Next up is Justin Houston. This guy either has better PR people on his side who make up his tapes or he is the best LB on the market. He is tall, has the right amount of bulk and his awareness looks sharp. He can get to the QB and wrap him up. He can force plays in the backfield. What little improvements that he will need to make will quickly be overcome with the right coaching staff. He’ll find himself with just that as I see him going to either the New England Patriots or the San Diego Chargers – the two teams (17th and 18th picks) before us in the Draft. Just our luck. He would have fit well in our 3-4 scheme.

Justin Houston:
6′ 3″
270 lbs.
NFL Combine Stats: 40 Time: 4.68 (7th), 2nd in Bench Press, and Broad Jump
