PFT takes a stab at Texans’ needs

Posted by Nick Scurfield on June 17, 2011 – 3:33 pm

ProFootballTalk.com, the ever-popular NFL blog, has been putting together a checklist of each team’s needs for once the lockout ends. Today, they weighed in on the Texans.

PFT’s Gregg Rosenthal, whom we interviewed at the NFL Scouting Combine, listed the following eight items:

1. Find a starting cornerback
2. Add a potential starter at safety too
3. Build defensive line depth
4. Teach the 3-4 defense for dummies
5. Settle the third (Editor’s note: second?) receiver position
6. See if anyone wants Amobi Okoye or Steve Slaton
7. Bring back Vonta Leach
8. Thank Mr. McNair once again

Do you agree with some/all/none of Rosenthal’s points? And what do you view as the Texans’ biggest remaining needs? Opine away in the comments section below.

    pretty dead-on evaluation if you ask me…although I don’t know if the “3-4 for dummies” is relevant…Wade’s 3-4 is not a typical 3-4 and I don’t think it will be THAT difficult for the players to learn in a short amount of time. point 2…I guarantee you that the Texans don’t have the “settle the third receiver position” ranked nearly as high as PFT…it may not even make the Texans top 10…PFT has failed to consider the fact that Owen Daniels or whoever is in the game at TE is basically our #2 receiver on a lot of plays….a lot of fans are also caught up on this “we need a definite #2 receiver”…Kevin Walter is one of the most reliable receivers in the NFL…go look at the numbers…he hardly ever drops a ball thrown his way…we have plenty of talent at WR…we just need to work on protecting Schaub better in order to give him more time to make a FULL progression of reads instead of looking at Andre…looking at Owen if Andres not open or throwing the ball away cause here comes the defense.
