Houston Texans poll: biggest training camp draw


Earlier this week I discussed what I am looking forward to watching most on both offense and defense when the Houston Texans open up training camp in a couple of days. Now we turn it over to the fans to see what excites you as football season is finally coming back.

There is plenty to watch, such as the quarterback battle between Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett. Will it be the pocket passer with the strong arm in Mallett, or the journeyman with a so-so record.

There will also be some new faces to watch try and acclimate themselves with the Texans. Rookies like receiver Jaelen Strong and linebacker Bernardrick McKinney will try and earn starting gigs at their respective positions. Free agent wide outs Nate Washington and Cecil Shorts will also be trying to prove they can fit in Houston and belong on the field.

Then of course the two new safeties in Rahim Moore and Stevie Brown could be a draw as well. Will the veteran players come in and perform well out of the gate, or will there be a rough transitional period with the re-made defensive backfield.

Also new to the team was the biggest free agent the Texans landed this offseason in nose tackle Vince Wilfork. He may not put up huge numbers, but watch for him to take up blockers and free things up for the big playmakers like defensive end J.J. Watt.

Another guy who hopefully will have room cleared for him by the big tackle is outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney. He too is a candidate for biggest draw as all eyes will be on him as he recovers from a December knee surgery.

So feel free to let us know with the poll and get the discussion started below on what you are ready to see when the Texans finally start to take the field for the 2015 NFL season!
