Re: Texans Talk Member Mock Draft
With the 33rd pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, the Denver Broncos select Clay Matthews, LB from USC.
Thoughts: Denver needs all the front 7 help they can get with switching to a 3-4 defense. They got an anchor at DE with Tyson Jackson in the 1st round. They need help at Safety so Chung was a very close selection here, but the upside of Matthews was too much for the Broncos to pass. This kid is shooting up the boards and will most likely be a last 1st/early 2nd round pick come draft time.
Clay is a great pass rushing LB, is smart, a good leader and will be able to help out on special teams as well. He's a versatile LB that they can move around in their 3-4 and even put him as a pass rushing DE occasionally when they show a 4-3 look. I can see New England and Miami sniffing him in the 1st round.
1st round- Tyson Jackon, DE, LSU
2nd round- Clay Matthews, LB, USC
