The Texans could use some depth at OLB, and the sixth round could be that spot to add to the position on the roster.

Shembo is the 13th overall rated OLB, and if he is still available in the sixth round it would be a very good selection for the Texans. The 6-2, 254-pound OLB is known to “always play at full effort with his hair on fire.” The Texans could use some of that on their defense.
