stellar defense which boasts defensive end JJ Watt and linebackers Brian Cushing and Jadeveon Clowney, Houston drafted a few intriguing prospects, safety K.J. Dillon and tackle D.J. Reader who add depth and could fill in as rotational players this season. The Texans have been among the top defenses in the league for the past several years and are looking to keep that momentum going forward in 2016.
