2015 NFL Draft – 16th Overall Pick – Texans Draft Kevin Johnson

The Texans zigged when we thought they’d zag and draft cornerback Kevin Johnson from Wake Forest.

Johnson is small at well under 200-pounds but was a three-year starter with impeccable coverage skills. He can play in any scheme and is mature enough to start right away. He won’t be an asset in IDP leagues but should improve an already good, young Texans defense. If he can excel in coverage, it’s more time for J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney to rack up the sacks.

clowneyDynasty Impact: With the first overall pick, the Texans select Jadeveon Clowney and create a terrifying duo of pass rushers. There was a little mystery as to who Houston would pick but it ended up being the safest pick all along.

Whether as an end or a rush linebacker, Clowney won’t draw nearly as much attention thanks to J.J. Watt lining up on the other end. For IDP-ers, if he does end up at end, Clowney is the most celebrated end to come out since Julius Peppers. From sheer talent, Clowney should be good for double-digit sacks on a regular basis. He should be taken pretty high in rookie dynasty IDP drafts.

Week 3 Dynasty Recap – Ravens beat Texans 30-9

  • Houston receiver DeAndre Hopkins led the team with six receptions for 60 yards. He’s going to be a stud.
  • Baltimore rookie safety Matt Elam isn’t quite there yet with his tackle numbers after just five today.
  • J.J. Watt did J.J Watt things and had nine tackles to go along with a sack and
