Default PFF -- Houston Texans Secret Superstar

Secret Superstars 2014: Texans
Quote:
Bright spots were few and far between for the Houston Texans in 2013. After a 2-0 start they collapsed to an 0-14 finish and the No. 1 overall pick. On an individual level, aside from the ever-dependable displays from Andre Johnson and the continuing excellence of J.J. Watt, there was little to celebrate.

In search of an unsung hero, we delve into the same area that yielded the Texans’ Secret Superstar in our first foray into the world of the Secret Superstar back in 2011. Three years ago, we highlighted the entire offensive line as the beating heart of Gary Kubiak’s offense, this time around we look at a young player emerging to form a succession plan for an group looking to reclaim its place among the league’s elite.

A third-round pick in 2012...

Thanks for the read. I always liked Brooks, but didn`t notice him as a real plus so far. It seems like our O-line can be quite good or even dominant, if one of our young RTs can actually be serviceable.

Brown
XSF
Myers
Brooks
Quess

Yup, looks good. Add Fiedorowicz and Proesch for blocking services and we should be able to run the ball quite easily, while still having AJ and Hopkins outside if we go play action...

I'm not sure Brooks or Q can do the job. I think Sua-Filo, or whatever his name is, will be a star taking over for Smith. I suspect Fiedo will be a good blocker, and I know Prösch can do the job.

Was thinking about posting a poll whether Wade Smith or Derek Newton needs to be replaced more. But then I concluded that each needs replacement worse than the other. Smith is playing the wrong position. As a left guard he makes a good janitor. Newton is playing a different position. He can best be considered part of the other team's defense. So it seemed important to draft more top O-linemen.

His biggest battle was against his own weight. IIRC he was in Kubiak's dog house at 350 pounds.

Brooks, listed at 6-foot-5 and 346 pounds, is by far the biggest offensive lineman on the team. But apparently the rookie came into minicamp on Tuesday a little heavier than head coach Gary Kubiak would like and he let it be known.
“I did not like what I saw today,” Kubiak said with a not-so serious tone. “He’s overweight and he’s got to get down, but he has a chance to be a good player. Can you send that message to him?”
