I really want to make sure the Texans sure up their defensive line and why not go back-to back with interior linemen selections?

Hart (6-6, 287 pounds) was a second-team coaches All-Pac-12 player for the 2013 season.

It says of his strengths:

“Possesses a stout frame and long arms, well-suited to handling the tough duties along the line of scrimmage. Much better athlete than he looks. Surprisingly quick off the snap.”

Rob Rang says of Hart:

“Don’t be surprised if he ultimately out-plays many defensive linemen selected ahead of him.”
