Texans Draft Needs

by Samantha Previte

  • WR: The Texans have done next to nothing to strengthen their receiving corps since the departures of DeAndre Hopkins and Fuller. Their current depth chart includes oft-injured Brandin Cooks, Randall Cobb, Coutee and Chris Conley. They will likely miss out on the top tier prospects without a first-round pick.
  • DL/LB: In addition to the high-profile departures of Hopkins and Fuller, the Texans also lost linebacker J.J. Watt this offseason and have yet to fill the void left by Clowney after the 2018 season. The team’s porous defense allowed the most rushing yards per game (160.3), the ninth-most passing yards per game (256.5) and had the fifth-worst turnover differential (-9) in the NFL.
  • OL: Houston’s offensive line allowed the third-most sacks per game (3.1) behind only the Giants and Eagles. The Texans will have to make major upgrades at the position, regardless of which signal-caller starts come September.

  • WR: Will Fuller signed with Miami after posting career-highs with 4.8 catches, 79.9 yards and 0.73 touchdowns per game last season — a hole that cannot be filled by the likes of holdover Keke Coutee and free-agent acquisitions Chris Conley, Alex Erickson, Chris Moore, Andre Roberts and Donte Moncrief.
  • OG: Max Scharping graded out in the 14th-percentile among guards last season while Cole Toner and Hjalte Froholdt have combined for three starts in seven seasons.
  • C: Justin Britt turned in below-average center play in 2018 and 2019 before failing to crack a roster last season.
  • DT: Maliek Collins, Charles Omenihu, Brandon Dunn and Ross Blacklock all failed to crack PFF’s top 100 interior lineman last season.
