Building an NFL Trade Deadline Wish List for the Houston Texans

After the Houston Texans completely dominated the elite Baltimore Ravens in a pivotal matchup, it's hard to imagine that the Texans have much flaws that need correcting.

Well, they do, and if these flaws are corrected, the Texans can become a truly unstoppable force in the NFL.

First off, at wide receiver, the Texans lack a consistent No. 3 receiving threat. Keshawn Martin and Lestar Jean both have their exciting moments, but neither has yet to consistently contribute to the offense.

Also, if the Texans were to acquire a vertical threat, opposing safeties would be forced to back, which would open the Texans' terrific running game.

Then, at inside linebacker, the Texans are weaker than a 13-year-old boy who believes that he is incredibly strong after he works out for the first time.

After the loss of Brian Cushing to a torn ACL, a powerful presence in the middle of the field for the Texans would be an encouraging sight.

Finally, the last area of the team that must be improved is special teams coverage. Opposing kick and punt returners have run all over the Texans' special teams' units, giving their offenses excellent field position.

If the Texans can improve these three areas of their team, they will be an even more scary team come playoff time. Here is my wish list for the Texans before the NFL trade deadline.
