Whenever the NFL goes back to work, it's going to be interesting seeing the Texans working in Mario Williams at outside linebacker. With the switch to the 3-4 defense, Wade Phillips thinks that puts Williams in the best position to rush the quarterback, which is what he does best.

That move is one of the reasons the Texans drafted defensive end J.J. Watts in the first round. At nearly 6-foot-7 and 290 pounds, Williams will be the biggest linebacker in the league.

Mario's reportedly excited about the move. He's got some technique issues to work on, but the guys an athlete.
