Olb, I'm a big dion Jordan fan. Exccelent coverage skills, can play man to man on some te's even. Can also play in the middle in certain packages. He's also a good pass rusher. 6'6", long arms and athletic.
But I have no idea what the texans are thinking. Can only state who I like.
I think the texans might need to get creative to address their ilb issues though.
I like Kevin Reddick. I think BL is a big fan of his too. I know badboy has been hyping up Andrew Jackson for months. He's a big plugger that would fit in that other ILB role. A younger, more athletic Bradie James. We could take a guy like Mauti in the mid-rounds. He won't be anything special IMO, but could be a solid player.
As for OLB, I do like Jordan. I really like Chase Thomas. I think he'll be a better player than Reed in a few years. Travis Long is a sleeper prospect. Very similar to Barwin except he's more of a LB while Barwin is more of a DE.
