Yes. Even if the Texans takes a NT that's considered a run stuffer like Jesse Williams, he still helps in the passing game by taking up blocks. A quality NT will take up 2 linemen/blockers that will free up others like Watt and Smith to do their thing, and when that NT gets single blocking he can collapse the pocket from the middle and pressure the QB up the middle. A good NT doesn't have to be a quick penetrating type to have an effect on the passing game. Kawann Short does both jobs well, penetrating and handling double teams, thus the reason he's worthy of a 1st round pick.
