This guy should fit the Texans to a T.
Would be a great value on the second day.
May turn out to be better than several first day picks.
Thoughts?

A.J. Jefferson, Fresno State
Height: 6-0. Weight: 186.
Projected 40 Time: 4.48.
Combine 40 Time: 4.43.
Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.
Benchx225: 7. Vertical: 44.
Projected Round (2010): 3-4.
3/3/10: Mike Mayock repeatedly praised A.J. Jefferson during the Combine. Jefferson, who is 6-0 with long arms, ran a 4.43 and notched a 44-inch vertical. He's a project, but has a ton of upside.

1/9/10: A poor year for A.J. Jefferson; he averaged just 23.2 yards per kickoff return - down a whole six yards from last year.

3/7/09: Not much of a corner, but A.J. Jefferson had yet another kickoff return for a touchdown as a junior. He averaged a dazzling 29.3 yards per return.

8/5/08: A.J. Jefferson is listed here as a kick returner. He scored two touchdowns on special teams last year, and even maintained the nation's top return average. He also blocked a field goal and returned that for a score. Maybe our DB Coach..Coach Gibbs feels the same way...good grab in the 4th:texflag:

By second day, do you mean third day?

Rounds 2-3 or rounds 4-7?

Sounds like a good value in the 4th round if he's there. The Texans could use another KR to replace the aging Davis.

Err, I mean third day.
Even though he might got selected in the third.

Some would consider him a reach in the third, but I've seen him in the second round on some draft board.

When I have a chance, I will put together some scouting notes on him.
For some reason, it seems that the info on him shows a lot of inconsistency, which I don't see a whole lot of (not neccessarily untrue.)

This guy looks to have very good potential. I think he has a very decent chance to become a starter in the NFL.
