    Just wondering what the feeling of the board is on the job Mitchell has been doing at NT?

    He seems to get a bit of pressure and penetration at times.

    What says the board?

    Adequate at best against the pass .... Really missing Cody against the run.

    I'm thinking Cody is gone in FA and there's definite room for improvement over Mitchell. I think it's a 1st or 2nd round draft need. Mitchell is decent depth but he's not capable or ready to own the NT position himself.

    Losing Cody and Cushing literally tore the heart of this defense to shreds.

    Our top Draft priorities are OT and WR. Period.
    Why shouldn't the Texans be the team that rewards Cody with a new contract if they can ascertain that he's that important to our defense ?
