consensus is expect the Texans to select another RB in the 09 draft. so which prospects are your favorite fits for Gibbs ZBS? I'm reconstructing who I feel not only fit but offer the most upside to compliment Steve Slaton going forward, within the division & everyone available in the latter rounds. maybe a breakdown round by round would be usefull, feel free to be creative & lets see if anyone here can make the right call :phone:

The guys I like the best for Gibbs' system despite projected draft positioning (in no particular order):

Knowshown Moreno, Glen Coffee, James Davis, Shonn Green, Jeremiah Johnson, Andre Brown, Shun White

Other people would probably be better at determining where they should go in the draft.

excellent names some higher picks some later ones. so which one is most likely to be in the Texans future backfield? for a change I'll take some ownership & try to keep track......

This is one of those drafts (like last year) where we just really need another RB, so it's hard to project which round we will use for the RB position. We could go 1st round RB or 5th round RB.

I feel like next year, with a new defensive staff and so many holes on defense, we will address defense for most of the picks in the draft and probably in the first two rounds.

Out of the guys I listed Glen Coffee, James Davis, Andre Brown, Shun White could all be there in the third I suppose. I'd be surprised if Jeremiah Johnson was available at our pick in the third.

trust me I understand but given a choice (3rd/4th) Jeremiah would be your ideal selection if available?

James Davis I think is a good fit - and I've read he probably won't go until the 4th at the earliest.

from posts here mostly & on local sports talk even McClain thinks the Texans have to give Slaton some more help carrying the workload.

Personally - I think the 3rd is too early to take our RB. We just have too many defensive holes. We're looking for a guy who will probably get a MAX of 10-12 carries.

The more I think about it, the more I think we're going to end up addressing it in free agency.

10 carries for 16 games is 160 carries on the season. That's alot of carries.

No doubt. But I see no reason we can't get that guy in FA or later in the draft. I won't be pissed if they take an RB in the 3rd - I just think there will be better defensive value at that point (depending, of course, on what we get with our first two picks).

I'd love James Davis in the 4th. If they decide he's worth it in the 3rd, fine.

I have to admit that I have only seen him play once and then only for a little over a quarter, but in their bowl game the RB Scott for LSU looked pretty good. Big guy that seems to have some speed. My guess is he would be a late round pick as I'm not seeing any buzz on him. Seemed to bang it in there pretty good for the amount of time I watched. Anyone know any thing about the the kid?

I would take Arian Foster out of Tenn. in the 4th round...big size 6'1" 0ver 217lbs runs a 4.49 40 and drafting him in the 4th round for 10 to 15 carries a game wont break the bank...of course this is all contingent on him falling this far (projected round 3)

01-02-2009, 11:41 PM
If he comes out Keiland Williams would be an ideal pick in the 4th or 5th rd. He is currently backing up Scott @ LSU. He has more natural ability than Scott IMO.

I also like Gartrel Johnson in the 5th or 6th rd.

Anyone like Donald Brown, Connecticut 5-10 210? noon kick-off on ESPN 2 "The International Bowl" very productive #1 could easily split carries providing strong insurance @ RB position. power running style with good cut-back vision to find holes. will be interesting to see where the NFL's College Advisory Committee projects him drafted? my guess is mid 2nd but if he slips to the Texans 3rd rd. pick he could be in the mix. keys to watch will be how quick he hits the hole, downhill runner not expecting long speed, good footwork in short space, nose for endzone.

Heard he was going back to school, otherwise I like him a lot.

I don't know about that sounds to me like he's coming out -

UConn coach Randy Edsall, in a press conference previewing the team's second-straight bowl game, said he recently submitted paperwork to the NFL's College Advisory Committee in order to gauge Brown's draft prospects. Edsall has also made phone calls to some NFL general managers and scouting directors. Before learning of Brown's seemingly firm decision, Edsall joked about the 5-foot-10, 210-pound back's intentions. "I've already told him I don't want him to go," Edsall said. But the coach thought, or more likely still thinks, that if Brown is projected to be selected early in the draft it would be difficult to return to school. "Depending on where he's slotted, it might be too good to pass up," Edsall said. Edsall said he plans on meeting with Brown and his parents in late January to update the family on what his NFL sources have told him. While he appreciates such information, Brown swears he has already made up his mind. "This is my decision," Brown said. "If I need advice, my parents can help. Coach Edsall is there, too. But when it comes down to it, it's my decision and my future." Brown is expected to graduate in May with a degree in exercise science. In addition to his studies, however, Brown says he has unfinished work to do on the football field. "I want to play in a BCS game, I want to play in the Orange Bowl," Brown said. Despite leading the nation by running for an average of 151.83 yards per game, Brown was not among the finalists for the Doak Walker Award. - Neill Ostrout, Connecticut Post

His 40 yd TD run was on a zone stretch and he displayed exactly what your post mentioned.

If Donald Brown decides to come out (I thought he had decided to stay in for one more year) he is my hands down second round pick.

I had liked the idea of Shonn Greene at the same spot until I saw his bowl game. He seems like Ron Dayne redux; not nearly as excited about him now.

But, Donald Brown is the perfect fit for our offense and him and Slaton splitting carries is the perfect 2-headed monster we need.

Today is the first time I have seen him, but like what I have seen so far in limited snaps. Since I have a gardening show to watch shortly and a hike to take after I would like to hear other's thoughts. My concern, based on what I have seen and UCONN's MO is his blocking ability. Not that he cannot, but that they have one of the least utliized passing attacks in the country.

OK, I'll go out (way out) on a limb here.

Jorvorskie Lane, RB, Texas A&M. round 7

If the rationale is that we need a between the tackle bruiser, especially in short-yardage red zone situations, and also to spell Slaton (and I am not saying I am bought into this last aspect of the argument), then Lane would certainly be a bull who could be had on the cheap.

Now, do I seriously believe it will happen? No. But what the heck. Put me down for Jorvorskie. Gives me something to root for.

(I just think the Texans have more pressing needs than RB.)

all the best,

OK, I'll go out (way out) on a limb here.

Jorvorskie Lane, RB, Texas A&M. round 7

If the rationale is that we need a between the tackle bruiser, especially in short-yardage red zone situations, and also to spell Slaton (and I am not saying I am bought into this last aspect of the argument), then Lane would certainly be a bull who could be had on the cheap.

Now, do I seriously believe it will happen? No. But what the heck. Put me down for Jorvorskie. Gives me something to root for.

(I just think the Texans have more pressing needs than RB.)

all the best,
rick

And he could also double as a space eating DT!

I'm a Uconn student so I've had a first row view of the Donald Brown show this year. As a texans fan, I would love to see Houston take him to split carries with Slaton. He's a physical runner with a burst and the vision and patience to fit perfectly in a ZB scheme. He's the physical back that I'd love to see Houston pair with Slaton's speed.

Now, his problem is that he's not a great pass blocker (if you've seen the UCONN pass offense, you'd realize he's had almost no practice), but he's got an absolutely amazing attitude and work ethic and hopefully that can be taken care of.

Shonn Greene would be the best fit to compliment Slaton. I doubt that Greene would be there in the 3rd to mid rounds where we would realistically take a RB considering how many needs we have on defense.

Greene is a bruiser though, and has a skill set a little different than what Slaton has. He is great at getting yards after the first hit. I would love to have a back field with Greene and Slaton. Hell, Greene could end up being the better guy for all I know. Sort of doubtful considering how well Slaton played this season, but Greene has loads of potential coming into the NFL. He reminds me a lot of Chester Taylor. Highly doubtful that he would be on the boards when we would decide to get another back though.

Personally - I think the 3rd is too early to take our RB. We just have too many defensive holes. We're looking for a guy who will probably get a MAX of 10-12 carries.

The more I think about it, the more I think we're going to end up addressing it in free agency.

I expect us to go out in the 5-7th to get one. Hell, may even go undrafted FA.

Please read my entire post before you critizise. Forgive me if I push my guy too much but I want Ian Johnson 5'11" 199lbs 4.47 speed. In the ZBS, we need that one cut and go player like Slaton to get us to the red zone quickly. Johnson is same type which allows SS to get a rest and keep a speedy back capable of getting 20 yards each time he touches ball on the field. I see need for a stronger back for 2-4 yards that we should be able to get in later rounds. This back can be used for 3rd or 4th and short or goal. A FB could handle this role but has not historically for Texans. I'd like to Slaton type backs splitting 35 carries and a power back for 5 to 10. IMO this does not have to be a 250 lb + guy but about 230 minimum. If a Green is there in 3rd, I'd be all over him. As of now, I want a DE and FS in first two rounds. Also, I've voiced a trade down scenario with maybe Philadelphia in first to allow them to get Mays and us to get William Moore + a 3rd round.

...I have a certain magazine that says the following:

No one is likely to improve his draft status in a bowl game more than Colorado State's Gartrell Johnson, a 225-pound running back who set a FBS bowl record with 375 yards from scrimmage (285 rushing, 90 receiving) in a New Mexico Bowl romp over Fresno State.

And one NFL front office in need of a big back is well aware of Johnson: Texans coach Gary Kubiak's sons Klay (QB) and Klint (SS) play for CSU.

RUSHING OFFENSE: A The Panthers finished the season averaging 152.3 yards per game on the ground and had a league-high 29 touchdowns on the ground. DeAngelo Williams didn't get any love in the MVP voting, but he had an incredible season rushing for 1,515 yards and 18 touchdowns. He also averaged 5.5 yards per carry behind a rebuilt offensive line. Rookie Jonathan Stewart set team rookie records rushing for 836 yards and 10 touchdowns - NFL Draft Scout

We don't need a RB in the first round for one, and for two you're out of your mind if you think that Kubes and Smith would even consider it. Kubiak let us go a whopping two years without a RB and passed on Mendenhall and many others the year before. RB is the last position that the Texans would use their #1 pick on right now.

We have to get either a S or DE in the first round or possibly a LB if a major stud pass rushing LB is available.

We need a RB to back up Slaton, but we can do that this year in the 3rd or 4th or maybe even the 5th.

That's why I selected Ian Johnson. Denver as we all know had 4 backs and this past season we basically had one, Slaton. I can't remember being the exact scenario two years in a row. Theoretically, we pick 15 rather than 18 and should get a very similar package in trade down scenario. Now wouldn't that be a kick in the head? If we don't plug most of our major holes this off season, something will smell. I just wished one of the FA defensive players like Asomugha would end up with Texans. I just want one defensive starter in free agency for my late Christmas present.

Exactly. We have typically gone after players with Buyer Beware stickers all over them. You have to be aggressive in FA and the draft to build a team fast. There are always good free agent signings every year, but you've got to jump on players fast when they're a position of need, because the good ones usually get signed pretty quick. And you're not over paying when you're getting the production. You just don't want to over pay when you are going after a FA that most likely won't have many years left on their contract.

I wonder what the Eagles will be doing with Lito Sheppard now since they were never able to trade him this year.

My question is, how will contracts be worded once the cap is gone? Do you sign cheap first years and then balloon a large payment first year after bargaining agreement is eliminated. Some insist it will be re-negotiated, but I don't know.

Granted they made some bad signings early on with Wade, Walker to get them in trouble, but even the year of Weaver they were limited because of Glenn and those other players. Just wonder if there are really people they could have signed the last three years after having made early bad decisions.

Man, I can't go back several years and remember each free agent that was available in which year and what the specific cap figures were at each part of the off season. The Texans have been around like 7 years now. Every year it is a hand full of free agents though that each team could use or that could fill a need or two here and there just about. It's not always the money that is on the cap initially, but in some cases you have to get creative and dump a player or two here and there or trade another guy away to free up space for a free agent if you think he is an important enough player. The Cowboys are great at that. Someone was mentioning Jerry Jones son yesterday, and he does a great job at freeing up space and structuring contracts to make it work for a given season where they just have to wait until the next year to have more room to pay them more of the salary the next season. A lot of times it is all about how the contracts are structured.

Lito Sheppard in my eyes would have been a good player to go after from the Eagles. I'm not sure if we could have gotten a good enough deal from them to pull the trigger, but it would have been interesting to look at. He is a good veteran that should be around for a while and won't demand top dollars.

I would have liked to have tried to make a move for Stroud last year as well. He could have been a nice answer to our DT debacle for a few years possibly.

Those are two from last off season that I remember I wanted the Texans to go after.

I thought you were talking about guys like Nate Clements or Asante Samuel.

Stroud was doable. Hard to criticize that one too much though since they expected Okoye to make a 2nd year jump.

Shepard wasn't a free agent and isn't this year either. If the trade price was right, maybe as high as a 4th, that could be an option.

Main point was, under Kubiak they haven't had the money to go after the Clements, Faneca, Samuels of the world. Let's see what they do this year. I tend to like the 2nd tier down for money and risk reasons. Look at the hundreds of millions spent on WR FA's last year and none panned out.

Like I said, you have to be careful. I wasn't really referring to the BIG BLOCKBUSTER players that got those max contracts like Clements, Samuel, and a few others. Sheppard wouldn't have demanded that kind of money. He would have had to have been had in a trade. A 4th wouldn't have gotten him though and I wouldn't have traded Sheppard for a 4th rounder either. Maybe a 3rd and a 5th or something like that. I would have done that, because all we will end up doing is drafting another CB somewhere in the 2nd rounds or later any way and those players are gambles while Sheppard is a really solid player who should have a lot of years left to play.

I really wanted Stroud though. Not to replace Okoye, but to replace Travis Johnson. Stroud is a beast and I would have loved to have put him next to Mario.

And another thing you have to remember is that every off season there is always a ton of players that are whining about this and mad about that. Usually having to do with their contracts or something and many of them become tradeable players. You've got to be aggressive when talking to other teams about finding out what they might be willing to accept when they have a disgruntled player and they're in a vulnerable situation. The Patriots front office is great at that and the Cowboys are as well. Same with the Eagles. The Eagles always seem to pick up a few really good players that fit in their defense every year that aren't really HUGE name players who are demanding the Bigtime contracts and get good value out of them.

BPA and yes Brown is a stud, he and Slaton would push each other huge heights. Just get them the balls.

Drafting a RB in the first would be a huge mistake. We have so many needs, BPA at 15 would work. Almost every position could be drafted on D.

Like I said, you have to be careful. I wasn't really referring to the BIG BLOCKBUSTER players that got those max contracts like Clements, Samuel, and a few others. Sheppard wouldn't have demanded that kind of money. He would have had to have been had in a trade. A 4th wouldn't have gotten him though and I wouldn't have traded Sheppard for a 4th rounder either. Maybe a 3rd and a 5th or something like that. I would have done that, because all we will end up doing is drafting another CB somewhere in the 2nd rounds or later any way and those players are gambles while Sheppard is a really solid player who should have a lot of years left to play.

I really wanted Stroud though. Not to replace Okoye, but to replace Travis Johnson. Stroud is a beast and I would have loved to have put him next to Mario.

And another thing you have to remember is that every off season there is always a ton of players that are whining about this and mad about that. Usually having to do with their contracts or something and many of them become tradeable players. You've got to be aggressive when talking to other teams about finding out what they might be willing to accept when they have a disgruntled player and they're in a vulnerable situation. The Patriots front office is great at that and the Cowboys are as well. Same with the Eagles. The Eagles always seem to pick up a few really good players that fit in their defense every year that aren't really HUGE name players who are demanding the Bigtime contracts and get good value out of them.If you think Shepherd is worth a 3rd and 5th, think about trading down from 15th. We got a 3rd and 6th for 18th spot in first. There is your trade for Shepherd & you still have all your regular picks. I would do that trade only if you think Shepherd will beat out Dunta or Reeves.

- NFL Draft Scout

Yeah, but until this year, Williams was'nt producing. Slaton is. You dont get a complamentary running back in the 1st. It doesnt make sense when you haave needs everywhere else. Pittsburg could do it because they are really talented. We arent.

rickyb modifies to say..."J-Train will be an UDFA signee"

Is he gonna play OG or FB?

He weighed in at 295 and his bread & butter (goal line back) failed miserably in the Shrine game.

It's good for a goal line back to be big, but not so big that he can't even get momentum before he gets hit.

beerlover
01-22-2009, 12:50 PM
still like Jeremiah Johnson in the 3rd rd. similar package of skills to Slaton. second gear ability to run after the catch, playmaker written all over him. hope they can trade down & use extra 3rd on him too, cause the smart money is on a different position like safety/cb/de or dt. we need more picks man.

did notice one name today @ the Senior Bowl I was impressed with in the 6th/7th. Tony Flammetta, Syracuse 6-0 246 played FB but has quck feet, takes good power angels, can block & add reps on special teams.

That is what he is, a walk on. This is a deep RB draft IMO, and Johnson just does not have the quickness to get outside like he did in college. Nice college back who had a fairy tale season a few years ago.

A guy I like is

Kory Sheets, Purdue, 6'0" 206 lbs: Basically was a main component of Purdue's offense which didn't have much besides Sheets. He is the all-time TD leader at Purdue who has great hands and can be a return threat as well. If he is there in the 5th or lower and we haven't selected a RB I would take him.

You guys pretty much have named all the other RBs.

JWarren14
01-26-2009, 05:47 PM
After watching the Senior Bowl there were some good RBs that caught my eye:

One was Andre Brown from NC State who seemed to get more work than any other RB. He had a few good hard runs and got a few short yardage runs that resulted in first downs. He caught the ball exceptionally well out of the backfield and ran the screen play very effectively. Also he has good size and doesn't shy away from contact when taking on blockers.

Another one was Jeremiah Johnson from Oregon. He showed good speed out of the backfield and has good foot speed as well, he is a bit on the small side but would be another home run threat out of the backfield.

Kory Sheets had a great return and if his blockers could give him just a tenth of a second before somebody was there to meet him he would have had a few solid runs. There was one play where a LB and the ball were there simultaneously. He would be a great situational back.

Rashad Jennings the transfer to Pitt who came out of Liberty is probably the one back I would love the Texans to get. He has great size and speed and with him and Slaton we could definitely run down the defense and set up the play action bootleg for the Schaub to AJ TD Connection.

Some other backs did alright such as Peerman from Virginia, he had a fumble and that worries me but has some good size. James Davis had a few good runs, but for some reason I wasn't that impressed with him. Those are the ones that come into mind when I think back to Saturday's Senior Bowl. I am sure we can get a great value at RB in the 3rd round.

Scott has a burst, moves & cuts similar to Chris Johnson. have no idea what his time will be @ the combine but its much faster than listed, could create a buzz. Summers would be a steal if signed undrafted, I think he could make the Texans roster, at least the practice squad, very powerful lower body build, good hands untapped potential could project to power RB instead of FB in NFL. not sure about his blocking skill set.
