Clearly hitting target @ WR is a priority.
Improved OL pass pro & run blocking.
Disruptive penetrator @ nose tackle.
Playmaking ILB next to Cushing.
RDE to bookend Watt & rotate with Smith to retirement.
OLB to replace Barwin (would rather see money invested elsewhere).
Those are your principle building blocks to Texans future success, IMO!
I dont at all disagree with the list of needs ... Just dont think you can solve all those issues in one draft. They have to hit on a cheap FA or two.
I'd move RDE down to the bottom of the list tho - unless they cut Smith.
QB .... I'd move to the top of the list if the rest of the team wasnt as good as it is. As it stands now , I think you have to run with Schaub and put him in the best possible situation for the coming season.
Next season .... I'd like to find his eventual replacement. Just not sure there are any franchise types coming out in 2014.
