Selected By: Kansas City Chiefs
Pick (Overall): 6 (70)
Houston is a bit undersized as a traditional 4-3 defensive end but fits the mold of a 3-4 outside linebacker. Gets off the ball quickly, has enough athleticism to get the corner and can also use the bull rush but needs to do a better job after contact and widen his array of moves. Flashes the ability to keep blockers off his body, set the edge, get off blocks, and make plays in pursuit but needs to show more intensity shedding and playing in a phone booth. Has the athleticism to drop into coverage but might struggle in man. He's an early Day 2 prospect.
