15. LB Clay Matthews (USC)
Pick made by ESPN.comís Paul Kuharsky: ďThe Texans may well be choosing between Brian Cushing and Matthews here, one with a better track record from college, the other thought by many to have more upside ahead. The Gary Kubiak-Rick Smith regime has leaned a lot on players itís connected to, and with Bruce Matthews now on the coaching staff, his nephew seems a fit.Ē Watch an interview with Matthews at the combine.
