Three Players Who Will Bring Positive Change To The Texans In 2015

1 of 4

The Houston Texans made a huge turnaround in only one season under the tutelage of head coach Bill O’Brien. They flipped the script from a 2-14 season to a winning record of 9-7.

The best way to follow up a solid rookie season for the new shot caller on the sidelines is to be ranked one of the best performers in the offseason as well. NFL analyst Gil Brandt ranked the team high, saying they had the fourth most productive offseason in the league.

"Wilfork might be entering his 12th NFL season, but I think he played pretty good, all things considered, last year; I wouldn’t say he’s over the hill just yet. Safety Rahim Moore will also help this J.J. Watt-led defense. First-round pick Kevin Johnson (cornerback) and second-round pick Benardrick McKinney (linebacker) are both capable of starting; Johnson, who can cover and play the run, has Pro Bowl potential, while McKinney brings size and competitiveness. I also like sixth-round pick Reshard Cliett (linebacker), who should be a great addition to the special teams unit. Getting 16 effective games out of Jadeveon Clowney, who lost 12 games to injury in 2014 and underwent knee surgery in December, will be key."

Looking ahead to 2015 there is still some work to do to get over the next hurdle for O’Brien and company. Getting into the post season will require improvements in all three phases, so let’s look at which players can help the team make those improvements this year.
