That's solely looking at what two positions were talking about and where they are in relation to each other. NT and DE. It would crush OLs and TEs and RBs that have to stay in to block. No mention of "upgrade" from our current roster. : )
The receiver depth is so deep, I've been thinking if we wait until the second round, then Jesse Williams - Alabama, 6'-3", 325, 4.95 - rated as late 1st or high 2nd - would likely be available at #27. His strength is rated as 9 and his best projected position is a 1-gap 34 NT. In college he wasn't much of a pass rusher, but he generated push up the middle, anchored against the run and demanded double teams. Seems to be the perfect fit for the Texans.
