Greg Mancz deserves to start for the Texans this coming season.

Houston Texans’ center Greg Mancz had a great season in 2016 as he filled in for Nick Martin.

Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus has come out with an article that selects a secret superstar from every NFL team as we get ready to embark on another season.

When it comes to the Texans, Mancz was chosen as their secret superstar.

Here’s what Monson wrote:

"C Greg Mancz2016 snaps: 1120Key stat: Allowed just 18 total pressures across 1,120 snaps over the regular season.Another star of the PFF college grading, Mancz somehow went undrafted in 2015, but started last season for the Texans at center and had five perfect games of pass protection as well as grading solidly as a run-blocker over the year. His PFF grade of 84.2 was good enough to rank eighth in the NFL, higher than multiple Pro Bowl players. Mancz didn’t allow a sack or hit across two playoff games."

I agree with Pro Football Focus. Which is why I don’t know how the Texans don’t start Mancz in 2017.

I know Martin is coming back, but they would be smart to move either him or Mancz to guard. It will only make their offensive line stronger.

I trust Martin and Mancz a lot more than I do Xavier S’ua-Filo when it comes to playing left guard.

With either Tom Savage or rookie Deshaun Watson under center, Houston has to do whatever it to make sure their offensive line is as rock solid as it can be.

Comment below and give your thoughts on Mancz and possibly starting him along with Martin.
