Brownsend up getting the top two picks in 2018 draft

If the Texans lose out, the big winner in that situation would be the Browns because they currently hold the rights to Houston’s 2018 first-round pick as part of the trade that allowed the Texans to draft Deshaun Watson back in April.

Since strength of schedule is the tiebreaker, it likely won’t matter if the Bears and Buccaneers both finish tied with the Texans at 4-12 because a weaker strength of schedule is what gets you a better pick and Houston will likely have a weaker SOS than Chicago and Tampa.
