Houston Texans Late August Scouting Report
David Trojanowsky

The Texans take on the 49’ers at home this week. QB Davis Mills needs more reps; the Texans O with him at the helm have been boring. The offensive line so far is suspect. First round pick OG Kenyon Green is not ready. RB Marlon Mack does not look like the back I remember from two years ago. RB Dameon Pierce has looked the best, but is running behind that weak blocking…

WR Brandin Cooks is being saved for the real season. WR Nico Collins is starting to come around; he’s shown that he’s tough and can make plays in the end zone. Slot receiver WR Phillip Dorsett II will win that job. TE Brevin Jordan is not progressing. The Texans will be looking at the waiver wire for decent tight end play. The Texans are sucking along the OL. The O looks like a 4-13 team.

The D is progressing. Rookies CB Derek Stingley Jr and FS Jalen Pitre will go a long way toward fixing that leaky secondary. The defense plays turn over football. DE Jonathan Greenard and DT Roy Lopez have progressed. Looks like DT Ross Blacklock will be cut, he cannot keep up with the FA DTs. The defense looks like a 9-8 team.

I expect the Texans to try to improve the offensive line and bring in FA TEs in the last two weeks before Opening Day.

Sans competition, PK Ka'imi Fairbairn has won the job. With the O coming up short, he may have many opportunities this season.
