One last FSU player I would like to see is inside linebacker Christian Jones. Jones (6-3, 232) is the fourth rated ILB who could be drafted in the second or third round.
The 85th overall rated player, Jones is described as a tremendous athlete by Dane Brugler, saying:
"“Tremendous athlete with has fluid footwork who flawlessly flips his hips to blanket tight ends or receivers down the field in coverage. Tall and long, which he uses well in coverage.”"
His weaknesses were described as the following:
"“Needs to improve his awareness to turn his head and find the ball. Length is advantageous, but at times will cause him to play too upright.”"
Just another thought for the Texans to improve on the defensive side of the ball a little bit or at least make competition.
