Kayvon Thibodeaux has a chance to be Mario Williams 2.0 for the Houston Texans

This is presuming the Texans are going to have the first overall pick, as sadly they will give Detroit their only win of the year. That’s a whole different subject, but Kayvon Thibodeaux is an undeniable talent at the defensive end/edge position.

His ability to “long-arm” the offensive line in the pass rush gives him access to any move he wants. The 6’5″, 258-pound sophomore out of Los Angeles, California has grown into a force on the Ducks’ defense, making them one of the best teams in the nation.

Thibodeaux can also slipstream edge blockers and scream into opposing backfields and gobble up tackles for loss. The highlight video linked above will show just how good he can be at making a crucial stop inside the goal line or on fourth down.

Thibodeaux gets the nod over Aidan Hutchinson of Michigan, as Thibodeaux has more of a burst off the edge and can handle being the read key on an option play and still making a big tackle to prevent any positive momentum to be gained for the offense.

Unless someone else takes over the top spot, it looks like an Oregon Duck will be the first player off the board.
