Drafting a QB tops Texans’ wish list - San Antonio Express-News
The Texans have the 22nd pick in the first round of a draft that will be tilted heavily to the defensive side of the ball. The Texans’ biggest needs are quarterback and running back. Smith will use a lot of the cap room to try to re-sign veterans such as guard Brandon Brooks, center Ben Jones and defensive end Jared Crick, among others. Coleman is ideal for what the Texans need — a receiver with exceptional speed who can double as a dangerous kick returner — but they have more pressing needs. Scouts insist this is the best group of interior line prospects in history. Because the Texans play a 3-4, interior linemen who project outside in their scheme should be plentiful.
