State of the Texans:
Kansas City Chiefs
With the draft talk starting to die down, sadly, things have begun to shift to the current roster for the Texans. And after an offseason of multiple free agent losses, the primary concern has fallen on a trio of upcoming 2013 free agents that fans are already worried about losing.
In what I’ve labeled “The Trifecta,” these three players are left tackle Duane Brown, outside linebacker Connor Barwin and quarterback Matt Schaub.
After the release of right tackle Eric Winston, the trading of DeMeco Ryans and Jacoby Jones being handed his walking papers, Houston has undoubtedly cleared up double digits in cap space going forward. So it is time to address the 800 pound elephant in the room and talk about extending the trifecta listed above.
First, lets submit that there hasn’t been enough space cleared up to do new deals for all three. Next, if there is enough to do two of the three, who gets left out? Finally, in looking at the draft the Texans just had, can we see if it tells us anythin...

Usually it is Bob McNair, the owner, in the locker room after the game talking to reporters. The job suits him. He's got that whole old-guy Texas way about him, with the slow, pebbled drawl.
Then it goes to Gary Kubiak, the coach, another native Houstonian. He's younger, but he's got that thing, too.
And then there is Rick Smith, the general manager. He's not from...
Round 1, Pick 26 – Whitney Mercilus (OLB/DE)
With their first pick, Houston selected Whitney Mercilus, OLB from Illinois. Mercilus is a speed demon. He will bring an unrivaled amount of athleticism to the defensive front, and provide consistent pressure on the quarterback. Mercilus may not be an immediate starter, but expect to see him rotate in and get substantial playing time...
