The Houston Texans’ coaches are getting an up close and personal look at the quarterbacks and offensive linemen at this year’s combine.

At least every head coach and general manager from each and every NFL team attends the NFL Scouting Combine.

The Houston Texans have a little advantage this year as they search for help along the offensive line as well as at the quarterback position.

It turns out that Houston’s quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan and offensive line coach Mike Devlin are working with some of the prospects.

The Texans have already met and conducted interviews with offensive linemen Garrett Bolles (Utah), Ryan Ramczyk (Wisconsin), Taylor Moton (Western Michigan) at the combine. They also met with Texans Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Being able to work with the quarterbacks offensive lineman at the combine first hand will help the Texans’ coaches see how each player reacts to being coached and see how well they retain information as well as receive instructions.

While this year’s crop of offensive lineman and quarterbacks isn’t the strongest, this should help the Texans figure out which player is the best fit for them with the 25th overall pick.
