    The Houston Texas. A bottom feeder last season looking to make a Jadeveon Clowney sized impact on the AFC South.


    Case Keenum will likely get the start due to his slight advantage with throw power and deep accuracy. Unless Fitzpatrick does well in the preseason, the "Amish Rifle" will likely be second string. Plus I'm a Bills fan and I still retain a loathing of the former Bills gunslinger and his late game zeroics.


    Running Backs:
    Foster is the obvious starter at halfback. The backup role is up for grabs between Brown and Johnson with Grimes and Blue likely to be cut unless the prove worthy of a roster spot. Fullback is another position up for grabs with Prosch as the early lead, a free agent may be brought in to compete for the spot.


    Wide Receivers & Tight Ends:
    The aging Andre Johnson is the top receiver with DeAndre Hopkins waiting in the wings to become a top-flight receiver for the Texans. Thomas and Martin will compete for the slot role with the possibility of a free agent competing for the role as well. Posey and Bonner will have to make a good case to make the team or else end up cut. At tight end Griffin will likely get the start with Graham close behind. Potter and Weeks will be cut.

    Offensive Line:
    Myers is the lone center and will serve as an anchor for the interior of the line with strong run block and impact block skills. The former Pac-12 Morris Trophy winner Xavier Su'a-Filo will likely start at left guard and hopefully become a staple of the offensive line in years to come. Another strong run blocker, Brandon Brooks looks to help pave the way for Arian Foster as the starting right guard. The 2013-2014 Pro Bowl left tackle Duane Brown will help protect the young Keenum's blind side with a 96 pass blocking rating. The second year right tackle Brennan Williams will be given the chance to start over the former seventh round pick Derek Newton. The right tackle position is a question mark for the Texans going in to the season and another player may be brought in to compete for the job.

    Defensive preview will come later...
