Our picks are in, and it's no surprise ESPN.com likes the Houston Texans to win the AFC South.

"Only a team as talented as Houston could lose Mario Williams and actually be better the following season," says Adam Schefter.

Johnathan Joseph is primed to be even better, I write in our Intelligence Report: "The cornerback is just what the Texans hoped for when they brought him in as a free agent last year. Now, in his second year, he's far more comfortable with what the team does defensively and with his environment. He's mentoring the other starter, Kareem Jackson, and helping make young receivers better more quickly. Joseph will continue to track the other team's best receiver, and that challenge will be giant considering some of the talented wideouts the Texans will encounter this year."

Gary Horton of Scouts Inc. still has questions about the offensive line.
