Houston Texans Team Needs
By: Jason Chernofsky

The Texans, as we all know, will have their choice of who to pick, as they select first overall this season. Many believe Reggie Bush, as he is considered far and wide to be the best player in this draft. I am not saying this won't happen, just saying that one should not be so sure. Domanick Davis is more than capable as a starter, and in just 36 career starts, he has 735 rushes for 3024 yards, not to mention over 150 career catches for 1276 yards. Not the best RB ever, but for a 3rd year player, he has been rather good. All that has been done behind a rather poor OL this year. And, let's not forget Vernand Morency and Tony Hollings, both of whom provide solid youth and depth. Johnathan Wells, the current backup, will likely leave via FA, but those two are very solid players with solid potential. I just don't see the need at RB, in fact, it's probably the strongest position on the team.

Logic may say that the pick would be D'Brickashaw Ferguson, an OT out of Virginia, and they should work on rebuilding their OL, although, I very well could see them trading down in order to compile more picks and fill more needs. This isn't to bring down Bush, raise up Ferguson, or anything of the like. I just can't see a team with so many pressing needs drafting a player where they have no real need. Sure, Davis has small injury issues, and Bush is an amazing talent, and I am not saying they shouldn't draft him, just pointing out that it isn't a set pick yet.

...although Steve McKinney may not need to be upgraded at C, as he has been rather solid, every other player can easily be upgraded.

...Chester Pitts...may be the worst starter in the NFL at his position....I could very well see the Texans cutting him and saving a few million dollars.

Wow, what an expert.

Unless your posting this for laughs, this is useless. About the only thing this gives insight to is that this person plays Madden, because McKinney is our best OL in Madden...

This guy knows nothing about the Houston Texans. This is like getting an outside opinion of the Texans needs from a guy who lives in outer Mongolia and who's never seen a game of American football.

He said "Steve McKinney" and "rather solid" in the same sentence and he wasn't joking. Thanks for posting it YoungTexanFan but sadly he just doesn't seem to know much about his subject matter.

I didn't want to read something this lengthy, so I immediately scrolled down to the Chester Pitts section to see if the rest was worth reading. I can tell a lot about someone's knowledge of the Texans based on his/her opinion of Pitts. That one section saved me from reading the rest of the article.

Of course, comments made about McKinney in these replies made me go back up and read his section, which was too funny.

One thing I do agree with - if one of those 3 TEs drop, which is probable since TE usually drop (look at HMiller going to Pitt last year), it would be hard to not take the one that drops.

But, there are a lot of OL that will be hard to pass up there also.

Agreed. I laughed at much of his comments, but found a few to be fairly close. Luckily, it is not from one of my "trusted" draft sites, nor from my own opinion.

I think ive seen that article somewhere before.

Whatever the case.. I think that that guy writes his articles and just leaves blank spots at all the places where a player's name is supposed to be. Then he takes a hat and fills it full of the names of all the starters on the roster.... you get the point.
