Houston Texans Mock Draft: Every Pick, All 7 Rounds
Patric Schneider/Associated Press

For a team coming off a 12-4 season in 2012, the Houston Texans had a surprising number of holes on their roster going into the 2013 season. Those holes were never filled and the team finished with a 2-14 record last year for the second time in franchise history.

The Texans have run into cap issues after extending several big-name players like Arian Foster, Duane Brown and Brian Cushing. With no cap flexibility the holes on the roster have not only gone unfilled but have gotten more numerous, as more players left the team in free-agency this offseason.

Coaches and general managers always talk about taking the best overall player instead of reaching for need during the draft but few teams stick to that strategy. It will be important for the Texans to remain disciplined and stick to their board during the 2014 NFL draft because they have a hole at nearly every position.

Left tackle and outside wide receiver are the only positions I feel solid about going into next season. Every other position needs a new starter or at least depth. Fortunately for the Texans, some experts have said that the talent pool in this year's draft is deeper than it has been in the last decade.
