(TSX / STATS) -- HOUSTON -- Standing a few yards behind Tom Savage, Houston Texans coach Bill O'Brien had the perfect vantage point Tuesday to observe his starting quarterback's throwing delivery and mechanics.

O'Brien watched intently as Savage calmly delivered a series of spirals in individual drills during an organized team activity. Following a perfect strike over the middle from Savage to wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, O'Brien nodded in approval, shook his fist and told the quarterback group of Savage, rookie first-round draft pick Deshaun Watson and veteran Brandon Weeden that was what he was looking for.

All of the quarterbacks figure to benefit from O'Brien's increased, hands-on approach as the Texans' de facto offensive coordinator. O'Brien is operating as his own hand-picked replacement for former offensive coordinator George Godsey.
