Houston Texans June Scouting Report
David Trojanowsky

I always have high hopes this time of the year. By now we should have experienced a mini-camp and have formed our unrealistic expectations about new players and the team. Not so this year. I think that even playing this year is an unrealistic expectation! That said I will share the latest of what I hear around the campfire.

Doubts concerning second year TE Kahale Warring. Will he emerge as a player or another of the Texans well documented third round duds? He has stiff competition. TE Jordon Thomas and TE Jordon Akins are third year players who should make their mark this year.

Free-agent DT Timmy Jernigan decided to blow off signing with the Texans. Have not a clue about who if anyone will be in line for that roster spot. This should be an opportunity for free-agent rookie NT Auzoyah Alufohai. DT Ross Blacklock is expected to provide a push up the middle. This team was last in stopping Red Zone scores last year. Both these rookies need the reps now.

QB Nick Tiano, RB Scottie Phillips and OG Cordel Iwuagwu are undrafted free agents I would love to be discussing right now. No practice, not much to discuss on this end.

With $19 million of remaining cap cash, the team could bring in more defensive talent.

Bottom line is that the defense has not seen an infusion of talent. I believe the team anticipates being able to build a highlight reel offense. Bad defense; great offense sounds like a good fantasy team to me. I wish I had more, but it’s dry here in Houston.
