#33 Houston Texans: Stephon Tuitt, DE/DT ND

Rory’s Take: Tuitt does many things well and in a #$ can be a solid run defender and get some pass rush in nickel. Adding a guy like this could allow the Texans to cut some older players and make some room under the cap long term.

Chase’s Take: We have had Tuitt listed in the first round based on his versatility in earlier mocks, the market has cooled on him a bit, so this spot right off the top in the second might be a good fit for a smart defensive lineman who can play both on the interior and the outside. I think his true calling in the pros will be as a 3-4 run stopper on the outside of the line.
