ESPN -- Rank: 31
Placing Mills on the hot seat after one year seems unfair, but that's the life of a quarterback when you're not drafted in the first round. And while Mills had an impressive rookie year considering the turmoil he was surrounded by, with 16 touchdowns in 11 starts, he must significantly build on it. He has to prove there's no question he's the Texans' long-term answer because the organization has two first round picks in the 2023 NFL draft. If he doesn't perform up to par, the Texans will replace him.

The bad news: The front office has to go through this Lovie Smith charade for at least a full year before hiring the McCown of their dreams.
Nugget to remember: Sando's executive survey panned the Texans for building their roster with special teams in mind. That played out last season when they finished 30th in offensive DVOA, 23rd in defensive DVOA and ninth in special teams DVOA. It's a weird strategy, but at least it's a point of view.
