When i picked the texans for this draft i was thinking cb was the only possible way to go ,but with the 10 picks that went before me one of the best players in the draft was still on the board.
Nick Fairley is the best DT in the draft and is this years Ndamukong Suh as regards to a one man wrecking machine that will cause havock in the backfield . He is a little small to play NT in a 3-4 but i can see him convert to a DE with easy .
Mario Williams and Nick Fairley at both ends will help the texans in lots of ways . They ranked 13th against the run and dead last against the pass .
Having Fairley should help them become a top ten defence against the run and should help them slightly in the pass by making QB's hurry before they get smashed . Some people say fairley is a dirty player and i would agree but it's the type of player the texans need to bring a toughness to the team that they don't have.
Another reason i picked Fairley before Prince is because if Prince keeps dropping there will be a lot better CB's left when the texans pick again in the 2nd round .
Wade Phillips taking over as D cordinator should help the texans before they draft any players , but having Nick Fairley , Mario Williams , Brian Cushing and Zack Diles as four of his front seven will help him build a great defence from a good foundation .
