The Houston Texans, represented by Pro Football Hall of Famer Orangeman, select....
AQIB TALIB, CB - KANSAS
G.M. - Orangeman -- Talib has all the tools you look for in a corner. He can match up with the taller physically gifted NFL receivers. He has the makings of a shut down corner. Talib has good recovery speed if he makes a mistake and closes quickly on the ball. He can also wins jump ball situations. Talib is versatile enough to play safety.
Ray Rhodes will coach Talib up like Alex Gibbs coaches up the O-line. Talib needs to improve his mechanics and footwork as well as his play reading skills. He is a boom or bust player who will thrive under Rhodes tutelage.
