His scouting reports just suggest that his CB technique is raw but his nose for the ball and tackling are great along with his physical gifts. Seems more like a safety to me but whoever gets him is definitely going to have a shot a real game changer.

I agree with bah. He doesn't look to have a safety mindset when he plays. Malcolm Jenkins has more of a safety mindset.

I would take Smith or Delmas at 15 before I would take Davis at 15 & move him to safety.

It might be a bit of a reach, but I'd go with Jerry myself. Possibly Mathews or Davis? Y'all know my thoughts on Cushing.

I stated in another post that if the Texans are stuck with the 15th they're going to have to reach a little bit. It appears the scenerio has surfaced here in our draft.

So guys, what are we actually looking for in a defensive football player?

Tenacity? Instinct? Toughness?

With the 15th overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, the Houston Texans Select:

Brian Cushing OLB USC


The pick was Malcolm Jenkins. Before PencilNeck picked him up I just knew he was going to fall into our laps. I had to take some time after that and rethink my choice. The obvious scenario for the real draft was to trade down, but my hands are tied there. BTW, I was jacking with everyone about Sanchez! Figured it would be an early April Fool's.

Anyways, my choice was only defense. It's the weakest part of our team and is obviously still trying to be molded. I want toughness, killer instinct and someone that bleeds the game. I looked at the highlights again for Peria Jerry, Brian Cushing, Vontae Davis, James Laurinaitis and Larry English. Cushing stood out the most. He grinds and always flys to the ball. He can play off the edge, cover a TE or come up and blow up an OL. The only bad thing it that there are so many studs on the USC defense that you kind of wonder what role he plays. He also dodges some blocks but is quick enough to recover and make the play.

At the end of the day, I wanted not just defense, but someone that bleeds a defensive mentality. Cushing is the one. English and Jerry were in a close 2nd. V Davis is a little raw and we already have some projects at db.

Let the booing start!!!

Peria Jerry plays the same type of DT as Amobi Okoye. We don't need another Amobi - we need a true,wide-bodied NT. Trouble is - there's nobody worth the 15th pick who fits the mold.

It's a tought spot. In the real draft the Texans are in the exact position that most teams want to trade out of. Can't trade in the mock though so might as well go BPA and take the heat for it afterward.

That doesn't mean it's a bad pick at all - I'd rather everyone pick who they think is best for their team rather than think they have to be a contrarian for the sake of picking someone different.

Personally - I like Matthews over Cushing, but I can't knock the Cushing pick.

Tell me why though? I looked at the film and combine numbers and just didn't see why Matthews would be picked before Cushing.

BTW - when I say "film", I mean youtube highlights!
