Houstonís stock has dropped leading up to the draft after he failed a drug test at the combine.
Is a good athlete with excellent size. He is a very good pass rusher, reads the snap count well, gets off the line quickly. Is a solid tackler. Can play in both the 3-4 and 4-3 scheme.
Was suspended in 2009 for 2 games for violating team rules. Needs to improve against the run, show more consistency in effort. Doesnít play hard every down.
