WCG Mock Draft - The Houston Texans Select...

CURRENT SELECTION


Clay Matthews
USC
Linebacker

ANALYSIS: I was hoping that Malcom Jenkins fell to me, but if he is gone I expect the Texans to go with either of the USC OLBs, Clay Mathews or Brian Cushing. While some say that Cushing is more talented than Mathews I think his injury problems stop him from getting picked this high. Plus, Mathew’s uncle is on the coaching staff so that may help him get picked here. The guys over at the Battle Red Blog seemed to agree with me last I checked. He brings size to their linebacking core and should be able to provide an effective pass-rush opposite Mario Williams. He was found to have steroids in his system so that might hurt his stock, but since this is Houston’s main area of need and Cushing also had steroids in his system, I still see him being picked. (EDIT by ChiFan - None of the prospects alleged to have taken banned substances have officially tested positive) 

Other possibilities: Vontae Davis CB Illinois and Beanie Wells RB OSU.
