I'm not near as concerned about the OL but I'm still looking hard there also. This team needs talent and depth in the trenches.
As well you should be and why on my posted mock I have Nix in first and Smallwood in 2nd. I also share your concern about Cush but he should recover well from leg but to what level? I would not be shocked if Houston drafted two players for ILB but more likely UDFAs to round out that area. I too am slightly optimistic about the Oline but need some improvement against Colts. JaWuan James looked good today against Missouri in a loss.
