Houston needs to improve offensive line in draft

HOUSTON (AP) Now that the Houston Texans believe they've finally found their franchise quarterback in Deshaun Watson, they want to do everything they can to make things easier on him.

"As long as I'm here, I'm going to make every effort to put the pieces in place around him to help him, support him, and help him be successful on the field," general manager Brian Gaine said. "That might be on the perimeter. That might be on the offensive line. That might be in the backfield. That might even be on defense - a guy that can generate more turnovers that gets the ball back to him even more than that. He's certainly a centerpiece in terms of how we want to build our team and it's a focal point of how we want to build the roster."

Their first priority in this year's draft should be improving the offensive line after Watson was sacked an NFL-leading 62 times as Houston won the AFC South but lost to the Colts in the wild-card round. Watson played every game in his second year after having season-ending knee surgery as a rookie, but was banged-up for a chunk of the season while dealing with a partially collapsed lung and broken ribs from taking hits.
