Ahead of the start of free agency, Insider is providing buyer's guides for all 32 teams: biggest need positions from Football Outsiders, top targets from KC Joyner and Matt Williamson and predictions on how everything will play out from our NFL Nation team reporters.

Included below are links to every team's article. This is the entry for the Houston Texans.

Biggest needs

Cornerback: Kareem Jackson and Johnathan Joseph played well in 2014. Jackson recorded a 59 percent success rate in coverage and allowed 6.2 adjusted yards per pass. Joseph had a 51 percent success rate and allowed 6.9 adjusted yards per pass. But Jackson is a free agent. Joseph's status for 2015 is also questionable, since he turns 31 in April and has an $8.5 million base salary.
