In the 2013-14 season, the Houston Texans took a major step backwards. From Super Bowl contenders to No. 1 pick, the Texans simply fell apart. That's exactly why the 2014 NFL Draft is so important to the team, as they must be sure to address their needs correctly.
That said, ladies and gentlemen, a ranking of the Houston Texans' five biggest draft needs.
Last season, the Houston Texans’ offensive line was absolutely atrocious. Allowing way too many sacks and way too many pressures, there is no doubt that the offensive line should be a top priority for the team.
The Houston Texans are a team that is dedicated to the run game, and the offensive guards are a big part of making that strategy work. That said, the guards currently on the roster simply are not getting the job done, and it’s obvious that an upgrade is needed at the position.
Brian Cushing is a fine, young inside linebacker, however, the other inside linebacker position is cause for concern. If a player like Shayne Skov or Chris Borland is available after the first round, the Texans would be wise to pull the trigger.
One of the weakest positions on the roster, the safety position is reason for concern on the Texans’ defense. However, in a draft that has plenty of starting prospects available in the later rounds, the Texans would be wise to make it a priority.
This is an obvious one. Matt Schaub is gone, and while I like Case Keenum’s game, new coach Bill O’Brien isn't as sold on Keenum. Chances are, the Texans are going to take a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick, and it’s hard to argue with that strategy.
