They're going to have to wear some ugly looking hats.
The theme of the official draft-day cap in 2019? "And once really we get the physical samples of one or two teams, we start to dial in and say 'this is what we thought in our minds and we want to bring this story to life'". But there are still plenty of players in this draft that can help the team in year one. The bar was maybe set too high in 2015, when New Era stitched line art unique to each city skyline on the bottom panel of each hat's brim, which was extremely good. The "1971" marks the year the franchise switched from "Boston" to "New England" in its name and began playing its games in Foxborough at Schaefer Stadium.
In an interview with SI.com, Ryan DiNunzio, New Era's director of football, shared where the idea of integrating local flags with team logos came from for this year's draft day hat.
The results of those flag-based designs have been, well, mixed. As for overall team need, if the Texans draft that way - well, the pick should be either an offensive lineman (preferably an offensive tackle) or they could select a cornerback with the 23rd overall selection.
That means both of our draft experts go 1-64, starting with the Cardinals at No. 1 and ending with the Patriots at No. 64.
