Re: Texans 2013 NFL Draft, Rounds 2 & 3
You look at our draft right now and you can certainly say one thing. We got four guys that could compete for a significant amount of playing time at positions that needed upgrading.
Hopkins is a sure fire starter.
Swearinger, if he can take hold of that nickel and dime role, will see alot of action.
Williams should be able to compete with Newton at some point this season for playing time. Perhaps he doesn't start at the beginning of the season, but he has a shot to get playing time at some point.
Montgomery could see starting time if they are serious about moving Reed inside. I don't really see that happening, although we don't have anyone right now that I am excited about at ILB outside of Cushing. Even as a backup, he will see the field as often, if not more often, than Mercy did last year.
