Texans Scouting Report - Kevin Bentley
I think Bentley's a good fit as a reserve outside linebacker in a 4-3 defense. He's better against the pass than the run - he has good agility and will do his best to fit the system he's in. He was advertised as being able to play all three positions, but I don't think he'd project as a middle linebacker at all. I never saw that level of run-stopping ability.
I'm not sure how the Texans are planning to use him, but I have no doubt that he'll do his best to fit in around the excellent DeMeco Ryans. Bentley is a heady, hardworking player who doesn't gripe publicly about his special teams and backup role.
The Texans seemed to make it a point to address their special teams depth as well as their linebacker position with the acquisitions of not only Kevin Bentley, but also Chaun Thompson. Bentley represents yet another low-risk, potentially high reward type of signing, as the $1 million that the team spent will hardly wreck the team's cap if he doesn't work out.
