2011 NFL Mock Draft: Aldon Smith And Prince Amukamara The Odds On Favorites To Be Texans

We've been back and forth with various mock drafts over the last few weeks, and if you've been paying any attention at all, you know the various names at this point. Prince Amukamara, Robert Quinn, Julio Jones, and Aldon Smith are the players most linked to the Houston Texans at No. 11 overall pick. But who is the actual odds on favorite? The Houston Chronicle's Lance Zierlein says it's Smith, who could slot in well in Wade Phillips' 3-4 defense.

Aldon Smith, OLB, Missouri - 3:1

Aldon Smith is said to be the target of the Texans as they like his edge pass rushing ability. Smith is unlikely to go in the first 10 picks so he should be at 11 for the Texans if they are truly interested in him.

Amukamara comes in second on the board at 4:1 odds, and Quinn, J.J. Watt, and Cameron Jordan all have 5:1 odds. It just goes to show you that there are a number of ways the Texans could ultimately lean with this pick. Quinn is knocked down only by Zierlein's thought that he will likely not be there for the Texans at 11. It would be a bit surprising for the Texans to pass up on Smith with Amukamara on the board, but I suppose we shall see.
