who took off quite a bit of plays his senior year at South Carolina.
