Texans Look to the SEC for Draft Picks
Rashad Johnson - Alabama, FS, (Redshirt Sr.) 6'0", 190 lbs., 4.40 40-yard dash. 2008 stats- 30 tackles, 8 pass breakups. The 2007 first team all-SEC performer's draft stock is rising as he has been very solid in 2008. Johnson has great athleticism and is a playmaker with sideline to sideline ability. Currently an early second-day pick.
Justin Woodall - Alabama, SS, (Junior) 6'2", 220 lbs. 4.49 40-yard dash. 2008 stats- 19 tackles, 1 sack, 3 interceptions, 5 pass breakups, 2 forced fumbles. Great size to be an NFL strong safety and he may be good enough to play as a rookie. Woodall makes big plays and big hits. Currently an early second-day pick but rising.
Javier Arenas - Alabama, CB, (Junior) 5'9", 198 lbs. 4.38 40-yard dash. 2008 stats- 25 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 1 INT, 3 pass breakups. One of the best kickoff and punt return men in college, Arenas is also a very solid corner. Has speed to burn but isn't overly physical. Currently a late first-day pick.
Jamarca Sanford - Ole Miss, SS, (Redshirt Sr.) 5'10", 200 lbs. 4.46 40-yard dash. 2008 stats- 56 tackles, 2 forced fumbles. Physical player for his size, active tackler, may need to switch to free safety on the next level. Currently a late-second day pick.
Kendrick Lewis - Ole Miss, FS (Junior) 5'11", 192 lbs. 4.56 40-yard dash. 2008 stats- 45 tackles, 1 interception, 3 pass breakups, 1 fumble recovery. Former wide receiver would better be served to stay in school next season rather than enter the draft. He needs to get bigger and get a little faster, but has good instincts.
