We added Jordan Black and lost Zach Wiegert (OTs), and our first 4 draft picks were Amobi Okoye, Jacoby Jones, Fred Bennett, and Brandon Harrison.
So was it the offensive line, or was it the QB (Schaub/Rosenfels vs Carr)?
In 2007, Carr took 13 sacks in just 136 attempts for Carolina, a ~10% sack rate. Transposing to 2007 Texans attempts, that would've been 51 sacks.
You'd better draft
pocket presence, because its darned near impossible to teach at this level.
