Default The Z Report: Texans Top 40 Player Ranking

Quote:
I’ve seen my fair share of lists regarding football players around the league during this long summer and I decided to take a shot at my own list regarding the Texans.

I’ve compiled a list of the Top 40 Houston Texans based on the current roster, but I need to spell out how I decided to rank the players. My rankings aren’t based on overall value to the team or the ratings would start with “1. Matt Schaub, 2. Andre Johnson.”

Instead, I decided to try and rank the Texans as “football players.” I’m trying to decide how good a football player each player is relative to each other and how I come to my conclusions is certainly bound to be different than how you come to your conclusions. What you did in the past only factors in slightly as I’m looking to stack players based on where I think they are right now as players.

Keep in mind that some of my rankings will have players who have “never done anything” ahead of players who have experience under their belt. Oh well. In some cases I’m obviously projecting based on how I think they would play if given the opportunity that others have had. I was surprised at how hard the decisions were for the top 10 and it is easy to see why the Texans made such a big jump from 2010 to 2011 when you see the talent the Texans currently have inside their top 15.


25. James Casey, FB/TE - Casey’s biggest problem is that he’s caught in-between positions. He’s not a true fullback and he’s not an every down tight end. What he is, however, is a football player. Casey will produce at a high level on special teams, but he also has some of the best hands on the team. If his blocking improves in year two as a fullback, Casey could become a huge weapon for Coach Kubiak as he gives the Texans unbelievable versatility with their formations which creates matchup havoc.
Be sure to follow the slide show at the bottom of the page.

Are you sure this wasn't the Bleacher Report? Yates @ #38? Whatever. And I totally disagree that the Texans could win the weak sister AFC South with a 2nd year TJ. The overreaction to Yates game in Baltimore has become absurd.

I agree with you. But it's not a Lance thing.....it's becoming a Chronicle thing.
