Russ Lande of the National Football Post has his latest mock draft up. His current selection for your Houston Texans?

27. Houston Texans: Kevin Minter, ILB, LSU, Junior: When inside linebacker Brian Cushing was lost for the season with a knee injury, the Texans defense struggled to play at the high level it had been. So even though Cushing is expected to be 100% for the 2013 season, the Texans grab Minter to start next to him and hopefully provide the playmaking ability to allow their defense to continue playing at a high level if Cushing gets hurt again.

I can think of at least one Texans fan who will not applaud this selection and accompanying analysis.
