Re: My 7 round Texans mock draft.
This is probably why everybody has him going in the 3rd. Got this from bleacher report. I personally don´t agree. He has a lot of good tape vs quality competition and a good motor.
After missing the majority of his senior season due to a torn pectoral muscle, a strong showing at the combine was important to Jared Crick’s draft stock. With a poor performance at the combine, Crick’s stock continues to decline.
Crick weighed in at only 279 pounds, undersized for a defensive tackle, which means that his best fit will come as a defensive end in a 3-4 scheme. However, Crick did not show impressive athleticism for a defensive end at the combine, running disappointing times of 4.99 seconds in the 40-yard dash and 7.47 seconds in the three-cone drill.
When on the field for Nebraska, Crick was productive, but his next-level potential is very limited. He is worth a fourth-round draft choice.
