Next up, with the 18th pick, are the Houston Texans.  For the best insight and analysis on the Texans, head over to Battle Red Blog.  Below are the Texans' draft needs, courtesy of NFL Draft Countdown:

1. Offensive Tackle: From the broken record department: Houston still doesn't have a stud left tackle and you have to think they will eventually want to address that long-standing problem. You'd think.
2. Outside Linebacker: A bunch of 'backers left as free agents but it wasn't like they were stars anyway. They probably need at least one starter and the depth isn't anything to write home about either
3. Safety: This team hasn't had a top safety since its inception and now it looks like Von Hutchins, Will Demps, Michael Boulware, Glenn Earl and Jason Simmons are all set to hit the market this off-season.
