    War Room scouts and Texans' correspondent Megan Manfull offer their analysis from the NFL draft:

    Overview

    The Texans bolstered their needy defense, which finished 22nd in the league last season, with their top two picks and five overall. USC LB Brian Cushing and Cincinnati DE Connor Barwin will add athleticism and pass-rush ability to a defense that has struggled to make big plays.

    After that, the Texans stuck to their philosophy of taking the best available athlete. They didn't draft a running back to complement Steve Slaton, but they did draft two tight ends: N.C. State's Anthony Hill and Rice's James Casey. Tight end was not an area of major need, but the picks will add versatility and depth to the offense and special teams.
