Texans settle for Kentucky QB Will Levis in ESPN mock draft


The Houston Texans want Bryce Young, but so do the Indianapolis Colts.

According to Matt Miller, whose latest mock draft appeared in ESPN, the Colts trade with the Chicago Bears to take No. 1 overall in the 2023 NFL draft. Indianapolis then uses that selection to take Bryce Young. The Colts give up their 2023 first- (No. 4 overall), second- (No. 35 overall), and fourth-rounders along with a 2024 third-rounder to pick first.

The NFL trade value chart as compiled by Drafttek shows the Bears' pick is worth 3,000 points, and the Colts' 2023 selections presented are about 2,400. That means the 2024 third-rounder has a point value not listed on the chart that makes up the difference.

With Young off the board, the Texans go ahead and take Kentucky quarterback Will Levis.

The Texans use their other first-round pick (No. 12 overall) to take USC receiver Jordan Addison, and then grab Utah tight end Dalton Kincaid in Round 2 (No. 33 overall).
