Should the Houston Texans take Garett Bolles in the first round?
One of the knocks on Bolles is that he’s 25 years-old. Obviously a few years older than people would like for a rookie. But he possesses the toughness and athleticism that NFL teams drool over.
Bolles is also very confident in his skills
as a football players.

Another player I’m sure the Texans had their eye on is safety Marcus Williams.
Williams is a play-making safety that has a nose for the football. Here’s what NFL.com’s draft profile says about him:
"Ball-hawking free safety who has outstanding ball skills and has shown a propensity for causing turnovers. He can play from a high centerfield spot and utilizes his instincts to swoop down and challenge throws. He’s able to get running backs down, but he’s not physical enough to be a combination safety. NFL teams love defensive backs with athletic traits, instincts and ball skills. If he works out well before the draft, he should move up team boards."
Williams recorded two forced fumbles and five interceptions during his final season with the Utes.
Williams is currently projected to go in between the second or third round. He could certainly help the Texans replace veteran Quintin Demps.
