And with the #15 Pick in the Arrowhead Pride Community Mock Draft, the Houston Texans Select...


Ohio St. CB Malcolm Jenkins

ChiefDude with the pick...

The Houston Texans are a team still yearning for their first winning season despite having the 3rd ranked offense in 2008. If they want to make the playoffs in 2009, the Texans will have to fill some holes in their 22nd ranked defense. Their D-line is in pretty good shape with 1st round picks DT Amobi Okoye, NT Travis Johnson, and pro bowl RDE Mario Williams. Houston also acquired FA Antonio Smith last month to solidify the left side. At LB, Houston has pro bowl MLB DeMeco Williams and in the secondary they have franchise CB Dunta Robinson. It's a fairly impressive group of starters but they still have significant needs at OLB, CB, and S.

There are a couple of key play-makers in this year's draft that could put Houston in the running this year. CB Malcolm Jenkins is one of those guys. A top draft prospect of 2008, Jenkins decided to put one more year on the books at OSU and ended up earning the Jim Thorpe award as a result. Though capable of running a 4.3 40, Jenkins' average 4.5 time at the Combine seems to have lowered his stock. That may work out well for Houston who could end up with a steal here. Bottom line; Jenkins is the BPA at pick 15 of our mock draft and a great fit for the Texans at either FS or CB.

Previous pick: CB Vontae Davis
