Notes:
Started 27 games for Arkansas...recorded 86 tackles and grabbed three interceptions...Named an All-American honorable mention, while picking up All-SEC Second-Team honors as a junior, finishing 2006 with a career-high 45 tackles, with three INTs and two forced fumbles...Has nice size with long arms...Sensational athlete with exceptional speed...Plays very physical and is a solid shut down corner...Can handle almost any receiver in man coverage...Tremendous leaping abilities...Very strong and uses his hands well...Has the ability to break up a lot of passes...Not the best tackler...Does not support the run very well...Tends to make mental mistakes...Still very raw and needs to work on his technique...After shutting down WR standouts in Dwayne Jarrett and Robert Meachem last season, Houston certainly has the potential to be a top tier DB at the next level...Ran a 4.32 in the 40-yard dash at the combine, making him a viable first-round option.
