I picked QB. I'm not totally sold on Shaub yet, mainly due to his injuries.....but besides that, I still don't think he's "the guy that can take us all the way". I have no faith in our new backup. I would have liked to see us go after a decent veteran to fill that void.

Myers.

On goal line situations he gets pushed back like he's on ice skates.

I'm not as knowledgeable on the guys on the offense like I am the defense, but I don't think anything but the the line positions should be getting any votes here. JMO though.

If I had to vote though, I'd go with either center or guard.

I'd like a RB, but one of those might be available in the 4th or 5th.

We can look for a C, and move Myers to G, where he plays best.

Default Re: Texans Greatest Team Need - Offense

Pretty obvious to me we need a legit short yardage back to compliment Slaton. The C and G positions could use upgrades imo... but they will suffice just fine until other priorities are met... and on offense the last true hole is our long term second RB.

Default Re: Texans Greatest Team Need - Offense

I think we need a RB most on offense. If Slaton shares carries with another top notch back then his career will be much longer for it.

On the Oline we can probably make do but if the right guy for the scheme falls into our lap at C/G then surely we wouldn't pass it up.

Far too often, the guards have to help out Myers. Stability is a key part in building a line, but Pitts has to help out Brown and Myers. Brown has shown flashes, while Myers has shown hints that he could someday be a solid starter. I'm not saying it's a dire need, but at WR, TE, QB, OT, OG, and FB we're set. I think we need depth, maybe competition at C more than we need help at RB.

Briesel is a solid guy, I don't know why people want a Guard. Pitts is our best lineman.

1. RB
2. C
3. RG

Not alot of needs, but we have nothing behind Slaton, and if he goes down I don't see Schaub surviving many games where has has to throw the ball 60 times with no running game. A RB who can not only pick up short yardage, but has potential to be a starter will keep not only Slaton, but Schaub healthy.

The interior line is adequate, but not very strong. They get pushed around alot, and can be a liability at times.

make sure that back is a great blocker when he stays in...one of Slatons drawbacks, but I would guess he'll get better at it in his soph year.

I thought Slaton really picked up the blocking later in the season. He was certainly fearless, if sometimes too small. I would really like to see a C or RG drafted. Myers just isn't hardly strong enough to hold the point of attack on pass pro. He seems to do better in run blocking, but could easily be upgraded if we didn't have such dire needs on D.

IF we had a stud C and/or G's that pushed the pile fwd instead of getting pushed back, the RB we have now could convert in those situations

having said that, it would be sweet to have a 1A RB to spell Slaton.

Default Re: Texans Greatest Team Need - Offense

I think it's a toss up between OG, C and RB. I chose OG but I really think they are 1a, 1b and 1c.

Interesting enough, those aren't positions we HAVE to address early in the draft. I do think the more the OL plays together, the better they will get. But I also think Myers and Brisiel would be incredible back ups. Gotta get a guy to pair with Slaton. He's our starter for sure, but the other RB should be getting a decent number of carries.

RB for certain. If Slaton goes down are feature back is Ryan Moats. Give that some serious thought. New Enland is loaded with RB. Trade down in the draft get one in exchange and fill another need via the new draft pick.
