Early Predictions for Houston Texans' 2014 Training Camp Battles
Patric Schneider/Associated Press

The Houston Texans approached this offseason as a two-year process, in my opinion, even though I doubt they would ever admit that publicly. That strategy was evident to me with how they approached free agency and prioritized quarterback during the draft.

If you plan to be a contender this year, you don't wait until the fourth round to take a quarterback or make safety Chris Clemons your biggest free-agent signing. I don't disagree with the strategy because the team had too many holes to reasonably fill in one offseason, but fans should curb their expectations for this year.

Coach Bill O'Brien might turn out to be a great coach, but he's not a miracle worker.

Having holes and question marks across the roster will lead to many competitions for starting jobs and reserve spots during OTAs, training camp and the preseason. The most talked-about competition is of course for the starting quarterback job, but it's far from being the only one worth watching.
