Photo by Kara Durrette/Getty Images Hold up wait a minute, y’all thought Caserio was finished? Meek Mill may not be in the Big Three of rappers, but his hit song Dreams and Nightmares is an all time hype up song that was the anthem of 2019. I wrote this same column in 2022 heading into the draft coverage and thought I could bring this back again as we approach the phase of the pre-draft process that’s all smoke and mirrors. Logistically, nothing will change from now until the draft, unless you’re T’Vondre Sweat at this point.... Jokes aside, Houston is in a good place compared to this time las ..read more

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Part two of a three part series. Criminal experts will tell you that eyewitness testimony is unreliable. Simply put, we remember what we want to remember and forget what we want to forget. This is why we get the whole “back in my day...” business so much. We swore we would never do it and then we find ourselves doing it. The obvious fact is that any rigorous analysis cannot rely on memory or eyewitness testimony alone. We must have hard data to back everything up. We began this journey by looking at Nick Caserio drafts as Houston Texans GM. That’s obviously a very na ..read more

Could (or should) the Houston Texans draft a QB in the 2024 NFL Draft

Photo by Kara Durrette/Getty Images QB1 appears set, but the future for the QB2/3 spots... With the draft just a week away, the Texans find themselves in a somewhat enviable position. They have confidence that they have all of the big positions locked up, like franchise QB, top pass rusher, Left Tackle, receiving talent at WR and TE, and while they are not teaming with All-Pros at EVERY position, they would appear to have done enough between previous draft picks and current free agency to at least mitigate any perceived weaknesses. At this point, what exactly does that leave for Houston to do ..read more

Photo by Ryan Kang/Getty Images Texans defense is top heavy and the “depth” chart is kiddy pool deep Part Two of our pre-draft recon of the depth chart. Last week we reviewed the offense’s depth chart and discovered a significant need for depth at the tackle position. This week, we deep dive into the defense - a defense with as many new faces as familiar ones. Nick Caserio has done a fairly good job at filling in holes across the defense. He’s added top end talent at premium positions while taking several rolls of the dice on the secondary. Any mock draft prognosticator or draft analyst knows ..read more

Over the course of a few short months, the Texans have added pro bowlers Joe Mixon, Danielle Hunter and Stefon Diggs. Each is arguably a prime example of top talent at their respective positions. The Texans are the first team to acquire players that recorded these stats in the previous season: 100+ catches (Stefon Diggs) 1000+ rush yards (Joe Mixon) 10+ sacks (Danielle Hunter) pic.twitter.com/wgZrcG3 ..read more

It’s always fun to relive the happy moments of our Texans fandom... it’s not too long of a list It was only two weeks ago when Nick Caserio landing his biggest acquisition yet by acquiring wide receiver Stefon Diggs in a move that excited the Texans fanbase and put the entire NFL on notice. In the aftermath of such a move, Texans have become for what may be the first time in franchise history... a media darling. Coverage of the team has never been higher... almost as high as the hopes are for the 2024 season. Before we get carried away or the story slips away into reality, let’s peer back a f ..read more

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports Part one of a three part series The NFL draft is arguably the biggest event in the NFL offseason and the most important ways for teams to build their rosters. So, one of these articles is not enough to break down the draft. I’m going to use three. Others will look at the current prospects and what to expect from the Houston Texans. I like to take a more historical view. In each instance, I will use a grading system to rate prospects historically and then take an aggregate score. Each player can earn somewhere between one and four stars. One-star players are p ..read more

Brett Coomer/Houston Chronicle via Getty Images Who would the Texans’ WR4 be? John Metchie? Xavier Hutchinson? Robert Woods? Draft pick? With the GOAT, Andre Johnson, about to hit the NFL Hall of Fame, Houston Texans general manager Nick Caserio and head coach Demeco Ryans have loaded up the wide receiver room. Stefon Diggs. Nico Collins. Tank Dell. Those three men are likely a lock for the top receiver spots. But that leaves room for one more player to rise and shine. And possibly a fifth to sneak into the highlight reels on occasion. But, most pass happy teams rarely field more than four rec ..read more
