NFL Draft Results 2011: Brooks Reed Headed to Texans as 3-4 Linebacker
NFL Draft Results 2011 See the Texans Picking Up Brooks Reed from Arizona
Yesterday when the Texans took J.J. Watt with their first pick, I was astounded and frankly a little angry that he was the pick. Why would a team with solid defensive ends and a changing defense ignore holes in the secondary and at outside linebacker to take a position of depth?
Well the Texans made amends in the second round by picking up former Arizona defensive end Brooks Reed. While Reed could be a defensive end in a 4-3 scheme, he is a perfect fit as an outside linebacker in the Texans’ new 3-4 scheme.
While Reed is often compared to Clay Matthews from Green Bay, the biggest similarity between the two is the long blond locks. That isn’t to say that Brooks couldn’t be a solid player in the NFL, but I think the comparisons are unfair.
The only remaining problem for the Texans is the secondary.
It will be interesting to pay attention to the careers of Robert Quinn and Rahim Moore because the Texans had the chance to take both of those guys and they would have been fantastic additions to the new defense.
