I think there's a better than average chance that we'll franchise Mario as an OLB after next season. The Texans are going to want to see more than one year of quality production from any player at a new position before offering him a very expensive FA contract. If we were to lose Mario to FA after next season I don't think it makes DE or OLB our highest priority since we just picked up Watt and Brooks. Mario leaving would leave us very thin at those positions and they would need to be addressed in the draft but probably only in the 3rd-5th rounds, quality depth. I see NT, FS/SS, and ILB as our highest priorities next year along with depth at OLB, CB, and FS/SS. I could see us having another almost exclusively defensive draft. We still need some better starters at a few positions but we also need some much better quality depth as well. Bentley is getting old, Sharpton is just to small to play in the NFL, and Barber sucks.
