With the 15th Pick in the 2009 Stampede Blue Community Mock Draft, Houston selects...


Tyson Jackson, DE, LSU

15. Houston Texans

Drafter: stuart0908

Reasons for drafting: "The Texans had a few glaring needs going into this draft. There is a question mark at linebacker with DeMeco Ryans not happy with his contract and no one to pair with Zac Diles (who is returning from injury). Also a pressing need is secondary help, but with no one at this point on the board left worthy of a top 15 pick, Tyson Jackson helps fill another need at DE opposite Super Mario. This will take the pressure off of him, and release the double teams, allowing him to continue to be a dominant DE. Jackson also has great versatility to rotate through the D Line and play next to Okoye to further his development and switch back and forth with Antonio Smith who is also a versatile player from DE or DT. With this pick, the Texans could have one of the most formidable D Lines in the NFL."
