Then we will spend the 3rds on a blocking TE like Dion Sims, and a smallish NT like Jordan Hill or Chris Jones. Thus helping us continue to tread water rather than take significant risks on players or make changes that might put us over the hump.
I wish I could be as optimistic as you all, but this team has a formula that hasn't really changed in years and I don't expect it to any time soon.
I think if they take any defensive player in the first round it's going to be a pass rusherm but I'm not entirely sold that there's going to be a pass rusher the Texans really want at #27. I'm not entirely sold on your point that they use a formulaic approach that involves always going defensive in the top of the draft, I think the holes in the roster in previous years have just fallen that way come draft time.
