However, Smith said that the Texans had not yet decided whether they would use the pick or use it as a trade, with a week to go before the Draft begins.
"I absolutely know who I want," Smith told Fox Sports. "Now where the game is played is if there's an opportunity to move and, in this case, obviously to move back if somebody else wants to come up to that first pick.
"Then you weigh what the opportunities are versus who the individual is that you want to take and what that value is relative to the value that somebody might be offering you."
The Texans finished last season with a 2–14 record.
