2011 NFL Draft: Houston Texans analysis and predictions

2011 NFL Draft: Houston Texans analysis and predictions

WHERE THEY NEED HELP: Defensive secondary (Cornerbacks and safeties)

ANALYSIS: The Texans do not need any help on offense. The defense is another story. The Texans finished 30th overall in defense, and gave up 427 points, third most in the NFL last season. Houston gave up an average of 267.5 passing yards, the worst in the NFL last season. The secondary gave up 33 passing touchdowns last season. Wade Phillips was brought in as the new defensive coordinator and will convert the Texans to a 3-4 defense. A nose tackle and blitzing linebacker will be needed, but that is not the most pressing need on defense. Fixing the secondary is the first priority.
