View Full Version : Defensive Tackles

As far as I see it the Texans need a 1 position DT, aka NT, to help solidify their Defensive Line. Typically they weigh 330 to 360 pounds and line up over the left shoulder of the Center. Here is a small sample of a few Defensive Tackles available in this year's draft that meet that standard.

Alan Branch 6ft-6in 331lbs Michigan
Paul Soliai 6ft-4in 334lbs Utah
Stanley Doughty 6ft-1in 331lbs South Carolina

I have heard of Branch and he may or may not be available when the Texans pick in the First Round. If the Texans don't pick him then they may draft another in a later round. Can anyone shed some more light on Soliai and Doughty as well as any other NT's that the Texans might draft?
