Offensive Line

Here are the offensive linemen on the Texans 53-man roster — center: Chris Myers, Ben Jones; guard: Xavier Su’a-Filo, Brandon Brooks; tackle: Jeff Adams, Tyson Clabo, Derek Newton, Duane Brown.

Of course the best offensive linemen on the Texans is Pro Bowler Duane Brown, as he is one of the best left tackles in all of the NFL, not just the AFC.

At 6-4, 303 pounds and at 29 years old, Brown still has some quality years left in his career. Last season, he made 14 starts and was the anchor of the Texans’ offensive line. He played well, not his best season, but very well to become a Pro Bowl selection.

The right tackle spot must improve for the Texans, and the interior o-line play needs to be better as well, as the o-line of the Texans allowed 40-plus sacks in ’13.

Myers at center is another positive for the Texans, as he, along with Brown, bring the needed veteran presence to the Texans’ o-line.

One player that will be interesting to watch is Su’a-Filo, whom the Texans drafted at guard with the first pick of the second round of the ’14 NFL Draft. He had a great career at UCLA; now it will be time for him to take the next step in his football career.

Su’a-Filo will eventually be a big part of the Texans’ offense.
