As expected, the Day 1 of the 2023 NFL Draft had no shortage of action whatsoever.

There's a lot more where that comes from but you get the gist. Simply put, the fans were not expecting the Texans to make this big a splash in the NFL Draft, and they have left social media absolutely stunned.

In exchange for the No. 3 pick, the Texans have sent the 12th overall pick to the Cardinals along with the No. 33 pick, a 2024 first-round pick, and a 2024 third-round pick. Houston has also received a fourth-round pick from Arizona as part of the deal.

The Texans have just set themselves up for quite a season ahead with a new star quarterback in Stroud and a defensive stalwart in Anderson. Incoming first-year head coach DeMeco Ryans has been hinting all along that this is Houston's plan in the draft, and boy has the team delivered.
