So far in free agency, the Houston Texans have lost many, many more players than they have gained.
Glover Quin, Connor Barwin and James Casey all signed elsewhere. Capable players such as Shaun Cody, Quintin Demps, Ryan Harris, Tim Dobbins, Bradie James, Jesse Nading, Antoine Caldwell and Rashad Butler all remain un-signed.
So far, only Ed Reed, Brice McCain and Shane Lechler have accepted contracts with the Texans.
Needless to say, the Texans have an exorbitant amount of spots to fill on their roster. Free agency, however, will not be the means through which the Texans stock up on depth.
Instead, they will have to fill their roster through the draft.
Regardless, the somewhat scary amount of open spots on the roster will not deter us from breaking down the Texans' current depth chart.
Which players will be starters? Which players will be bona fide backups? Which players should be cut immediately after their replacements are drafted?
