Joint Texans Practices/Hard Knocks:

Competition:

"Everybody understands in pro football, man, there's going to be somebody behind you, somebody next to you you're going to have to compete with every day," Gruden said. "In order to keep your job, you've got to maintain a high level of excellence."

"If you're a starter right now, you've got to maintain it," he said. "Otherwise, somebody is going to be right on your heels. That's the way it should be. We have great competition at every position. It's exciting to watch these guys play."

Offensive Line Versatility:

Tom Compton practiced at left tackle and right guard this week.

"You have to be able to play right guard, left guard and center. You have to move around. You have to practice it," Gruden said. "That's why these guys are moving around so much. So on game day it's, ‘OK, get at left guard... but I've never taken a snap,' you know what I mean? So it's very important to get their reps."

Gruden praised the team's offensive line and coach Bill Callahan for "working very well together" this offseason.

"Their communication is excellent and they're all learning and they're all getting better," Gruden said, "and that's kind of the theme around here."
