Interesting look at some of the WR options for the Texans.


Unrelated side note: Did anyone hear 610's Nick Wright just BLAST Lance Z a few days ago? Called him out over watching "tape" of these prospects.

"Bro, youtube doesn't count as tape..."


He isn't a scout so doesn't have access to actual game film, but knows what to look for in draft prospects.


I'm indifferent to it all...Nick Wright was just looking to ruffle some feathers. Wink


Lance Z is a giant toolbag. Thinks he's the greatest thing on radio because his dad's a coach. If you call him out, he turns into a hilariously petty wannabe bully.


Eh, Wright can be the same way; Even though I'm his "favorite Tom from Sugar Land," he and I get into it once in a while. Think he doesn't like me. Very Happy

Lance Z tweeted that an "anonymous player in the Texans locker room said that he doesn't have confidence in Schaub." I tweeted back that unless he was willing to say who it was, it wasn't a story, that Lance wasn't a reporter protecting his source and that a guy talking crap in the lockerroom wasn't the sort of thing that anonymous source laws were intended to protect. (I was nicer than that in my initial tweet).

He then spent the next two hours berating me over twitter, siccing his followers on me, calling me names like a child, and deliberately twisting my tweets. He came across as unbelievably petty... and the fact that he was so animalistic confirmed to me that he either agreed with me or that he was lying and didn't like being called out.

Didn't expect to see him run that--I thought he'd be a 4.55 guy. He didn't play that fast this year...

Earl Wolff helped his stock as well by being the second fastest safety. I really like Wolff, I think he'll be a solid SS in the NFL for a long time.

Report from tfy draft insider

Quote:
Alabama Birmingham
The Pittsburgh Steelers, Houston Texans and Miami Dolphins were in Birmingham to take in UAB pro-day and offensive lineman Chris Hubbard was the star of the show.
Measuring 6034/290lbs, the athletic blocker ran the forty in the upper 4.8’s and posted 21 reps on the bench. Those on hand told us Hubbard looked terrific in drills. He easily moved about the field and looked smooth and natural in all the exercises. Many in the scouting community feel Hubbard was a combine snub and the college tackle will get considerations in the late rounds by a zone blocking offense looking for a guard.
Inside linebacker Marvin Burdette ran faster than expected despite pulling a quad during his first forty. Burdette, who played in both the Raycom and Casino Del Sol All Star games, measured 5095/232 then posted a forty time of 4.72s before injuring his leg. He gutted out the drills as best he could before ending his day. Both the Steelers and Texans showed a lot of interest in Burdette, who projects as an inside backer/special teams player.
The other player the teams got to see was linebacker Larry Lumpkin.
Lumpkin, who made himself available for last July’s supplemental draft, was with the Indianapolis Colts this summer before reaching an injury settlement. Today the athletic defender showed he’s ready to play again.
Lumpkin measured 6000/251lbs, timed 4.65s in the forty and completed 30-reps on the bench.

As much as old school print guys like McClain drive me nuts because they go out of their way to protect the team over informing the readers, Junior High crap like "somebody doesn't like you, but I can't tell you who" is a pointless sorry exercise that abuses the necessary protections real journalists are afforded against revealing their sources. Just for grins, let's say the player was someone like Jacoby Jones who regularly screwed over Schaub with his crappy routes, tipped passes, and unreliable hands wouldn't that be critical to the story, especially since he "forgave" the Texans for cutting him after flopping in 2011 after Kubiak went to bat to get him resigned and was rewarded with his pathetic play when AJ went down and his idiotic playoff fumble. Alternatively, let's say it was some lame duck 63rd man like Stanford Routt or Phllip Supernaw, do we really care about his opinion? Alternatively, if it's Andre Johnson, Arian Foster, or Owen Daniels, doesn't he have a duty to risk his relationship with the source to reveal a critical issue like core offensive components losing confidence in their leader? Finally, what if the source was TJ Yates, or someone with clearly something to gain by creating QB controversy? Again, not even qualifying which side of the football we are talking about makes it a non story like "somebody told me somebody on the Texans is cheating on his wife."

I suspect Z is simply filling pre-draft, pre March Madness dead air with contrived low end controversy as there is not a QB in the NFL who enjoys 100% support from his locker room (I can guarantee that there was some low rent defensive player playing on a 1 year deal on the Pats who probably questioned all the money Brady got after Cassell led them to an 11 win season and told some radio guy off the record that they should just spend $16 million on the secondary instead). A player on the Texans undermining his QB and not manning up to the comment says far more about that player than it does about Schaub.

As for Z, I don't know the guy, but if my dad was a Doctor, does that qualify me to operate on a patient because I grew up around medicine? I'll stay away from a partisan political take here, but I don't think we'd trust Roger Clinton, Billy Carter, or Neil Bush's opinions on much more than how to properly shutgun a beer, so let's not assume knowledge translates by osmosis amongst siblings either. I sure wish the guy would stand on his own accomplishments and not his dad and brother. If you ever want to get a really bad deal on a car, buy one from the son of an auto dealer...

A couple of highlights from the past week.

Hopkins ran a 4.57 at the combine, but improved that number on Thursday with 40-yard dashes in the 4.4's and low 4.5's. As expected he shined during catching drills, receiving passes from former quarterback and Clemson assistant Joe Craddock. Hopkins did nothing to hurt his chances of being one of the first wide receivers off the board, possibly in the top-32 picks. “Big improvement from 4.57,” Hopkins stated after his workout. “I've been making big strides to improve.” - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com


Reed's lil bro Lucas Reed from New Mexico measured in at 6-6, 247 pounds and despite possessing very long arms (35 1/4"), topped the high set by Stanford's Zach Ertz this year at the combine with 25 repetitions of 225 pounds. His explosiveness extended to the vertical jump, as well, where he posted a 37" vertical jump. Reed was unofficially clocked between 4.65-4.72 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He had a 4.08-second time in the short shuttle and covered the three-cone in 6.97 seconds.

Reed performing well during workouts isn't a surprise. His older brother, former Arizona pass rusher Brooks Reed, also worked out exceptionally well, contributing to his earning a second round selection by the Houston Texans.

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/blog/rob-rang/21826169/2013-nfl-draft-combine-snub-reed-wows-at-new-mexico-pro-day


Arthur Brown/LB blew up his workout. He tipped the scales at 236lbs and posted 21 reps on the bench; a terrific number for someone who was dealing with a shoulder issue. His forty times ranged between 4.58-to-4.62. During drills Brown was sensational, showing a quick change of direction and losing no momentum altering his angle of attack. He was fast in every direction and really solid in ball drills.

Chris Harper/WR timed as fast as 4.38s on a number of watches, though we expect the “official” time to be slightly slower. Regardless, he was still very quick and caught the ball well during drills.

Lucas Reed will definitely be on my predict the pick roster. If there are two things Kubiak loves, it's family and tight ends. Wouldn't be surprised to see him try to convert to LB here.

Jessie Williams tore up Bama's pro day

03/13/13 - 2013 Alabama Pro Day: Underrated Williams rocks Alabama pro day...Bull-strong defensive tackle Jesse Williams set many pens to paper at Alabama's pro day Wednesday in Tuscaloosa. A star attraction at the combine -- he did 30 reps of 225 when many were projecting as many as 50 -- Williams stood out again in the presence of dozens of scouts Wednesday, when all 32 teams were represented.

Williams posted a 40-yard dash in the range of 4.84-4.92 seconds, and then he posted a 7.69 three-cone time even at 6-3, 326 pounds, displaying for NFL types how exactly he earned his nickname "Monster." "I feel more comfortable being here because I played here and we practiced out here every day," Williams said. "It is always good to come back here and show everyone what I got." - Jeff Reynolds, The Sports Xchange


Also Rice had it's pro day yesterday, here's Sam Muguffie's stats

5'11" 201 lbs
4.36 Hand 4.37 Electronic 40
11'2" Broad Jump
39.5" Vertical
26 reps

From a triangle perspective, that ain't bad at all. Really good, actually. His college career was less than inspiring, but I think that had more to do with his lack of a true position, and the transfer from Michigan to Rice. Had he posted those numbers as a Michigan Wolverine, I'd really start to think he'd be a 3rd/4th round prospect.

I can see a team pick him up that early, based on numbers alone...but if he's there in the 5th or 6th, I can all but state he'll be on the Texans.

Completely personal, but I HATE that kid. Extreme athlete but I grew up with him, played ball at fair with him. Horrible human being. Wish nothing good for him.

On the side excellent numbers on paper but never made anything out of his opportunities at Michigan or rice. And wouldn't have a defined position in the nfl. Let belichiek squeeze out his talent. I hope to god he doesn't come here

Forget McDuffie! I remember people said he was a sure 1st round draft pick because he huddled over a dude in HS and that he was going to explode in Rich Rod's offense at Michigan. Laughing

He going to be a slot WR at the NFL level and I'm not even sure if he going to be a successful one. He is fast, thats it.

Yipes. Seems like you have personal experiences with him. Laughing

I fully agree, but I look at the Kubiak connection with this one - with his youngest son on Rice, Kubiak will take a long and hard look at all Rice players. Kubs did the same thing with Colorado State University when his two oldest sons played there.

BTW - Welcome to the site! Very Happy

I appreciate your support in this matter. Punt returner And that's that. The huddle was pretty ridiculous but he wasn't even the best running back coming out around that time. Fozzy Whitaker was viewed as the better all around talent and 1 year in and no splash is Expected

.
Gracias, glad to be on here. Used this site for about 6 years to rule the football realm of my circle of friends. Texan since the days of johnathan wells and Stacey Mack to sum it up. Lol will not tolerate the new guy in the office demeanor. I know what I'm talking about Smile.

And trust me ive thought about that since I got word kubs jr was heading to rice. Worse Things could happen in this draft but I don't see the importance of focusing on too many projects. We need to make impact choices.



I'm high on

Quinton Patton, if he can show more separation than at the senior bowl
Matt Elam
AJ Klein
Gerald Hodges
Sio Moore
David Amerson
Eric Reid, if he want to go the Ed reed route
DeAndre Hopkins
Cornelius Washington, if any project. Use That compensatory

Most certainly want no partof Kevin Minter or Manti Te'o in the first
