Pick No.185

Round: 6

Pick (Overall): 10 (185)

Pick Analysis: Houston-Carson's 2014 season ended early due to injury (67 tackles, three interceptions in nine games), but he returned to form in 2015 -- winning consensus All-American honors at free safety after starting for three years at cornerback. He has prototypical size and plenty of speed to make plays in the deep secondary, intercepting four passes, returning one for a 94-yard score in 2015. Houston-Carson also possesses secure tackling skills which helped him lead the team with 109 stops on the year (4.5 for loss). "DHC" started as a redshirt freshman (55 tackles, one interceptions, seven pass breakups) and sophomore (62 tackles, 4.5 TFL, 2 INT, 11 PBU), too. Houston-Carson also presents special-teams prowess, with nine career blocked kicks and working as a gunner on coverage units.
