7. Houston Texans

Alabama. Jonah Williams . 7. player. 10. . OT

The Houston Texans may have beaten Dallas, but the gave showed once again that Deshaun Watson is getting hit way too often. Some of this is his own fault on scrambles and holding the ball too long, but it’s clear their offensive line is not in the best condition. They need more reliable blockers to keep their prized young quarterback healthy. Otherwise, he may not last five years at this rate. Jonah Williams is exactly the sort of guy they want. He’s athletic, sturdy and strong with good feet in pass protection. He’ll also be a big boost to their inconsistent ground attack, something they haven’t really figured out since Arian Foster left.
