The Texans added another pass rusher in the fourth round, taking Nebraska defensive end Jared Crick. The 6-foot-6, 285-pound Crick made 22 tackles, including three for loss, in an injury-shortened 2011 season. He finished in Nebraska's top in career sacks (20), even after tearing a chest muscle in the sixth game of his final year.The injury dropped Crick, who began the season as a possible late first-round pick, down the boards.
