Offense-heavy draft leaves Texans light at defensive end

It was assumed by many, including yours truly, that the Texans would pick a defensive end at some point during the draft. Well, that didn’t happen. They did select D.J. Reader in the sixth round, but he is projected to be Vince Wilfork’s eventual replacement at nose tackle. Houston had a very solid draft, but they did not get an end to add depth and fill the vacancy left by...

Houston Texans: draft analysis and grades

This may have been the most entertaining draft in a while. Other than the constant boos hurled at NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, we were blessed to see Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott don a crop top tuxedo. I would’ve taken him off my draft board immediately after that, but even murder wouldn’t stop Cowboys owner Jerry Jones from targeting a player he wants (insert...

Texans pick up Clemson defensive tackle D.J. Reader in 5th round

Houston made their last pick of the 2016 Draft with the selection of Clemson defensive tackle D.J. Reader. A massively built, prototypical 3-4 nose tackle, Reader is a beast of an athlete at 6’3” and 328 lbs. Reader adds another body up front to the defensive line, and is a good depth pick for the Texans.

Did the Houston Texans release Brian Hoyer too soon?

The Houston Texans announced Tuesday morning that the team had cut quarterback Brian Hoyer. The news comes just as team workouts are starting up. But could the team have benefited from holding on to him just a bit longer? In his time as the Texans’ offensive leader, Hoyer put forth an uninspired performance.
