Texans Owner Bob McNair Not Worried About Team's QB Situation

Jonathan Newton/The Washington Post via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The NFL Draft has come and gone. And even though the Houston Texans were unable to land one of the top quarterback prospects, team owner Bob McNair isn't concerned.

"Well there are 11 positions on offense and defense; very few teams have all of them filled to their satisfaction," McNair told ESPN.com. "I don't know if we've ever been in that position. I think we're a pretty solid team and we've got our core players who are still around who are outstanding."

The Texans did select a quarterback, former Pittsburgh signal thrower Tom Savage, in the fourth round. He'll join Ryan Fitzpatrick, T.J. Yates, and Case Keenum.

They were also able to land the number one overall pick in last week's draft, and selected former defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.

McNair continued, "That's why I said I just thought we need to fill in some holes, which we have done, but you aren't going out and completely tearing the team up and rebuilding it from scratch. That's not the case at all."

The Texans started the 2013 season 2-0 before losing their last 14 games.
