Houston Texans nab only defensive player of the draft to start the sixth round
Markquese Bell is an old-school safety. The ones that used to consistently deliver the big hits- like Kam Chancellor and Troy Polamalu. Bell is a standout safety from Florida A&M, who amassed 95 tackles and two sacks on the season. Take a look at his highlights and watch how good of a replacement he is for Justin Reid, who is most likely gone once free agency rolls around.
Dameon Pierce comes in at pick number 202, and Pierce is the receiving back compliment to Kenneth Walker. Pierce’s shiftiness and ability to make jukes that would embarrass defenders for years are evident in the highlights.
Coming in at 209 is the punting sensation in college football. Matt Araiza from San Diego State. When you see punters get this much hype, it’s worth bringing one in Araiza averaged 51.2 yards per punt, which is the best in the NCAA If he doesn’t work out, that’s fine. It’s only a sixth-round pick.
Our final pick is Cal Adomitis, who will be Jon Weeks’ heir apparent Adomitis will probably be signed to the practice squad after the first round of cuts, where he’ll wait to replace Weeks, who can’t play that much longer.
