Team Needs Confirmed By Those Who Actually Have Power To Do Something About It

Maybe this doesn't qualify as "news," but it's always nice to see that the team is on the same page as its fans:

"In no certain order," Kubiak said, "we're looking for a young left tackle to develop. Our running back situation has to be solidified. We're looking for a back that's going to be here for a long, long time. It's no secret that we're looking for help in the secondary. That's a priority, too."

And while Rick Smith seems to be a fan of the combine, it would appear that Kubiak is cut more from the "do it on the field" cloth:

"I like to scout on film," Kubiak said. "I don't think there's a better way to evaluate a player. That's the way I was brought up, and that's the way I'm most comfortable doing it. We can get film and statistics and other information on players, but I like to use the combine to sit down with them for 15 minutes and just talk to them and get a feel for them. I want to imagine while I'm talking with them if I can envision them playing with guys like DeMeco (Ryans) and Mario (Williams)."

We've asked this question a million times, and we're sure to ask it a million more until Roger Goodell announces what the Texans are doing with the eighteenth pick in the draft.  Still, fire away in the Comments below:  As of today, what do the Texans do at No. 18?  What about in the rest of the draft?  What should they do?
