Breaking Down the Houston Texans Roster After the 2014 Draft
Pat Sullivan/Associated Press

The Houston Texans came into the NFL draft with possibly more needs than any other team. Most experts believe they did a good job of addressing those needs but holes still remain.

They didn't draft an inside linebacker or slot receiver, didn't take a cornerback until the seventh round and waited until the fourth round to take a quarterback. While they did well, it's hard to imagine them making the playoffs with those holes remaining.

If I had to guess right now, the Texans will finish the 2014 season with a 6-10 record. That's not a criticism of who or how they drafted; I gave them a B+ yesterday in my draft wrap up. That's just an indication of how bad the roster was when Bill O'Brien took over.

I'm sure some of you will disagree which is fine, but I would ask you how many teams with a below-average quarterback have made the playoffs in the last five years?

So where does the roster stand overall after the draft? Click through this slide show for my breakdown of each position group.
