Houston Texans Early August Scouting Report
David Trojanowsky

The Texans take on the ‘long in the tooth and over-rated’ Saints this weekend.

The best thing that could happen is for QB Davis Mills to get enough reps to help him develop into a legit NFL QB. He will not get much help from his OL. RT Tytus Howard has missed too much time in camp. First round pick G Kenyon Green has a lingering knee injury, his unavailability is a disappointment. The high hopes for a better OL this year are suspect.

The best backs, RB Dameon Pierce and RB Marlon Mack have been stymied in camp. They have talent, but again, not enough blocking.

Draft pick WR John Metchie III is out this year, trying to recover from cancer! WR Brandin Cooks, WR Nico Collins, slot receiver WR Phillip Dorsett II and TE Brevin Jordan so far have looked decent in camp. The Texans need an A+ in the OL and a star WR. So far, the O looks like a 3-14 team.

The D is off to a better start. Rasheem Green, DE Mario Addison, and DE Jerry Hughes have combined with select starters from last year to put together a good- looking D. Rookies CB Derek Stingley Jr and FS Jalen Pitre are impressing. The secondary will not give up as many big plays to the super passers that are in the league this year. The D looks like a 9-8 team.

Despite big time progress from where they were last year the Texans are destined to pick early in next years’ draft. The Texans have a plan, multiple future draft picks and 100 MM of extra cap space in 2023. Time is on their side!
