    Will it be Connor Barwin? Antonio Smith? Amobi Okoye?

    Inquiring minds want to know!

    I am going with Barwin. I think this year he puts up 8-10 sacks as a situational pass rusher for us. Especially if the coaches let him line up at OLB every now and then.

    I think Smith and Okoye are hampered by rushing from the interior. But I am hoping that they collapse the pocket so Mario and Barwin can clean up after them!

    Mario Williams.

    That's right I'm pulling for a dark horse sack leader this year..... Okoye!!

    I'll go with Barwin. If Cush was there for all 16, I think he would get it.

    Antonio Smith.

    The guy has been looking like a BEAST this pre-season. Nobody's really been talking about him but he's looking a lot better than he did last year.

    Agreed. Smith gets second place with 1.5 sacks less then Mario. Our D-Line is bringin' the fear this year!!

    Good question. I'm realistically hoping Barwin or Smith. I hope not Cushing. I'm hoping the front four can generate enough pressure so that Bush doesn't have to call too many blitzes.

    In spite of being suspended four games, I think Cushing will be the second most sacker on the Texans. Barwin is not a starter so I think that hampers his ability to rack up sacks.

    My top 5 sack predictions:

    Mario Williams- 12
    Connor Barwin- 8
    Antonio Smith- 6
    Amobi Okoye- 5 1/2
    Brian Cushing- 4

    Okoye will have a big year, but Smith has been playing out of his mind during the preseason. I guess it will matter how much he is playing on the interior line on 3rd downs, as that will probably decrease his sack totals.
