Hue Jackson called Matt Shaugnessy last year’s Most Improved Player. It appears Lamarr Houston is on track for that distinction in 2011 and the season hasn’t even kicked of yet, let alone the lockout lifted.
The second-year defensive lineman is thought to become one of the best at his position according to Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc.
Further, ESPN AFC West blogger Bill Williamson (no relation. . . I don’t think) pegged Houston as one of the biggest future stars in the division.
The latter Williamson categorizes Houston as a versatile player who can play in virtually every defensive situation.
That’s a big compliment.
Houston finished his rookie season with five sacks, 39 tackles and forced fumble. He started all but one game as a rookie.
