3. DeAndre Houston-Carson
When the Chicago Bears did not give Houston-Carson a tender, it showed what kind of interest they had in keeping him around. However, they played their cards right and with a market that showed him no interest, he wandered back to Chicago.
So, with minimal demand on Houston-Carson and HaHa Clinton-Dix signed for just one season, there was a chance that the team could look safety in the draft. Of course, it is likely more of a testament to the way the board broke than their faith in Houston-Carson. Still, it would be hard to justify him not making the 53-man roster after this weekend.
He brings enough special teams value that the team can trust him and when looking at the room as a whole, it is clear he is going to be the best option. Houston-Carson was clearly a player who had certain interests watching the draft. He certainly had to be happy seeing all of the offensive names and cornerbacks pop up, ensuring his status at safety.
This definitely can be looked at as a winning weekend for Houston-Carson.
