LCB NFL Power Rankings: Week 14

December 4, 2008

The Texans were expecting improvements this year, but they didn't come. With injuries to key players like Matt Schaub, Ahman Green, and Chris Brown the Texans have struggled to a 5-7 record. But with those injuries came one major positive, they allowed rookie Steve Slaton to move up the depth chart and into the spotlight. Among the rookie backs of the NFL he is currently 3rd in rushing, 2nd in rushing touchdowns, and 2nd in receiving, despite having less carries than his rookie counterparts. The 5'9 back out of West Virginia is averaging an impressive 5 yards a carry and is on pace to run for 1200 yards. He is also becoming one of the reasons the Texans have any semblance of a chance to make it to the playoffs.

At the end of the season, it is probable that he won't receive the same amount of recognition the other rookie backs like Matt Forte and Chris Johnson are getting. But in a couple of years he may end up being the best of the group.
