Firstly, check out Drew Dougherty's '5 things to watch' at OTAs. This is what I'll most be looking for:
2. Savage Not Solo- During the three-day minicamp last week, rookie Tom Savage was the only quarterback on the premises. Now, he’ll join the mix with Ryan Fitzpatrick, Case Keenum and T.J. Yates. Those three have all started NFL games, and Fitzpatrick’s been in the League since 2005. The amount of reps Savage gets will be key, as the entire offense is learning a new system with head coach Bill O’Brien in place.
Our old pal Mike Kerns posted this on Twitter:
That's about it for now. We'll keep this updated as more news comes out. We've been hearing that talks with the media and any injury updates will be at the absolute minimum.
Until then, check out John Harris' "The Briefing" series on all of the Texans' draft picks.

Watt said he doesn't want to give "trade secrets" concerning the differences between 3-4 defenses that Crennel vs. Phillips run. #Texans— PDS (@PatDStat) May 27, 2014
Most interesting takeaway from #Texans OTAs? How OB going to prep QB for season. = reps now til need to give starter reps to QB who earns it— Stephanie Stradley (@StephStradley) May 27, 2014

O'Brien: QB, P, K & LS are only positions/players that don't need to be fluid, able to play another position. #Texans— Drew Dougherty (@DoughertyDrew) May 27, 2014
Clowney said he's excited to be at OTAs with all the vets. Said Watt is the kind of guy that makes him want to work harder. #Texans— Dave Zangaro (@DZangaro) May 27, 2014
