  • Houston Texans: Positional Needs to Fill in the Offseason

    The Houston Texans were well-rounded and pushed through some injuries during the 2018 AFC South championship season. This offseason, the Texans have several needs that need to be addressed. With three picks in the first two rounds, it is a general consensus that the Texans need to address the offensive line and cornerback with those picks.

  • Offseason as the Texans GM, Part 1

    Over the course of the offseason, I will participate in simulated versions of the offseason. The only difference is rather than having Free Agency before the draft, the mock draft took place before Free Agency. Free Agency is scheduled to open up soon, and will be part two of this series.

  • Why Kyler Murray is Hurting His Draft Stock

    Oklahoma quarterback and Oakland Athletics’ centerfielder Kyler Murray lead the Sooners to the playoffs this past season. He did so with some solid weapons in Trey Sermon, Marquise Brown, and CeeDee Lamb, but a large part of their success came from his talent. In the defensively lacking Big 12, Murray carved defenses game in and game out; resulting in a Big 12 championship. Since the day their season ended against Alabama, he has not done himself justice.

  • Houston Texans: Players Who Could Be Released

    Even though the Houston Texans had a rather successful season — winning 11 games and the AFC South title —  there were tons of players who did not play up to expectations. With the Texans entering free agency with pretty specific needs, here are some cut candidates.

  • The Misconception of A.J. Brown

    Ole Miss had one of, if not the best wide receiver group in the country this past season. With D.K. Metcalf and DaMarkus Lodge working outside, and A.J. Brown in the slot, the passing game was lethal. NFL bound Dawson Knox played tight end also, acting as another threat through the air. While Metcalf got injured and later became the consensus top receiver for the draft, Brown took a lot of heat.

  • Spartans in the Draft: L.J. Scott

    L.J. Scott broke onto the scene for Michigan State as a freshman running back. He quickly took over as the lead running back. Scott and Saquon Barkley were the top two freshman backs in the Big Ten, and Scott even put up comparable statistics. After a crowded backfield in 2016 and 2017, and some injuries as well, L.J. Scott is now declaring for the 2019 NFL Draft.

  • Bearkats to the NFL: Derick Roberson

    This season, another defensive lineman from the Bearkats has played his way onto the draft radar. Defensive end Derick Roberson has accepted an invite to this season’s Shrine Game where he will have the opportunity to showcase his talents against high-level competition.
  • Colts at Texans: Keys to Victory

    After an 0-3 start from the Houston Texans, and a 1-5 start from the Indianapolis Colts, both teams have rallied to make the playoffs. The Texans rattled off nine straight wins, while the Colts won nine of their last ten. The Texans still managed to win the AFC South, and subsequently claimed the three-seed. Meanwhile, the Colts beat the Titans in the final primetime game of the season to clinch the last spot in the AFC bracket.

  • Defensive Gameplan to Stifle the Colts

    While slightly unusual, the Houston Texans should take a different approach on defense to the Wild Card matchup this weekend. The Indianapolis Colts’ offensive line has looked superb in the latter part of the regular season. Rookie offensive guards Quenton Nelson and Braden Smith have helped protect Andrew Luck as well as possible.

  • Why Justin Herbert Made the Right Decision

    Justin Herbert and Dwayne Haskins made up the top two quarterbacks in the draft for the entirety of the season. This past week though, Herbert announced that he will be returning to school for next season. Haskins is yet to make an announcement on his future.

  • Saturday Matinee in New York & Possible Playoff Matchups

    For today’s game against the Jets, Coutee is out once again with a hamstring injury. Zach Fulton and Andre Hal are questionable. DeAndre Carter was a full participant during practice this week and will play. For an unusual Saturday game, the Texans play on the road with a chance to extend the lead on their division.

  • Finalizing Justice Hill's Profile, a Criminally Overlooked Prospect

    In one of my first articles ever written, I spoke about one of my favorite preseason prospects. Justice Hill was an absolute menace for opposing defenses as a sophomore in 2017. That didn’t change this season as a junior. Oklahoma State finished the season at 6-6 and has clinched a bowl game against the Missouri Tigers. After missing the final two games of the season with a rib injury, Hill has announced that he will not be participating in the Liberty Bowl.
