2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Lamarr Houston, DT, Texas

Lamarr Houston came to Texas expecting to be the team's next great defensive end. He did earn 11 starts as a freshman and a sophomore at the end position, and even earned honorable mention All-Big 12 accolades during the 2007 season. Then in 2008 Houston switched to the defensive tackle spot. His season was slowed by injuries, but Houston still managed to make eight starts and do his part clogging the middle of the line. Six games into the 2009 season and Houston is turning into a dominating defensive tackle. He continues to add more weight and is listed at 6-2 and 300 pounds, but the weight seems to keep going up and that is a good thing if he wants to play defensive tackle in the NFL. It is his production on the field that is getting the attention of NFL scouts. Through six games, Houston has 21 tackles, six tackles-for-loss and 17 quarterback hurries. Houston's experience at defensive end and defensive tackle should make him a more valuable player in the draft. He can move around in any 4-3 defense and provide quality depth anywhere on the line. Houston will have to make some noise between now and the draft to be a first or second round selection, but he should not fall far past that point. 2/15 Update: Houston finished off his collegiate career by leading the Longhorns in tackles during the BCS National Championship game. He even tallied two tackles-for-loss and a sack. During workouts after the season he has proven to be a solid run stuffer who has the speed, strength and agility to chase down ball carriers. Right now he is likely a third round selection and all the talent emerging from the defensive line will not help his stock, but he could separate himself from some of the other defensive tackles with more quality workouts.
