02:34 AM ET 11.30 | For all the bad news that is coming out of Kansas City this season, there are some positive things happening. Mainly, second-year OLB Justin Houston is budding into a star. The Chiefs selected Houston in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Houston was seen by many as a potential first-round selection; however, a failed drug test at the scouting combine is often blamed for his slide into the third round. The Chiefs snagged Houston up and he is making good on their investment. Houston has not had any off-field troubles since coming to KC but more importantly, his on-field performance has been terrific. Houston snagged the starting role out of the gate as a rookie, but the NFL lockout hurt rookies the most and Houston's lack of experience showed. He quickly lost his starting role and was relegated to sub-package defense.
