Grading the Houston Texans First Three Draft Picks

As the 2016 NFL Draft approached, Houston Texans coach Bill O’Brien and GM Rick Smith knew they needed to retool the offense. The Texans exited the playoffs in embarrassing fashion against the Chiefs and stumbled to 24th in offensive efficiency in 2015 according to Football Outsiders. This was in large part due to inconsistent offensive line play, lack of...

Grading the Houston Texans Defensive Picks in the 2016 Draft

Just a few days ago, I graded three of the Houston Texans offensive picks in the NFL draft and determined the team did a very good job with their first three picks. However, now it's time to dissect how the Texans faired on the other side of the ball in the 2016 draft. For the past several seasons now, the Texans' identity...

What’s Next for Blake Bortles?

The Jacksonville Jaguars are a team on the rise. Despite being the laughing stock of the league for the past decade, thanks to the patience of owner Shahid Khan in keeping Gus Bradley, the team has had continuity that not many franchises experience in the current "win-now or else" NFL. With young weapons, solid additions in free agency, and...

The Golden Age of Running Backs Is Now…but Nobody Cares

Stop me if you've heard this one before: the running back position is being devalued in the NFL. It's a common cliché that is a direct result of another NFL cliché: it's a passing league now. Both of these are true statements. In a world where only four running backs are making an average of $7 million or more...

Lamar Miller Ready to be the Man in Houston

Late in the fourth quarter, running back Arian Foster took one stride and crumpled to the turf on Miami's Sun Life Stadium. His helmet buried in the dirt, Foster was coming to the painful realization it was his last play in a Texans' uniform. GM Rick Smith silently looked upon his fallen star, knowing it was the end too. He knew...

2016 Marks Make or Break Year for Jadeveon Clowney

Just two years ago, the Houston Texans held the number one overall pick in the NFL Draft. As the draft approached, rumors circulated that the Texans were leaning toward picking defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. There was nothing to hate about the South Carolina superstar. He was the number one player coming out of high school, a first team All-American, and the number...

Predicting the 2016 NFL Rookies of the Year

Offensive Rookie of the Year: The Frontrunner: Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Dallas Cowboys This is an easy pick. The best running back prospect in the last few years drafted to the team with the NFL's best offensive line. If Elliott doesn't win the OROY award, it will be a disappointment. Now that Darren McFadden's injury woes have resurfaced, look for Elliott to tote...

Mariota, Titans Ready To Find Identity In Running Game

Just one season after quarterback Marcus Mariota was taken number two overall in the 2015 NFL Draft, the Titans may be ready to find their identity in their running game.
