Rules: This is an estimate of how many individual Texans players are locks to make the 53-man roster for the 2013 season. I’m making two assumptions here; 1) These players are on the opening training camp roster (not cut or traded) 2) These players are healthy.

This isn’t a representation of how many “open roster spots” there are on the team.
