The Houston Texans season is starting very soon. And by that I mean training camp. Now, for many people training camp is nothing to worry about, or even read into. However, I feel it’s not a true statement in the Texans case.

For most teams in this league, they aren’t relying solely upon their rookies. That is not the case when it comes to the Texans. Between Derek Stingley, Kenyon Green, John Metchie III, and Christian Harris, the Texans are going to have a lot of pressure on their rookies.

It’s with that thought that makes training camp so important. But not for the reason that you think.

When it comes to the Texans, they are going into the season expecting the most out of their prospects, but those expectations may be misplaced. I mean, how many rookies can come in day one and compete to the level we are expecting them too? The answer is not many.

So in training camp, I don’t expect the coaches to be looking at their rookies. No. I expect the coaching staff to be looking at their NFL readiness and rather or not they need to add more veteran leadership to their roster.

It’s for that reason that I expect training camp to be so important. So with that being said, here are five names still available that I feel the Texans should sign.
