I think on defensive picks Demeco is getting the guys he wants and Caserio isn’t acting alone. Demeco may have had Adebawore rated lower than Horton.
, Horton and Adebawore will play 2 different positions in the NFL. Horton is a LDE, played a lot of 5 tech at TCU. Adebawore played outside at Nortwestern, but is considered an undersized 3 Tech in the NFL. At that point the Texans were just looking at something different.
Horton is not long or twitchy, but he wins on max effort and hustle. In the 4th round, you're looking for guys that can do it and want to do it. That's Horton.
