Texans Morning Huddle – 5/8 Edition


Happy Friday Texans fans! The weekend is just a few hours away and what better way to pass the time during the day (not that any of us would spend work hours reading about the Houston Texans) than to catch up with what is happening in the world of our favorite team. So let’s see what is going on with the Texans;

5 Positions Houston Texans Must Still Address Before 2015 Season – Jeffery Roy of Bleacher Report

"Throughout the roster, the problems run deeper than individual positions. They extend to entire position groups. The offensive line is just one of five position groups in need of assistance. The only source of hope is that the front office will find even more than the 12 free agents who contributed to the team’s winning record in 2014. Here is a look into each uncertain position and what it lacks."

Quessenberry’s younger brother trying out for Texans – Drew Dougherty of Houston Texans.com

"Paul Quessenberry, a defensive end, is David Quessenberry’s little brother. The older Quessenberry is an offensive lineman with the Texans. The younger Quessenberry was a three-year letterwinner at Annapolis, and in 2014 he finished with 8.5 tackles for loss."

Texans’ minicamp puts rookies on display – John McClain of the Houston Chronicle

"Coach Bill O’Brien and his staff get their first look at the Texans’ draft choices and undrafted free agents at the rookie minicamp Friday when they spend the first of two afternoons on the practice field at Methodist Training Center."

AFC South draft grades: Texans closing divisional gap on Colts – Bucky Brooks of NFL.com

"The Texans deserve kudos for executing a draft strategy that allowed them to land three players who carried first-round grades on various boards across the league. Kevin Johnsonand linebacker Benardrick McKinney are pegged as immediate starters. Both guys bring solid skills and impressive football IQs to the table, and the Texans’ highly regarded defense shouldn’t skip a beat with a pair of youngsters occupying key roles in 2015. Jaelen Strong gives the team a big-bodied pass catcher to line up opposite DeAndre Hopkins."
