Texans Draft: Chris Jones

With the 198th Pick

Chris Jones

Chris Jones

The Houston Texans have selected defensive lineman Chris Jones from Bowling Green University. A stout interior defender, Jones has some pass rushing ability that could help the defense. Jones will probably be a nose tackle for the Texans moving forward and compete for a spot on the roster.

Considered one of the most productive defensive lineman in the country, Jones’ motor is what will give him a shot to make the Texans roster.


Pick Analysis: Hard to say whether Jones will make an impact on the team at this moment, but trusting what the Texans’ front office is doing with drafting Jones should be all fans need to know. Jones’ biggest attribute has to be his pass rushing ability from the inside, one thing the Texans have lacked since Wade Phillips came to run the defense.
