Needs: QB, OLB/DE, RT
The top need for the Texans is obviously a franchise quarterback, but there are other areas of need as well. Luckily, the Texas have the top pick in the draft and could secure their future franchise quarterback or take South Carolina’s Jadeveon Clowney and pair him with J.J. Watt coming off the edge. The team could also use another offensive tackle and some secondary depth, but edge rusher and quarterback are the biggest needs here.
I’m torn on whether or not the Texans and new head coach Bill O’Brien should target a quarterback at the top of the draft of wait until the second round. I don’t think Case Keenum is the long-term answer under center, but with a guy like Clowney in the fold, the team’s defense could be incredible.
No. 1 – Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina
No. 33 – Xavier Su’a-Filo, G, UCLA
No. 65 – C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE, Iowa
No. 83 – Louis Nix III, DT, Notre Dame
