Crick hoping to show how he can help Texans

As far as Jared Crick is concerned, what happened during his senior year at Nebraska has little to do with what he can accomplish from this point forward. Crick missed eight games in his final season for the Cornhuskers due to a pectoral tear, probably costing him a chance to get selected in the top two or three rounds of the draft. "Who knows?" said Crick when asked about...

NFL Bound: Crick goes No. 126 to Texans

TEXANS PROFILE: JARED CRICK   With the 126th pick of the 2012 NFL Draft the Houston Texans select Jared Crick, DE from the University of Nebraska.    The Texans hit a homerun with this pick deep in the fourth round not only did they get exceptional value, but they got a second round talent deep in the draft. I believe Jared Crick could have been drafted much higher, but due...

NFL Draft Profile: Jared Chick

A 3-4 Defensive End out of Nebraska, Jared Crick is a potential dancing partner for the Indianapolis Colts in the upcoming draft. With the assumed transition to a 3-4 defense and the shopping around of Dwight Freeney the Colts are also badly in the need of a defensive end that can hold the edge. Jared Crick is a potential guy for the Colts to take a look at early in the draft...

NFL Draft Medical Report: Jared Crick, DT, Nebraska

Past drafts are littered with players like former Green Bay Packer defensive tackle Justin Harrell. A slightly undersized and injury prone defensive lineman, the Packers drafted him in the first round in the 2007 draft.
