A pair of former CAA Football standouts are taking part in this week’s NFL Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Below are highlights from their individual breakdowns, written by Lance Zierlein of


DeAndre Houston-Carson, William & Mary S

“Team captain. Combines a nose for the ball and a hot motor to fill up stat sheet. Slippery on his way to the ball with ability to weave through traffic and slip blocks. Plays with plus balance and is able to withstand contact from blocker and stay in the play. High­-end, charged up tackler with some explosion behind his pads a high­-end tackle production. Former cornerback with a background in man coverage. Has twitch and acceleration to match slot receivers out of their breaks. Plays with outstanding awareness of man and ball in zone coverage. Snared seven interceptions over last two years. Special teams gunner and overall ace with multiple coverage tackles. Gets out of his stance in a flash and has unique talent for blocking kicks including four punts in nine games in 2014.”


Victor Ochi, Stony Brook DL/LB

“Plays standing up or with a hand down. Sets a nasty edge with a thunderous punch that jars lower end competition. Constricts running lanes and looks to dive down the line of scrimmage to make tackles. Active, heavy tackler. Loves the game and plays with toughness. Able to decimate FCS tackles with punch, snatch and tug move that sends them to the ground. Will run right through soft-­edge tackles on the way to hit the quarterback. Has long arms and gets adequate extension at point of attack. Holds Stony Brook records in tackles for loss and sacks.”
