    Houston Texans (8-8 in 2007)

    Head Coach: Gary Kubiak (Third Year)

    Key needs: 1. Running back 2. Cornerback 3. Defensive end

    1. Running back: The Texans will look to add a top feature back and draft into the deep running back class. They should have a chance at one of the top three RBs at pick No. 18.

    2. Cornerback: Their emerging defense needs to add another top cover man. Houston will explore the free agent market and the draft to add a blue-chip player.

    3. Defensive end: The front four could be one of the best in the game with a pass rusher opposite Mario Williams. The Texans will consider one fairly early in the draft.

    no arguement from me, but what it does suggest is the national viewpoint is the Texans lack a great RB & that this draft has a couple resonable options to address that lack of having a great RB.

    I get the feeling most of us here, anyway would be truely shocked if the Texans where to draft a RB this year @ #18. OT & RB are more likely if the Rick trades down. if we stay @ #18 Smith likes one of the CB options :)
