With this pick the AFC South has a new Thunder and Lightning duo that surpasses Smushed and Crushed. Wells is a legit top 10 pick who has flown under the radar all off season. He is a guy who can step in right away and split carries with Slaton 50/50. His running style give the Texans the power running game they lack, without giving up the big play potential. Wells gives us a guy similar to Double-D, but with the size to sustain that type of running game long term.
Round 2 pick 14
Rashad Johnson FS Alabama 5-11 203
A real ballhawk who plays with terrific instincts, and has a great football IQ. Has good flexibility, and smooth hips to stick with his man in coverage. A solid tackler in the open field, and a hard worker. Great leader on and off the field. His playmaking ability, and leadership had people talking about him as a 1st rounder during the season, but that seems to have trailed off some as guys have made big off season splashes. While not a big physical thumper, Johnson is solid in run support and can play either safety position.
Round 3 pick 13
Chris Baker DT Hampton 6-2 326
Good size, and mobility. Had a fantastic senior campaign with 69 tackles, 16.5 TFL and 8.5 sacks, even if it was at Hampton. Similar in many ways to highly touted B.J. Raji. Just the kind of widebody penetrating DT the Texans are looking for. Played DE in college. Ran a 5.03 40 at 326, and if he lost some weight could be a very athletic DT.
No offense intended against you personally, but that's a bad draft for the Texans. We don't need a RB in the 1st round, Slaton was great last year, and we need defense. FS is a wasted pick in the 2nd round because we just re-signed Wilson to a 3 yr. contract because he played very well at FS last year. It's not good when 2nd round picks sit on the bench. You redeamed yourself a little in the 3rd. It's not my personal pick but I wouldn't be upset with Baker, he fills a need.
