Being realistic was the fundamental focus of this collaborative effort. Then it became a balancing act between talent & need. Forcasting what the Texans will do....priceless.
Kubiak just extended along with Schaub. The rushing attack & protection packages must be upgraded (RB 2nd. OL 3rd.) The defense could use more speed in the secondary along with playmaking skills (CB 1st.) while they can't continue to spend big
on defensive ends or tackles via free agency or the draft solidifying group as a whole with a sleeper prospect who can compete will be more evident than his draft grade (DT 4th.) Upgrading depth w/potential starting material from the 5th rd. on would be a huge get as well. I'm scared to death to lose Andre Johnson due to injury or see teams game plan to limit his playmaking ability. Jacoby had a breakout year, but Walters, Davis & Anderson have been dissapointing, targeting a find @ WR early as possible would be wise (5a.) Another multi-positional LB for at least depth purposes supports the core group in case of injury (5b.) The 6th is a round the Texans seems to grab OG/Centers (Studdard/Myers) Austin (6th.) may make more sense to replace Myers in a couple years than Caldwell? Special teams return specialist is needed, so Jacoby can really focus on becoming a starting WR (7th.)
