The Texans agreed to contract terms today with sixth-round pick Trindon Holliday, the wide receiver/kick returner from LSU.


Holliday, who'll return kicks and be incorporated into the passing game, is the first draft choice in the NFL to sign.

The 5-5, 160-pound Holliday brings world-class speed to the Texans. He ran an official time of 4.34 at the NFL combine in February and won the 100-meters at the 2009 NCAA outdoor track championships with a time of 10 seconds flat.

The fastest guy we drafted is the fastest guy to sign.

Coincedence i think not.

Holliday ran a 4.21 40-yard draft at the combine.

That's the fastest draft I've ever seen.... solid work John Clayton.

Cool! I hope the guy torches everyone on his returns.

We predicted this pick, something that is rather difficult to do that late in the draft.

Great call! I think this little waterbug is gonna give our team a tremendous boost. He is very versatile, and as they say " speed kills". We have had some fast guys (Mathis, Davis, Jones); but nothing like the moves this cat can bring.

If this guy translates to the NFL, our special teams are in good shape.

No kidding, right?

Sooner or later he's going to find a crease and there will be much screaming and cheering..... and that's just at my house, much less Reliant!

Yep.

This may be premature, but I think he can get 7-8 TDs this year. A handful on special teams, and 1 or 2 on offense.

Sooner or later, someone out there is going to remind him the hard way that 5'5" and 160 in the NFL is not quite the same as 5'5" and 160 in college. He'll definitely be running with a sense of urgency, though.

Can't tackle him if you can't see him. :kingkong:

I can see him getting us good field position on kick returns pretty regularly. The question is, will he stay healthy?

He could be really dangerous on punt returns as well if Jacoby is taking more reps at receiver.

Yeah, if he's smart - he'll be running scared. Fear is a great motivator when it comes to grabbing an extra gear.

I get what you're saying but you got to be fearless returning kicks. You got 11 men trucking after you full speed. I mean... Jacoby missed time because he got laid out. If anything, fear hampered Jacoby Jones' progress. Remember who laid him out? A kicker. JJ's a big dude. Still cracks me up today.

That kicker to a hard swipe and dislocated Jacoby's shoulder.

I've seen the kick return plenty of times. Jacoby's a pansy but that's not my point. My point... a big dude got leveled by a little dude. Holliday does not need to play scared. He needs to do what he does best. I fully expect him to have a short career. I can't imagine Holliday's going to make opponents look silly on a regular basis without being brought back to reality via a crunching play or even a dirty play. Special teamers are generally expendable. Isn't ST where the most severe njuries usually happen?

I remember that play! Against the Colts. It was their P(at the time) Hunter Smith iirc.

And yes, ST can be a risky proposition. Our very own Harry Williams and Cedric Killings had their NFL career cut short due to ST injuries.

Exactly. Don't get me wrong. I expect Trindon Holliday to have an impact. I just don't have any illusions of him giving us that impact for years to come. He's going to be fun to watch while he's here. I'll be seeking his autograph out at all-access.

I loved this pick when made, and still do. Not only for Holliday's game breaking skills, but for the ripple effect it could have on the rest of the team.

I think Kubiak looked back to the 90's Broncos, when Rod Smith had a breakout year as a WR after relinquishing his punt return duties. Jacoby Jones could very well be on the verge of such a season, and his focus needs to be on the WR position. The more playmakers this team can put on the field, the better.

Here's to hoping he has even more success than another J.J. we used to have. If he does, he'll be a momentum changer every game.
