The Texans have a lot of good options at cornerback.
While Houston has a talented group of players, cornerback Kareem Jackson is the one to start, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.
If he’s healthy, Jackson would be the ideal player to start in Houston.
Rapoports reports the Texans will likely start safety J.J. Wilcox at cornerback, which would leave the door open for Jackson to be the Texans’ starter.
If the Texans start Jackson, the team could also try out defensive lineman Joe Kruger, who could be a strong candidate to play in Houston’s nickel packages.
With Jackson and Kruger both healthy, it’s very likely that Jackson will be the starting cornerback for Houston, which is a huge reason why the Texans are a lock to win the AFC South this season.
If Jackson is injured or not able to start this season, the Texans could be looking to make a run at the playoffs with their roster.
If they don’t, they could be in for another playoff season with a defense that is still young and talented.
Houston has been able to keep their roster young and healthy despite playing in a division with more talent.
