MOST excited. In a draft where you found a potential successor to Andre Johnson (the greatest player in Texans franchise history) as well as the potential successor to Ed Reed (perhaps the only 1st ballot HoF this team has ever had) it's a NT that has Smitty MOST excited.


Is this whole forum a p&&&ing contest over who has the most Texans knowledge?

Get over yourself


Forgive me for trying to bring something to the conversation. Of those selected rounds 4-7.

Smith named defensive tackle Chris Jones, a sixth-round pick from Bowling Green who was the MAC Defensive Player of the Year in 2012.

I really liked him, Smith said. I think when he comes in the building, just the way that he approaches the game and the kind of make-up that he has, I think its going to be very hard to keep him off the field because he just plays relentlessly, and very productive.

And although I love the Hopkins pick, I really only see him as the #1 if we get ourselves into a pinch. I'm not degrading his abilities but to a degree his measurables don't warrant #1 status. College, yes. In the pros, a coin flip. But of course he should contribute to this team long after Andres career has ended.

Potential successor to Andre Johnson and Ed Reed? Let the kids play a first down, dang.

Point is we always here these things from GMs, UDFAs lighting it up in TC making a name for themselves. Or a late pick a GM had pegged as a 3rd rounder. Really nothing more here than motivational talk.

Thank you for providing something meaningful to the conversation.


And you are who?

Fred Savage.

As for Jones, from the one game I saw on youtube against Miami OH he seems to have the Rick smith stamp. Only issues is size. Motor, intensity, pass rush ability and ability to occupy multiple blockers. But it was a lower level of competition and a YouTube clip.

My reason for posting was simply in response to viewing him as "camp fodder" which I think is rash. And the OP retracted his thought. So really there is no issue

Internet forums generally are "p&&&ing contests" to see who has the most knowledge about the topic they're built on. Also, I'm pretty sure the lack of question mark at the end of ET's comment means he's on your side.

Not that it's my place to say it, but let's try not to denigrate fellow posters in here. uk, that should go for you as well. It's not that hard to debate without making snide comments about others.

I was agreeing with you, homeslice. Please, don't hit me. Sad

...that's why I used the word "potential", darling.

You do know what that word means, correct? They were drafted with that intent, to replace a 33 year old WR and a 35 year old FS. Whether or not they will is something I never attempted to address - hence the use of the word "potential". Them playing a "first down" is irrelevant to what their overall goal is.

Glad to clear that up. Let me know if you have any more questions. Very Happy

Plus... we don't generally have pi$$ing contests on these boards. We find them too crude and juvenile. Once in a while a couple of guys will pull down their pants and break out the measuring tape...but that is about it.

They don't make measuring tapes big enough.

Putting the tape measures away and trying to get back on topic, from watching the little bit of tape on Chris Jones, he seems to have some relative quickness for his size but plays to upright and needs to get his pads lower. I'm hoping that our strength and conditioning program can put some weight on this guy and make him a little quicker. Hopefully the coaching staff can work on the technique issues. I really hope this guy can be what we hope he can be cause we really need some of our late round talent to step up.
