Draft Preview: Houston Texans

April 19, 2009
Pick 15: Houston Texans
Strengths: Linebackers, pass offense
Weaknesses: Pass defense
The Pick: Peria Jerry, DT, Ole Miss

Again, the draftniks may kill this pick.

But this is a team stuck in a division that yields two games against Peyton Manning every season, as well as two more against the Titans‘ physical rushing attack. Even the Jags can be a little frisky when they feel like it. At this point, Houston needs to collect defenders all day long. A big run stopper like Jerry should do the trick.

On a side note, Homerism can’t remember the last time the Rebels had two top-15 picks. What a testament to Ed Orgeron‘s skills as a recruiter–and to his crappiness as a head coach.
