NFL Rumors: Texans 2nd Rd Targets

ESPN AFC South blogger Paul Kuharsky discusses three possible targets for the Houston Texans in the second-round.

Houston took Wisconsin DE J.J. Watt at No. 11 in the first-round which is a great pick for a defense that’s looking to make a tough transition to a 3-4 defense. Watt is a very athletic defensive end that orginally played tight end before switching to the defensive side of the ball.

Kuharsky sees the Texans continuing to focus on their defense and lists Aaron Williams, Rahim Moore and Justin Houston as three targets that would make sense for them in the second-round.

Williams is a solid defensive back that some see as a safety but has a chance to play corner in the NFL.

Moore is seen as the best true safety prospect in the draft which is position that Houston will have to consider now that Marcus Pollard may be gone in the coming weeks.

There are some questions surrounding Justin Houston after failed a drug test at the NFL Scounting Combine back in February but he’s seen as a great talent at linebacker which is something of a premium in the middle rounds of this years draft.

Anyone of these players could go a long way towards solidifying one of the worst defenses in NFL history.
