2011 NFL Mock Draft: CBS Says It's Cameron Jordan For The Texans

Both Rob Rang and Chad Reuter of CBSSports.com have new mock drafts up, and both of them involve California defensive end Cameron Jordan getting snapped up by the Houston Texans. Jordan projects as a 3-4 defensive end, and as Julio Jones and Robert Quinn have spiraled up draft boards, the new trend is for the Texans to get “stuck” with either Wisconsin end J.J. Watt or Jordan after the run ends.

Oddly enough, in their drafts one of Quinn and Jones are on the board for the Texans pick, but they instead choose to go with Jordan. Jordan very well may be a dynamite pro, and 3-4 defensive ends are the strength of this first round class, but I’d be shocked to see the Texans go that way if the board plays out in either of those directions.

Look for the Texans to explore a trade down if they can’t get a defensive back or 3-4 outside linebacker who is qualified for the spot. Or look for them to eschew Jordan in favor of Missouri linebacker Aldon Smith if neither Quinn, Von Miller, or Prince Amukamara is on the board.
