Houston Texans 2006 AFC South Preview

 

The Houston Texans will have former quarterbacks coach Gary Kubiak as their head coach.  The Texans hope Kubiak can extract all of David Carr’s potential.  This appears to be a few years off though.  Houston passed on Reggie Bush with the first pick in the 2006 NFL Draft and took defensive end Mario Williams from North Carolina State instead.  We will see if they did the right thing in a few years.

 
David Carr should thrive now that he can throw to wide receiver Eric Moulds.  Carr had a 60.5 completion percentage and threw for 2,488 yards and 14 touchdowns.  Moulds will give Carr the target he has always needed to excel.  Domanick Davis will be the starting running back.  Davis rushed for 976 yards on 230 carries and scored 2 touchdowns.  Andre Johnson will be the other wide receiver.  The Houston Texans will be able to move the ball better than in 2005.

 

By drafting Mario Williams in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft, the Texans decided to commit to stopping teams on defense.  Williams will easily be Houston’s best defensive end.  Jason Babin and Antwan Peek will move from line backers to defensive ends, which both played in college.  The Texans will be better on defense under coordinator Richard Smith.
