State of the Texans:
During mini camp, we had a chance to catch up with rookie defensive tackle Chris Jones. We talked to the newest Houston Texans defensive lineman about how mini camp was going, signing his new contract, his new position coach in Coach Bill Kollar, the approaching OTAs and representing Bowling Green in the NFL.
See what Jones had to say.

The three day mini-camp wrapped up and the Houston Texans were able to look at and evaluate 56 players. The Texans had draft picks and 23 rookies already signed to deals who looked to be safe moving out of this phase of the Texans off season.
We were able to take in four of the five practices and get a good look at this new group of rookies who are going to join...
Houston Texans inside linebacker Darryl Sharpton has still not be cleared by doctors according to defensive coordinator Wade Phillips in his interview on Sports Radio 610 in Houston.
Big takeaway from the Wade Phillips interview was that ILB Darryl Sharpton hasn’t been cleared for offseason work.

The Houston Texans, as reported earlier, invited former Kansas State QB Collin Klein to participate at the team's rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.
Try as he may, he did not make the cut, reports FOX 26. “No, I did not sign,” Klein said after minicamp concluded. “I think they’re working through some things.
Klein looked like a longshot, and a player that would...
Rookie offensive tackle Brennan Williams is an imposing figure at 6-6 and 316 lbs. and looks the part of an NFL offensive tackle. Williams will be working at right tackle and we had the chance to catch up with him on the last day of rookie mini camp.
We talked about his knee injury scare, how the offensive zone schemes from North Carolina and Houston compare, and how he is looking...

Time to rise up Juan…
The Texans need help across from Andre Johnson and they may have found it in DeAndre Hopkins. The rookie WR has been impressive thus far and has caught the eye of HC Gary Kubiak.
“He’s special,” Kubiak said. “Ball skills are extremely special. Very long — long arms. Big hands — you saw the catch he made out here today. He’s going to help us...

They had just a few needs on the roster and most were addressed in the early rounds.DeAndre Hopkins/WR/Clemson (Round 1, pick #27): Prior to the draft we were lead to believe receiver Robert Woods of USC was one of Houston's first round targets. They settled on...
In Houston I doubt this man can walk down the street without getting a pat on the back or a request for him and the rest of the Houston Texans to kick some behind next season. Show his face and fans around the country will know he is--one of the fiercest defensive weapons in the NFL today.
Want to see when he didn't look so fierce?

Arian Foster Looking to Bounce Back?:
A lot of the preseason talk has been about Adrian Peterson which is likely just fine with Houston Texans running back Arian Foster.
Running back by committee has become the norm in the NFL. Minnesota does it with Adrian Peterson, and clearly after last season’s 2000+ yard performance they clearly do a very good job of it. So when...
The Texans desperately need a WR2 to step up and Hopkins has the look of a guy who can get it done in Houston. He looks strong our of his breaks and should be a nice compliment to all world WR, Andre Johnson. Thanks to RosterWatch for the heads up.
