2012 NFL Mock Draft: Texans Expected To Draft Defense In Round One

The Houston Texans are expected to take a defensive lineman with their first round pick. Over at CBS Sports they have a new 2012 NFL mock draft out by Dane Brugler and he has the Texans picking at Nol 27 and taking a nose tackle:

27. Houston Texans, Dontari Poe, DT, Memphis: Shaun Cody has been a pleasant surprise, anchoring the middle of the three-man front and helping Houston hold opponents to 96.8 rush yards per game. However, depth is always needed and Poe gives Houston a nose tackle with rare movement skills for his size (6-5, 350) to plug holes and occupy multiple blockers.

The Texans selecting Poe is pretty much what every 2012 mock draft has as their pick at this point in the process.
