WATCH: Texans Davis Mills connects with Brandin Cooks; QB-WR duo poised for strong year

Houston Texans sophomore quarterback Davis Mills has been stacking efficient practices throughout training camp and is looking to build on a solid rookie performance.

Chemistry between quarterback and wide receivers is vital for success and Mills looks in tune with veteran leader, Brandin Cooks. The two connected on a fade route during goal-line drills — hopefully a sign of more touchdowns to come in the regular season.

There is a plethora of positivity surrounding Mills and whether or not he can make that natural rookie to sophomore leap. Houston’s QB1 is confident in the work he’s put in.

“I felt the progressions towards the end of last season, and now coming out here with momentum and stacking on it has allowed me to play really fast,” Mills told reporters Aug. 1.

While Mills’ play on the field has impressed many, it’s his leadership that strikes Cooks.

“Davis Mills is deserving of being a captain with the leader he’s become,” Cooks told reporters July 29.

As this Mills-Cooks relationship continues to blossom, Houston’s offense will look to improve upon their 30th-ranked scoring offense last season. Expect plenty of connections between the young quarterback Mills and the veteran receiver Cooks.
