“Justin has a lot of potential,” Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said. “He’s still learning this game. As I look back to when he became a starter to the end of the year, I think his game improved. As he got used to seeing different blocking schemes, I think he got better and he’ll continue to get better. This year, he’ll have an offseason, which will be good for him. I expect to see a good improvement in him in 2012.”
The Chiefs also drafted Houston in the third round last year. He likely would have been drafted in the first round but allegedly tested positive for marijuana at the NFL combine.
“He’s 270 pounds, and he can run,” inside linebacker Derrick Johnson said. “Tamba even looks at him and he wishes he was that big and could run like that.”
