Last week, this very serious football operation published an article on the Texans’ all-time offense. Today is a diametric opposite. Sit down, take out your pen and paper, and chose eleven (11) athletes who would form the best possible defense for your Houston Texans.
If you want, you can use my nickel defense as a template to build your own in the comments below, though you can certainly run a different scheme to maximize your talent if you prefer.
Defensive End: J.J. Watt
Defensive Tackle: D.J. Reader
Defensive Tackle: Antonio Smith
Defensive End: Jadeveon Clowney
Linebacker: Brian Cushing
Linebacker: Benardrick McKinney
Cornerback: Johnathan Joseph
Cornerback: A.J. Bouye
Nickle Cornerback: Bradley Roby
Strong Safety: Kareem Jackson
Free Safety: Andre Hal
Defensive Coordinator: Wade Phillips
With that, the space is yours. Leave your suggestion of the composition of franchise’s top defense in the Comments.
