As has been the case for the last several weeks, Dan Kadar continues to champion the idea of the Houston Texans drafting UCLA linebacker Eric Kendricks with the sixteenth overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft. The latest edition of Kadar's weekly mocking provides as follows:
16. Houston Texans: Eric Kendricks (ILB--UCLA)
This is a pick I continue to be stuck on. Kendricks just offers Houston something it doesn't have at linebacker. He’s a player who is really good in coverage, has good instincts and can cover a lot of ground in the run game. All of those things far outweigh any physical questions someone may have about him.
When faced with the choice of Kendricks versus Bud Dupree, the majority of the BRB "braintrust" opted for Dupree. It should be noted that some of said collective (most vocally Rivers McCown, with Diehard Chris and Dunsmore joining the McCown breakaway republic) preferred Kendricks to Dupree. If the Texans are faced with an identical choice on the evening of April 30th, who would you prefer they select? Cast your vote in the poll below and then explain yourself in the Comments.
