NFL Draft 2009 Round 1 #15- Houston Texans- LB Brian Cushing

Second former Trojan taken in the first 15 picks.

ESPN writes- Cushing’s greatest strength is his ability to defend the run. He locates the ball quickly, is strong enough to set the edge and he is a big hitter who wraps up on contact. There’s also a lot to like about his range and motor. He isn’t as strong in coverage or as a pass-rusher, but he can masque his lack of ideal hip flexibility with positioning and his ability to jam tight ends at the line.
