I don't think his agent was paying much attention to our draft based on his comments.

i noticed that as well. he might want to get a new agent. i wonder if that's why he signed with us?

Perhaps he's just trying to get into Adibi's head.

good pickup. love this guy. some weird off-the-field issues though

Good pickup IMO. With Diles moving to the outside, Moffitt could earn a spot backing up DeMeco.

Wow, you would think his agent is Drew Rosenhaus with a dumbass statement like that.

I think his agent was trying to sell me a magazine subscription last week. I noticed a copy of NFL Agent for Dummies in his bag as he was stumbling from my front door.

Texans also signed Hawaii WR Ryan Grice-Mullins

I like these pickups, Moffit especially. He's an overachiever high motor type who would be a very good backup Mike.

Ryan Grice-Mullen (http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/scoutingreports/wr/ryangricemullen.html)Strengths:
Has soft, reliable hands...Elusive and runs well after the catch...An excellent route runner...More quick than fast...Good ball skills and will make the amazing catch..A decent blocker..Smart with nice awareness...Tough and fearless...Real productive.

Weaknesses:
Height and bulk are just average...Does not have great speed and will struggle to separate from pro corners...Not real explosive and lacks a burst...Isn't very strong and gets pushed around...A marginal leaper...Has to adjust to a pro style offense.

Notes:
With both June Jones and Colt Brennan leaving he opted to go pro after his junior season just like his teammate Davone Bess...Isn't nearly the pro prospect that his statistics might lead you to believe...In many ways was a product of the Warriors "Run and Shoot" offense....Profiles as a prototypical slot receiver at the next level.

Sounds like his positives out-weighs his negative.

The one that I want to know about is where Sybil goes.

Tommy Blake.

I have a real hard on for this guy. I really really really want him. I saw him play and he was a MONSTER. I kept screaming for the Texans to take him since the 3rd round.

A good thing that I'm not a GM.

Maybe some insider information about moving Xavier Adibi to Safety like Michael Boulware did?

That would make sense as to why his agent thought there were no linebackers drafted.

Reminds me of David Anderson which isn't a bad thing for someone that is an undrafted free agent.

Booooo!!!

I do NOT want him moved! I want him to play linebacker. That's it.

Richard Smith has already stated that he will be an OLB. a poster on footballsfuture.com is reporting that we signed Jesse Nading, DE, Colorado State. Isn't that were Kubiak's son goes to schoo?l

Xavier Adibi will not move to safety. No.

On topic of the thread, Moffit will probably try out SLB. He is a tackling machine, and he is a smart LB, but the guy is slow as shit so he may end up as a backup MLB. Kastofna can back me up on this because we both live in Florida and got to see USF play. The guy can play, no doubt, it's his speed that's the question.

Kas, explain the off the field issues.

i'm still stuck on the richard smith mystery scheme thing... so forgive me. he seemed unwilling to call him either a Sam or Will. He kept saying he'll play the left or the right... makes me wonder if the scheme that doesnt have Free and STrong safetys doesnt have Sam and Mike's either...

And the guy wonders why he didn't get drafted? Geesh get a new agent. Hopefully he works out for us though.

HaHaHa - I actually enjoyed that. The best part was that I kept reading the text that wrote and it matched up fine to what you had. Took me a while to see the pic.

Exactly!

I hadn't know his scheme was right/left like that until he said that during the press conference.

Sam is Strong side....Will is Weak side....with 11 players there is generally always a Strong, Middle and Weak side of the ball/hash marks.

Yes BUT... we play a right/left arrangement with our CB's, Safeties and from what Smith said during the press conference, with our LB's.

So our linebackers always line up on a given side and then change responsibilities depending on whether they're lined up on the strong or weak side. So calling Greenwood the Will linebacker is incorrect because he's just an outside linebacker who lines up on the left side of the defense and takes on Will or Sam responsibilities based on the formation. He doesn't switch to the weakside depending on the offensive lineup. So he's not the Will or the Sam. With Adibi, same thing. He's an outside linebacker.

This is similar to what has been said about the corners and safeties.

I hadn't really noticed it before with the linebackers. The only ones who swap sides appear to be the linemen and even then, it's not to always get Mario on the strong or weak side.

Maybe this is why he didn't get drafted?

The guy was always making plays whenever I watched South Florida. Tried to focus on Selvie and Jenkins, but I heard Moffitt's name a lot and saw him all over the field. I can see him being a nice young back up, but doubtful if he's much more on our team- maybe a special teamer too.

I wonder if he's taking over the backup Mike job now that Diles is moved over to Sam?

Wow. With that, I'm honestly surprised that we picked him up, even as a UDFA.

Watched him play several games and my impression is that he will be a very good special teams player and quality backup.
