Texans Draft: Trevardo Williams

With the 124th pick

Trevardo Williams

The Houston Texans have selected defensive end/outside linebacker Trevardo Williams from the University of Connecticut. Williams is the essence of what a pass rusher is and looks to bolster a questionable 2012 pass rushing team. Williams is an explosive player with natural pass rushing ability. He can close on ball carriers with ease and is an athletic piece that can be moved around due to his ability.


Pick Analysis: Williams is to be competing at the weak side outside linebacker position, and using his pass rush ability is what will be needed from the beginning. It will be interesting to see what happens with the positions, but the Texans have upgraded their outside linebacker position with this pick and Montgomery last night. Brooks Reed could possibly be on the move to the inside (just a guess).
