The Houston Texans headed into the NFL Draft looking to bolster their defensive line. And they pulled that off with the selection of TCU's interior lineman Ross Blacklock in the second round.

A huge body on the line to play alongside J.J. Watt should make Houston's defensive front all that more intimidating, as long as Blacklock pans out. Early signs are great, though, at least according to the Texans' defensive coordinator.

Those are really two of the biggest things you want out of a young player, especially one that was not an elite top-10 prospect. Having a good attitude, working hard, and having the ability to learn is the perfect recipe to be able to mold a young player into whatever your team needs him to be.

It sounds like Houston got a good one.
