Round 6: (C-) OLB Reshard Cliett

(Two compensatory picks remained after the trades with the Browns and the Jets in earlier rounds.)

A little competition and an interesting preseason audition to become a starter. That’s most likely what Houston is watching for from their first of two picks in the sixth round pick, outside linebacker Reshard Cliett.

Cliett fits the role of a pass rusher as he was credited with six sacks last season but only had three prior to that.

In the AFC South, frustrating quarterbacks is always a welcomed characteristic.
