HOUSTON -- Houston Texans general manager Nick Caserio has a plan. The ultimate goal Davis Mills is the long-term answer at quarterback.Mills, who was drafted No. 67 overall out of Stanford, is expected to be in the running for Texans starting quarterback job for years to come. After all, Houston wouldnt use its first pick in the NFL Draft if they didnt think his skills would transfer over.RightMills, the team recent third-round selection, will have one season to prove he the right answer under center. If all goes according to plan, he should win the job over Tyrod Taylor at some point and prove his skills will be the ones needed at NRG Stadium.If that the case, Caserio can turn his attention to the 2022 NFL Draft by fixing the defense.

However, Mills in this scenario will have shown enough to where Caserio would be willing to pass on UNC Sam Howell, Oklahoma Spencer Rattler or Liberty Malik Willis.Instead, Houston fixes its pass rush by adding Oregon star Kayvon Thibodeaux.The junior Ducks defensive end started the 2020 season off slow, but the motor kicked into high gear for the close. He recorded at least one sack and four pressures in the final three outings, plus he tallied at least five tackles.Earlier this offseason, NFL Network Daniel Jeremiah comparedThibodeaux to former Dallas Cowboys great DeMarcus Ware. This season, it is expected for the 6-foot-5 defender to play a more hybrid role of both a three-point stance and a standing nine-tech to better his chances at pressuring the quarterback.

If both struggleor even if they perform wellone can never have too many pass rushers on the roster.AndThibodeaux He special.Easterling also provides Mills a weapon on the inside with Clemson Justyn Ross as the No. 33 selection. Ross, who was projected to be a first-round pick entering 2020, missed all last season due toa congenital fusion condition of his neck and spine that required surgery. As reported by All Clemson Owen Watterson, Ross will see more reps in the slot. For Houston, this would be a no-brainer to pair with Brandin Cooks and rookie Nico Collins on the outside for years to come.Mills has the pressure riding on him, but Houston has faith in the new gunslinger.
