Texans finally take a defensive player in West Virginia's K.J. Dillon

Until now the Texans had gone heavy on offense. With the 159th pick in the draft, the Texans took their first defensive player in West Virginia safety K.J. Dillon. They'll also select 166th overall, which will be their second fifth-round pick.

My take: Safety is a position where the Texans wanted an upgrade, but as they had so many more pressing needs, they didn't get there. Dillon has a little bit of versatility and could contribute in either safety spot in a pinch, though his greatest impact should come on special teams. Currently the Texans' starters are Andre Hal and Quintin Demps. Worth noting, too: Dillon stepped in for Karl Joseph, a safety who went 14th overall and in whom the Texans had interest had he fallen into their range.

What about the defensive line?: The Texans' defensive line will look a little bit different next season than it did last season because starting defensive end Jared Crick departed in free agency. Some thought they might take a defensive end early in the draft to fill that spot. I could see Devon Still, who signed a futures deal in January and officially became a Texan in March, being part of the mix at defensive end.
