  • Justin Houston where is he projected

    To go??? Would he be there for say the Jets?? Is he a good 3-4 OLB/DE pass rusher prospect??

  • #2
    He's projected as a 34 OLB (where he played) in the late first round to early second, so yea, I would say he's a potential candidate for the Jets.

      Maybe. Some have him in the Top 15, others in the late 1st round.
      He could play OLB in a 3-4. I think he goes somewhere between #16 (Jaguars) and #24 (Saints).

        He's going to be fighting in that group of guys like Aldon Smith, Ryan Kerrigan, and a few others to be a mid to late first round 34 OLB.

          Yeah. So many teams need pass rushers. Quinn, Kerrigan, Smith and Houston will all be first rounders and Von Miller has a high chance to be as well.

            Don't see him getting past KC, or maybe Baltimore at the latest.

            So very slim chance he falls to the Jets unless they move up.

              I think Justin Houston is picked in the first 21 picks (with Kansas City being the likely floor.) Miami, New England, and San Diego all work in the 15-18 range. Ultimately I think he winds up there. Most likely a 3-4 rush LB.

                I don't really see KC taking him. Sure they need a pass rusher opposite of Tamba but they have two young guys in Studebaker and Cameron Sheffield (a guy they liked who missed the whole season with injury) who they will probably let develop. Not to mention, Pioli has a history of not taking edge rushers early on in the draft.

                  I'll make this simple.

                  If Houston blazes in his 40, better than 4.65, and tests well at the combine and looks smooth in dropback drills, if he shows up at 6'3, 245+# he's going to be the first OLB off the board.

                  I think he goes top 15.

                    I'd take him over any 3-4 OLB in this draft besides maybe Robert Quinn. Definitely my ideal pick for the Packers, but he'll probably be long gone before that.

                      Anybody else think that a 4-3 team in need of a RDE that watches Quinn, A. Smith, and Kerrigan leave the board take a shot at Houston?

                        They could, a 4-3 team select Houston for RDE, but I don't think it's a great fit for him in the pros.

                          One thing I like about Houston is that fact he spent time already in a 3-4, he is not a transitional guy who spent 3-4 years in college with his hand in the dirt. He can make that effortless transition and play OLB. I would think he could be picking anywhere between 20-45.

                          <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
                          <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

                            If guys like Kerrigan, Smith, Quinn, Jordan, Watt etc are gone by 17 I would not be against taking Houston there. Definite mid-late first rounder. I would actually be surprised if he got by KC

                              He spent time in a 3-4, but to say that he can make an "effortless transition" is going too far. Watch Houston this year, and you'll see someone who almost never dropped into coverage, and basically was sent after the quarterback on every play from either a two or three-point stance. His role was more of a defensive end who would stand up and rush the passer from the edge at times. That said, I think he's a solid pick in the middle of the first round.
