Ourlads' Profile:

2011 Guide: What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about JUSTIN HOUSTON: Georgia, 6027 270 4.68. Junior entry. Two-year starter who has experience as a 3-4 rush end and a 4-3 end. Stood up in 2010 and came off the edge. Did not always play to his outstanding athletic ability. Gets tied up on offensive tackles. Inconsistent use of hands to separate. Strong upper body. Can set the edge if he plays with leverage and technique. Turns the corner and flattens out down the line. Lateral quickness and change of direction are unusually good for a big man. Effort on plays away is inconsistent. Doesn’t always fly to the football. Quick first step. Question instincts. If he sees it he can make a play. Inconsistent to control an opponent with his hands. If you grade his flashes and look at his 2010 production, he looks like a future Pro Bowler. If you look at the total picture, Houston must elevate his total game. Will contribute on special teams coverage. Played on the punt team for the Bulldogs. Has a red flag that needs to be cleaned up to the satisfaction of ball clubs. 2010 stats: 67 tackles, 18 1/2 TFL, 10 sacks, 2 PBU, 1 INT. Edge speed:left 2.05, right 2.11. OSR:3/19. First/second round. (A-34 1/2, H-10 7/8, BP-30, SS-4.37).
