Nose Tackle: This is the only weakness in Houston's front seven. The team needs a new nose tackle. Players who fit Wade Phillips' scheme possibly available in the second round are Josh Chapman and Brandon Thompson. The Texans also need defensive end depth, but acquiring a new nose tackle will allow Earl Mitchell to move outside.
I still do not understand this. We were the #2 ranked defense, #3 against the pass, #4 against the run.... Wade repeatedly says he doesn't need a big guy to play the nose. Wade says his NT will play the 1 gap... will be a penetrator.
