The Houston Texans lost a number of high profile players in free agency this year which means they'll be looking to replace some of those guys in the 2012 NFL draft which starts on Thursday night. SB Nation's Texans blog, Battle Red Blog, addressed the Texans needs entering the NFL draft.

In no particular order, I'd say the top needs are LB (especially OLB with the departure of Mario Williams), WR (a down-field threat opposite Andre Johnson would be very nice), and OL (while the Texans are confident they won't experience a huge drop-off replacing Mike Brisiel and Eric Winston, depth is a concern). DL and CB could also use some attention from the perspective of adding depth.
