Houston Texans: How do firings affect draft strategy?
Davis Mills would have room to grow by not taking a QB from a weak draft class.
Everyone knows the state of this year’s quarterbacks that have declared for the draft. They are probably the least talented quarterback class since the 2007 class that featured JaMarcus Russell and Brady Quinn. That entire class wound up going 42-97 altogether.
With that being said, it’s all up to Caserio to figure out which fire he wants to extinguish at a certain position if you will. The Texans were dead last in total offense and rushing offense. Someone like Evan Neal or Charles Cross could be a great anchor for an offensive line that was abysmal to begin the first half of the season.
Defensively the team improved, forcing way more turnovers than they did last year, but the number one receivers from their opponents were still way too lethal for Houston’s liking. However, taking a risk on Derek Stingley Jr., who has battled injury issues, could pay off in the long run.
If I had to give this a forecasted percentage of happening, I’d give this a 20 percent chance. It’s hard to see a new head coach and offensive coordinator taking the incumbent Mills over someone they agree has a better chance of winning.
