Kalil (knee) will vie for the starting left tackle job with incumbent Julien Davenport, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
ANALYSIS
Kalil is a former Pro Bowl left tackle who missed all of 2018 due to a knee injury. Competition should be a common theme on the offensive line, not just left tackle, during Houston's offseason training activities and training camp. The Texans' offensive line was below average in pass blocking and last in run blocking, per Pro Football Focus. No quarterback was sacked more or dropped back under pressure more often than Deshaun Watson in 2018, so it's natural to see changes up front. Davenport graded out 97th in run blocking and 94th in pass blocking among tackles.

Kalil is the starting left tackle.
Kalil is the starting left tackle. He's coming off disappointing season, but did play hurt as he had both of his knees scoped in January.
Kahil is Minnesota's starting left tackle. The 2012 first-round draft pick was seen as a key component of a playoff team in 2012, but struggled last season and had minor knee surgery in the offseason. Perhaps the injury limited his play, but his rebound will be key to reviving Minnesota's offense.
After a stellar rookie season, Kalil was selected to his first career Pro Bowl. He will return to start at left tackle.
Kalil, the No. 4 overall pick in April's draft, is being counted on to be a pillar of the Vikings' offensive line for years to come, where he is already penciled in as the team's starting left tackle.
