RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Crick, a fourth-round selection in the 2012 draft, emerged as a starting defensive end for Houston in 2014. He was mostly on the field for running situations, but contributed 3.5 sacks and we anticipate a larger role for him in 2015. With J.J. Watt and Vince Wilfork occupying attention on the front line, Crick might be in line for increased sack totals.
Crick has made the transition from college inside lineman to professional defensive end. And now he'll compete for the starting end position opposite J.J. Watt, though we anticipate changing personnel and schemes. That means Crick may not play every down if he wins the job, unless he forces his way into the team's plans as a three-down player.
Crick appeared in 15 games and played 20 percent of Houston's total defensive snaps. A fourth-round pick in 2012 out of Nebraska, Crick received a lesson in push-rushing, playing behind J.J. Watt and Antonio Smith. He's worked this offseason on developing pass-rushing moves that work for him. He'll fill a similar role in 2013.
The Texans are looking for Crick to play inside at tackle, though he has experience all over the defensive line.
