With a pair of picks in the third round, the Kansas City Chiefs were in a position they could take a flyer on a player that some NFL scouts considered to be a medium risk.
At the NFL combine, it was reported that Justin Houston failed a drug test. And when you consider that issue as well as his on again off again energy during games, it's easy to see why this first round talent slipped to round three.
That won't be an issue in Kansas City under the guidance of Chiefs Defensive Coordinator Romeo Crennel. He'll play hard every snap and he comes to the Chiefs with something to prove.
Still he's tremendous insurance for the Chiefs should the team fail to sign Tamba Hali to a long term contract. If they can manage to keep last year top sack master in the AFC and combine him with the talents of Houston, Kansas City will have to capable edge rushers who can create havoc on opposing NFL quarterbacks.
