5. Chris Myers, Offensive Guard
From 2008-14, Chris Myers was a force for the Houston Texans in the interior offensive line, earning two selections to the NFL Pro Bowl and was a first-team All-Pro selection by Pro Football Focus.
Myers made all of his career 128 starts with the Texans in those seven seasons with the franchise, as 16 of his career starts were with the Denver Broncos, with Myers spending his first three seasons in the league in the Mile High City.
The offensive guard played in a total of 153 games in his 10-year career in the league, and with the Texans he made a total of 112 starts, which were all of the regular seasons games played with the franchise. Myers was also a member of the Texans when they won two of their three playoff games, both wins against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Why would Myers be a great addition to the 2019 roster of the Texans? For starters, not only did he have two Pro Bowl selections, but there isn’t an interior offensive lineman currently on the roster of the Texans who matches up with Myers.
In his career with the Texans, Myers had a total of four holding penalties, seven false starts and three penalties that were declined. In his seven seasons with the Texans, that means Myers averaged less than one holding penalty a season and just one false start penalty per season.
If Myers were on the current Texans roster in his prime, there is no way current quarterback Deshaun Watson would have played under as much pressure as he did last season, nor would he have made some of the rushed decisions he made, too.
Myers would be a crown jewel with the current Texans offensive line, and he would make everyone around him better.
Being a PFF All-Pro and two-time Pro Bowl selection, as of last season nobody on the Texans offensive line was near that level of play, meaning Myers would be the best offensive lineman on the 2019 roster if he were in his prime level of competition.
