NFL analyst Brian Baldinger discusses Houston Texans guard Kenyon Green's impressive performance against the 49ers last week, and gushes about Green being everything a team would want at the guard position.

The timing of this post has to excite fans, as Green missed a good portion of the preseason dealing with a concussion. With Green back in the fold and looking impressive, it appears the Texans nailed their pick at No. 15 overall, and the offensive line should be vastly improved with a healthy Laremy Tunsil and Kenyon Green holding down the left side of the line.

The Texans will put that to the test on Sept 11 when they face the Colts live from NRG to start the season.
