Let's get one thing straight, the Houston Texans are NOT the worst team in the league like many expected them to be. Myself included!

Tyrod Taylor has arguably had his best start to an NFL season. In two games Taylor has completed 70.5% of his passes, is averaging 9.5 yards an attempt, has thrown 3 touchdowns, and run for another, and has only taken 1 sack. That's what makes it all the more devastating that both he and WR rookie standout Nico Collins have been placed on IR. Thus, leaving starting duty for this Thursday night prime time matchup solely in the hands of rookie QB Davis Mills, who is set to make his NFL debut as a starter.

That's no easy task especially when considering that the opposing Carolina Panthers defense is statistically the best in the NFL through two weeks. Thankfully, the Texans OL has been a breath of fresh air, especially in pass protection in recent weeks. This is partly due to OC Tim Kelly having done a good job helping his line by keeping in extra blockers.

The Texans' defense has battled admirably through 2 weeks seeing rookie QB Trevor Lawrence throw 3 INT's in their week 1 matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Safety Justin Reid had an interception and forced fumble in Week 2 and is one of two players with an interception in each of the first two weeks of the season. The Panthers offensive line has been a weak point for their team thus far, so it's essential that the Texans game plan a way to get in the face of QB Sam Darnold. Ultimately, the true test will be whether the Texans can protect their rookie QB against an aggressive Panthers pass rush looking to make a name for themselves in primetime!

TEXANS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
