D.J. Swearinger, SS, South Carolina Gamecocks (5-10, 208 pounds)
After losing Glover Quin this offseason, the Texans had a hole at safety that needed to be addressed. So the team makes a smart move by drafting safety DJ Swearinger, who also started at cornerback during his collegiate career. A very physical hitter, Swearinger makes a lot of tackles behind the line of scrimmage. His athleticism allows him to match-up with tight ends easily in man coverage and gives him sideline to sideline range in deep coverage. The one area of concern is that he does not deal well with blockers, but he has all the physical tools to be a quality starter for the Texans.
