Justin Houston

School: Georgia
Position: DE
Bio: Two-year starter awarded all-Conference honors after his sophomore and junior seasons and named to several All-American teams last year. Junior totals included 67/10/18.5, with one interception and two pass break-ups. Sophomore totals included 39/7.5/15.
Positive: Disruptive, game-changing college defender with potential at a number of positions in the NFL. Built low to the ground, naturally gets leverage on opponents, and exploits immobile blockers out of a three-point stance. Forceful up the field, can bend off the edge, and effectively uses his hands to defeat blocks. Fires off the snap with a great first step, plays with terrific pad level, and makes a lot of athletic plays. Fluid moving in all directions of the field and tough to knock off his feet. Plays with balance, smooth dropping off the line in space, and shows the ability to immediately alter his angle of attack.
Negative: Struggles trying to chase the action out to the flanks. Occasionally stood up over tackle and is very late to react. Despite his forty time slows down playing in space.
Analysis: Houston was a terrific pass rushing defensive end in college but may be asked to play outside linebacker in a 3-4 alignment at the next level. He causes a lot of impact up the field at defensive end yet seems very indecisive making plays in reverse. He's overrated by many because of his deceptive statistics, and the transition to the next level may be a difficult one for Houston.
