The Texans are trading for Miami Dolphins LT Laremy Tunsil and WR Kenny Stills, according NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Houston gets the left tackle it needs to protect Deshaun Watson's blind side, and a wide receiver to add depth at that position after making cuts to its roster Saturday.

Here's former Texans offensive lineman Wade Smith breaking down some Tunsil film Saturday night:

Had to give the people what they want.My Film Review of Laremy TunsilI thoroughly enjoyed it. Some thoughts...- DW4 has a new bodyguard for the prime years of his career. It will allow him to flourish- Tunsil was the best LT in his class and it shows. He’s now a #Texan pic.twitter.com/fgEWgkKaeI

The Dolphins get two first-round draft picks in the trade, Rapoport reports. He said Texans players are headed to Miami in the deal as well. The Dolphins get cornerback and special teams player Johnson Bademosi and offensive lineman Julien Davenport in the deal.

Earlier in the day, the Texans traded Jadeveon Clowney to the Seattle Seahawks for a third-round pick.

All of these moves depend on the players passing their physicals.
