Lamarr Houston is a very quick, 1 gap penetrating DE. He will be at his best playing for a team like the Colts or Falcons who require quickness from their DT's. They will be able to penetrate and make some stops in the backfield. However, he will struggle against the run simply because he is still undersized. He has worked hard in the weight room to get to over 300 but was still playing closer to 290 during the season. He also struggled against some of the strong guards and tackles at the senior bowl and couldn't generate much of a pass rush against them. He got stood up and at times was knocked to the ground. He offers a lot of versatility and can play the five technique in the 3-4. This will cause his stock to rise a bit and he might be drafted in the 2nd round because of that.

1-poor, 2-weak, 3-above average, 4-very good, 5-elite

MOTOR: 4.5
