Round Two NFL Mock Draft: Texans Given Brooks Reed In SB Nation's Mock

Well, the Texans have assured themselves of some more solid play on the defensive line after J.J. Watt was selected by them with the eleventh overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. Who can they pair him with in Round Two? SB Nation ran their mock draft and decided that the answer is Arizona defensive end/outside linebacker Brooks Reed:

42. Houston Texans: Brooks Reed, DE, Arizona. Reed strikes me as more than slightly overrated, but in Wade Phillips' one-gap system, he'd make for a highly intriguing rush linebacker.

Personally I'm more comfortable with the team addressing the secondary in this round following the Watt pick. Miami cornerback Brandon Harris and UCLA safety Rahim Moore are likely the top two players on the list. Not that Reed would necessarily be a bad pick, I just don't think he's a home run pass rusher in the NFL. 

The Texans will also have the 73rd overall pick in the third round today.
