I've been very bullish
on the Ray Rhodes hiring from the outset. He's done outstanding things in his career as a defensive coordinator and definitely has the credibility to influence the Texans young secondary.
During the draft, Rhodes was given the assignment of evaluating the safeties, so I would expect him to continue to focus on that area of the secondary.
Rhodes' real value lies in his ability to mentor players and coaches alike. His influence, regardless of how long he stays on the coaching staff, should serve this team well for years to come.
