Virginia OG Branden Albert

Draft Profile

houstonvince with the pick:

Ideally the Texans were targeting Cromartie from Tennessee State. They want a CB because Dunta Robinson has surgery on both his MCL and ACL and will be out till mid year. However, selecting Flowers or Talib is too much of a reach.

The Texans therefore move in another direction and pick. Brandon Albert from Virginia. He is a versatile blocker who can play Offensive Guard, yet may have the talent to play offensive tackle. They hired the guru of zone blocking, Alex Gibbs to head up the offensive line. They need fast lineman, under 300 pounds that can get to the second level. Brandon has the speed Alex covets.
