Dalton Hilliard. 22. player. 10. <p>The Texans finally moved on from Arian Foster after yet another season lost to soft tissue injuries. The pieces are already there on defense for the team to be successful, but the offense desperately needed to take a step forward. Unfortunately, the Texans had Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett at quarterback and Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes at running back. They signed Brock Osweiler and Lamar Miller to replace those guys atop the depth chart, but they could use a complement to them in the backfield. Hilliard is the perfect complementary running back. He is a smaller runner who excels in the passing game. He gives the offense another legitimate weapon that they did not have last year.</p>. RB. LSU

Arkansas-Pine Bluff. Terron Armstead. 23. player. 60. <p>The Vikings have somehow sold themselves on the idea that Matt Kalil can start for them again this season. He has been a train wreck at left tackle for the past two seasons, and the Vikings have to be glad he is in the final season of his contract. The offensive line needed to be upgraded at multiple positions, and they did that by re-signing Mike Harris and bringing in Andre Smith. However, Kalil needs to be upgraded. Teddy Bridgewater is a solid quarterback, but he is not the biggest of guys and needs all the protection he can get. Armstead is one of the best tackles in the league. His athleticism is off the charts, and the improvement he has shown each year in the league would have any team salivating at the idea of bringing him in.</p>. OT

player. 56. <p>The Bengals defensive line is in need of a boost. Carlos Dunlap and Geno Atkins are still good players, but Michael Johnson and Domata Peko have regressed significantly. Margus Hunt has yet to develop into more than an athlete, and their depth took a hit as guys walked in free agency. Wayne Martin provides position flexibility and pass-rushing ability the Bengals need to cope with the loss of Reggie Nelson in the secondary and aging cornerbacks in Adam Jones and Leon Hall.</p>. DE/DT. Arkansas. Wayne Martin. 24
