HISTORICALLY GREAT DEFENSE IN HOUSTON - DAVID SHA - 3/23/2015

HISTORICALLY GREAT DEFENSE IN HOUSTON

This time of year drives me crazy as a Texans fan. Most of the free agency frenzy is over and the draft is a month away. I don’t get much time to check out the draft prospects, so I decided to tweet "Draft Diamonds" and ask them if they thought a top quality edge rusher would be there when the Texans pick at #16 on April 30th. They tweeted back two words… Bud Dupree. So I checked him out on youtube.

The University of Kentucky kid has a nice burst off of the line. Dupree always seems to be untouched on his way to the QB, and he finishes well. Of course, youtube only shows his strengths. So I asked draft diamonds about weaknesses.

DRAFT DIAMOND'S RESPONSE:
“@DavidShaSports he is a stud a top tier rusher”

If Dupree is drafted by the Texans and he’s as good as his highlights suggest, then my squad will have two bookend QB seeking missiles in JD Clowney and Bud Dupree.

This is a big "if", but…. If Clowney and Louis Nix III are healthy and Pagan develops, then the Texans will have a young stud-filled defensive side of the ball for years to come. Mix the youngsters with vets like JJ Watt, Jared Crick, Brian Cushing, Kareem, J Jo, Swag Swearinger, and newly aquired NT, Vince Wilfork, and former Bronco Safety Rahim Moore and the "Bulls on Parade" might be parading their way right into some deep playoff runs.

I’m hoping Max Bullough becomes a solid ILB next to Cush. Romeo Crenell should keep his eye out for an anchor at ILB in the draft just in case.

Either way, this time of year is all speculation and hope. So I’m hoping that I speculated correctly and we draft a monster like Dupree, so that we can have a defense that gives offensive coordinators anxiety attacks, and makes offensive lines turn on each other for giving up sacks.

I'm envisioning a dominating defense that will make quarterbacks fake injuries, so that they don’t have to see us on Sundays, Mondays, or Thursday nights.
