2011 NFL Mock Draft: View From The Sideline Mocks Kerrigan To Texans At No. 11

The Houston Texans are looking hard to fill their holes on defense in the NFL Draft, and one often unexplored option has been Ryan Kerrigan, who scouts are torn on as a 3-4 linebacker. However, he is regarded as a very high motor player, and he’s got all sorts of production. If the Texans think he can be a 3-4 OLB, it would make sense for them to pick him at No. 11 overall, and that’s exactly how John Harris’ mock over at A View From The Sideline plays out.

I like the Texans next two picks in the draft much more, as Brandon Harris seems a legitimate option in the second round should he be there and Dontay Moch is a terrific athletic prospect should he be able to convert the tools into skills at the NFL level. Those two are almost staples of the Julio Jones-based mock. However, it sure would have looked better if the Texans had paired them with Prince Amukamara, who was also available at No. 11 in this mock.
