2011 NFL Mock Draft: Will The texans Look To Boost Their Defensive Secondary?

The Texans were pretty successful on the offensive side of the ball last year. It was on the defensive side, particularly the defensive secondary, where they ran into a lot of problems. It will be an area of the roster that I'm sure the team will address through the draft, even as early as the first round if the right prospects is available. According to Nolan Nawrocki at Yahoo, that prospect could be Prince Amukamara.

Must find way to upgrade league's worst secondary, replace Dunta Robinson.

Brief, but accurate. Amukamara would be a good pick for the Texans, in that he fills a position of need while still representing good value at the eleventh pick overall. Most mock drafts that I've seen have Amukamara going in the top ten, with the Cowboys as one of the most frequent destinations.

Amukamara has all the tools to be a shut down corner at the next level. He has excellent size, and has above average agility. He is a converted running back, but he still possesses the ball skills and instincts to make him a top flight corner in the NFL. I'm just not sure he'll be available when the Texans pick.
