Watson took a beating in 2018 and was sacked a league-high 62 times and opponents hit him 126 times.
Watson clearly approved of the moves.
"We just find ways to get better," Watson said, via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle . "The front office knows exactly what they want, what they want to do with the organization and what we need to do to try to take that next step. I knew exactly what they were going to do in the draft, and what they want to do in the future.
"We drafted two young guys who can come in and compete and love football and want to come in and learn. They're going to have an opportunity to come in and learn from the veteran guys and continue to try to make us better."
The offseason moves to solidify the offensive line more than made sense when considering as Watson goes, so goes the Texans' offense.
With Howard and Scharping, the Texans have two rookies with versatility to play different positions on the offensive line, a plus on any NFL team.
