Default Texans preview:NFL draft Blitz

Gary Kubiak’s massive undertaking in rebuilding the Texans has made significant strides this off-season. The obvious big news is the departure of David Carr and the trade for Matt Schaub. Many Texans’ fans were upset with the price the Texans paid to acquire Schaub but it is critical for the team to move forward at the quarterback position. Carr was obviously not going to work in Houston. They could not find a trade partner because of the salary still owed Carr.

Houston was fortunate not to give up a first round pick in getting Schaub but they now have only six selections in the draft. They figure to try and acquire more picks on draft day. I cannot envision a scenario in which the Texans would try and trade up. There are very few areas on the team that could not use improvement and so “the best available player” makes sense for the team.

The Texans are set at quarterback for now. Schaub seems to be fitting in well and there is an excitement about his leadership skills. Sage Rosenfels is a quality backup. The team will likely sign an undrafted free agent to compete with Bradlee Van Pelt and Quinton Porter for the third slot.

The offensive line is an area that Houston must upgrade. They signed Jordan Black as a free agent to provide depth at offensive tackle. If Levi Brown is available at ten the team will seriously consider taking him. If Charles Spencer is able to make it back he could move to the right side with Eric Winston moving to guard. If the Texans do not take an offensive lineman in the first round they will certainly address the position later in the draft. In addition to tackle they could use an interior lineman who could play center or guard.
never really thought of Spencer as a guard.. but what do I know

Spencer played left guard at Pitt as a junior. Was a LT as a senior and a DT as a freshman & sophomore. Pretty versatile guy.

I think he was saying to move Winston inside to RG, with Spencer at RT. But, I think that could be reversed as well, as I think Spencer (if healthy) could be a pro-bowl caliber RG in time.

As far as summaries of the Texans position that is probably the best I have read.

What it screams though is that the Texans have needs everywhere. Makes you realise how far the team still has to go. However I do believe that we are heading in the right direction.

I would love to get secondary help in the first round.
(which gives me an excuse to break this out)
