Round 5
Ryan Carrethers, DT, Arkansas State

This Arkansas State DT is the 15th-rated DT in the rankings, as he is 6-1, 330 pounds.

In 13 games at DT this season, he totaled 93 tackles, second-most on the team (34 unassisted) with four sacks and three QB hurries.

I think in this round a player of his abilities to clog up the front line, plus the ability to make tackles, could be a big advantage for a Texans defense that could use some help on the interior line next season.
