NFL Draft 2011: How Can Houston Texans Improve Defense Through Draft Picks?
NFL Draft 2011 the Houston Texans have to get over the playoff hump, but the way to do it will be to sure up a lost defense under new coordinator Wade Phillips.
Many thought that last season was going to be the year that the Titans would pass up the Colts to become the best team in the AFC South.
That was not to be as the Texans never seemed to get things together; especially on defense where they ranked near the bottom in many categories.
The biggest glaring need for the Texans lies in their secondary; which was atrocious last season.
Wes Bunting feels that adding to the young corners in the form of Prince Amukamara out of Nebraska would be the best fit.
"The Texans have a glaring need at corner and Amukamara is a guy who can play both press/off, finds the football well and has the ability to tackle in the run game. He isn’t going to be a shutdown guy at the next level, but will quickly develop into a solid starting corner".
Todd McShay feels that the Texans very well could end up taking Amukamara with the No. 11 pick, but has them taking Robert Quinn in his mock draft.
That is the way general way Mel Kiper has the Texans going as they will select a defensive end in J.J Watt out of Wisconsin.
It would come as no surprise to see Tennessee avoid taking a corner as they did last year at the draft. But, if they want to truly upgrade the position that clearly lacks the most they will draft Prince Amukamara or Jimmy Smith if available.
