Texans must tackle protection problems
Houston lacks an upper echelon left tackle who can get movement in the running game and, more importantly, protect 2002 first-round pick David Carr's blindside. While he has good size and he works hard to sustain his blocks, 2003 third-round pick Seth Wand hasn't progressed as hoped and may be a better fit at guard. It doesn't help that ROT Todd Wade is a far better run blocker than pass blocker because it forces the Texans to give both of their tackles help in pass protection.
