Texans Select CB Kevin Johnson With No.16 Pick
The Houston Texans keep adding depth to their defense by drafting CB Kevin Johnson. Johnson accels in man coverage, and will be facing the likes of Colts T.Y Hilton, and Jaguars Marquis Lee.
Johnson was second-team All-ACC in 2014, after starting all 12 games and allowing just 24 completions all season long. He finished with 44 tackles, including 3.5 for loss. In 2013, was second in the conference with 15 passes defensed and finished with three interceptions. Selected honorable mention All-ACC in 2012, finishing second in ACC with 18 passes defensed.
Johnson was also a running back and cornerback for River Hill High (Md.). Was a member of the 2007 and 2008 2A state title teams and was selected first-team All-State his senior season.
The 2015 NFL Draft this year was held in Chicago, Illinois. It's the first time that the event was not at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. The new environment brought the majority of the first round draft picks, but not the top two, Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston.
