Let’s take a look at who experts think could be in the mix to go number one overall in our Houston Texans 2023 Mock Draft Tracker.
The 2-13-1 Houston Texans have secured the number one overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. Another less-than-stellar season for the Texans, this time, under veteran Head Coach, Love Smith. Will the Texans give Smith one more season to right the ship in Houston or will the club move into a new era, alongside, hopefully, for the Texans, drafting their franchise centerpiece during this coming April’s draft.

Bryce Young, QB, Alabama
A five-star college prospect following a four-year stint at Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, California, Bryce Young committed to the University of Alabama.
In 2020, Young played sparingly during his Freshman year, appearing in seven games for the Crimson Tide as Mac Jones’ backup. Young threw for 156 yards with one touchdown during his sporadic appearances in garbage time for the Tide.
In 2021, Young took over the helm as the starter in Tuscaloosa and bust onto the scene as the Sophomore signal caller played in all 14 of Alabama’s games, tossing for 4,491 yards to go along with 45 touchdowns while adding 273 yards on the ground en-route to securing the coveted 2021 Heisman Trophy. Unfortunately for Young, he and the Tide would come up short against the Georgia Bulldogs in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game after the Tide handed the Bulldogs their first-loss of the season in the SEC Championship Game the prior month.
Last season as a Junior, Young missed a handful of games with an injury but that didn’t stop him from putting up terrific numbers as he’d throw for 3,325 yards while tossing 32 touchdowns and added 306 yards on the ground, capped off by a dominate Sugar Bowl victory over the Kansas State Wildcats in what would be Young’s final game as a member of the Tide.
