I figured we could use a thread to put all the confirmed contact between the Texans and prospects. I found a couple so far.

Houston - Texas linebacker Keenan Robinson

Houston - Ohio State offensive tackle Mike Adams and Boston College cornerback Donnie Fletcher
http://www.walterfootball.com/seniorbowl2012meetings.php

I spoke to the Bucs, Jaguars, Dolphins, Chiefs, Falcons, Texans, Chargers, Packers, Panthers, Browns, Seahawks, and there were more but I can’t recall them at the moment.

There is a page called player / team observations on draftcountdown.com that list teams and players they have seen together. LINK (http://draftcountdown.com/features/SeniorBowl/Senior-Bowl.php)

They show us to have visited
Mike Adams


Cam Johnson, DE, Virginia
Analysis
Strengths: Tremendous explosion, accelerates low with power. Relentless blindside pursuit, tracks down ball carriers on the other side of the field. Fast in a straight line. Excellent wide and bull rushes when quick off the snap. Strong tackler. Has good power in hands and can anchor, shed, and chase.

Weaknesses: Is slightly high cut and somewhat stiff in the hips, likely too stiff for 3-4 OLB consideration. Doesn't change directions well. Can be late off the snap. Has a history of serious injuries, including knee and pectoral. Needs more pass rush moves beyond wide and bull.

NFL Comparison: Tyler Brayton, Carolina Panthers

Derek Wolfe
I'm telling you this guy fits our mold.

Marvin Jones, WR, California
WR Marvin Jones was overshadowed a bit by Keenan Allen, but no one has made more spectacular catches along the sidelines than Jones, who has caught at least one pass in 37 straight games. In the bowl game, his chief contribution may be as a punt returner.

Mitchell Schwartz, OT, California
2010 Season
A second-team All-Pac-10 choice that started all 12 games at left tackle, anchoring an offensive line that blocked for 1,167-yard rusher Shane Vereen … earned a second-team spot on Phil Steele's postseason All-Pac-10 team and a first-team position on his mid-season All-Pac-10 squad … a member of the Jewish Sports Review's 2010 College Football All-America Team … recipient of team's Brick Muller Award as Cal's Most Valuable Offensive Lineman for the second straight year and winner of the team's Andy Smith Award as the Cal player with the most Big "C" time … an honorable mention Pac-10 All-Academic selection for the third consecutive season … selected as a second-team preseason All-Pac-10 choice by Athlon, Lindy's and Phil Steele, while Steele also listed him as the nation's No. 63 draft-eligible tackle.


Interesting that they are looking at OT's. A position no one thinks is a need. Adams is a definite first rounder so I wonder what they are thinking there. Maybe they are covering their bases in case they loose Breisal. Moving Winston inside to RG and adding Adams at LT would be sweet.

Except for a few of his "spectacular" catches, he doesn't reach out to catch the ball very often, mostly letting them hit inside his body. Do coaches still teach the Diamond technique to receiver or what. I haven't seen anyone really use it at the pro level.

For those that don't know, the Diamond Technique is a way to easily catch passes that are thrown within catching distance. You put the tips of your thumbs and and forefingers together like your making a diamond and spread out your fingers, When the tip of the ball goes through the gap made by your hands the natural force of the ball will close your hands around it and stop it. Try it with your kids, they'll learn to catch extremely well extremely fast. The Diamond Tech is used for passes thrown above the waist, for lower passes you put the tips of your pinkies together and your hands in a "cradling position" I call it the cradling technique but I forgot what coach called it.
I taught my 10 year old nephew and the kid has been ripping up his little leagues since.

Butler signed for two years for right around 1mill each year. He will be a free agent in 2013.

Is there precedent for teams not starting their 1st round picks (aside from instances where you might sit a QB for a year)? Even the best teams in the NFL have holes where a 1st round pick is going to/should be better than the guy ahead of him.

Seems like a first round draft pick who can't start would be an indictment on your scouting more so than a statement of your depth/talent level.

Seems like drafting a guy in the first would be an indictment on your scouting moreso than a statement of your depth/talent level.

Steelers, Packers, Ravens and others have all picked players in the first round that sat behind others in the lineup their rookie years and came out fine. The last 10 picks in the first round are usually not guys that are garunteed to start unless those teams have a specific glaring hole that could be fixed by said rookie.

Not every superstar in the NFL starts out as one as a rookie.

If every year a team has a spot where a rookie is automatically better than what they have every single year then they are not good enough. Even with the salary cap and free agency, the better organizations are not running out rookies who don't have prove better than an existing player.

A late 1st or 2nd round WR is not just waltzing and taking Kevin Walter's job w/o excellent performance. We have gotten there and it is a good thing, not a bad one.

Aggies WR to meet with Texans
Texas A&M WR Jeff Fuller said that he would be meeting with Texans GM Rick Smith at next month's Combine in Indianapolis. Fuller (6'4, 217), who struggled with hamstring injuries during the 2011 season, said he was scheduled to meet with Smith during this week's Senior Bowl before but that meeting was cancelled and Smith departed to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl, where the Texans staff is coaching the AFC team.

Randle and many other prospects faced their potential employers at the combine. The former LSU Tiger met with the Texans and liked his meeting with Gary Kubiak and his staff.

“They’re just looking for a playmaker and I told them I can be that guy if they want me to be,” Randle said. “It was a pretty good conversation with Coach (Gary Kubiak)’s staff and the GM, a lot of good things were said.”

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/05/05/our-discoveries-after-tracking-pre-draft-visits-and-workouts/

from another thread but need to highlighted here also.

. In 2011, twelve of the top-14 picks either worked out for or visited their team before the draft. The only players who did not work out for or visit the team they were picked by were Texans defensive end J.J. Watt and Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Jags G.M. Gene Smith did personally attend Gabbert’s Insight Bowl game against Iowa, however, and the Texans don’t use pre-draft visits on first-round prospects. Which brings us to our next discovery.

2. Some teams don’t use any pre-draft visits on elite prospects. The Texans, Bears, Jaguars, and Packers concern themselves almost strictly with late-round, undrafted types when scheduling visits. For example, the player drafted earliest with whom we know Green Bay formally visited was Markell Carter, the 194th overall pick. The Raiders and Colts, for the most part, also fall into this category.

And either the Houston media is not at all concerned with reporting pre-draft visits and workouts, or the Texans just don’t have many of them. (Our guess is the former.) We counted a league-low six Texans pre-draft visits, and each team is allowed up to 30.

West Virginia’s Bruce Irvin may be heating up in the draft to the point he could creep into the first round. He is scheduled to take 12 visits to NFL teams. He is appealing both the 3-4 teams as an outside linebacker and 4-3 teams as a defensive end. Among the teams he is visiting are the Bears, Browns, Chiefs, Dolphins, Forty Niners, Jets, Panthers, Patriots, Texans and Titans. Part of the reason so many want to see him is coaches want to put him on the board and watch tape with him, and have a chance to see what makes him tick.

As I have been told, the knock on Kendricks is intelligence- apparently his interviews at the combine did not go so well.

Nope. At 5'11", 240 lbs is a lot of muscle mass. He is short, but I do not think he is small. He has good upper body strength, and a lot of explosive power in his legs and core. I have no concerns about his size.

http://a.espncdn.com/photo/2012/0228/ncf_a_kendricks_ps_400.jpg

40-yard dash (4.47), vertical jump (39.5) and broad jump (10-7). He tied for fifth overall at the combine in both the vertical and broad jump. He also had a time of 4.19 in the 20-yard shuttle, the fifth fastest for linebackers.

Quick enough to stay with Tight Ends and slot receivers as well, so he may be a 3-down LB in our system. He might make a good RB too if that whole linebacker thing doesn't work out...

He might make a good RB too if that whole linebacker thing doesn't work out...Shorter than ideal with limited measureables and is too easily engulfed by blockers near the line of scrimmage. Needs to anchor better at the point of attack and was too often knocked backwards or off his feet. More of a straight-line athlete with some stiffness in his hips, lacking the smooth change of direction ability to quickly redirect. Slips off too many ballcarriers and needs to complete tackles -- will go for the big hit too often instead of consistently wrapping up. Has some durability concerns after a shoulder and thumb injury hampered him in 2011 -- wore a cast on his left hand for part of his senior season. Has some minor character concerns after he was suspended for parts of two different games for separate violations of team rules.

Your not worried about his lack of size at 5'11" and 239 lbs., how's he going to stand up to the pounding from blocking FB and OG?


Some feel, because of that, he would better make a beast of a SS.

I don't have a dog in this fight and it's prolly apples to plums but IIRC #34 THE GREAT was 5'11" and 220ish. He seemed to do OK.Earl Campbell in college was 220ish but 232 NFL.

Earl Campbell in college was 220ish but 232 NFL.

Earl was RB not a LB and in the 70's your D-linemen were in the 270 lbs. range, not 320-350 lbs. range. Different era entirely. Today's NFL isn't even close to what we grew up watching.

CND, we're not looking for that type of SS, we got rid of Pollard because of his lack of coverage skills. The NFL has become a passing league thus the reason we converted a CB to SS, because of his coverage skills.

Dutchrudder, he might look strong in pictures but so do the 320 lbs. OG's that will steamroll him. We've already got Sharpton who's the same size as Kendricks and this is a big boy league.

JMO, but Kendricks is just to small to play ILB in a 3-4 where he'll routinely take on FB's and OG's. I just don't see him withstanding a season long pounding at his size.

Shorter than ideal with limited measureables and is too easily engulfed by blockers near the line of scrimmage. Needs to anchor better at the point of attack and was too often knocked backwards or off his feet. More of a straight-line athlete with some stiffness in his hips, lacking the smooth change of direction ability to quickly redirect. Slips off too many ballcarriers and needs to complete tackles -- will go for the big hit too often instead of consistently wrapping up. Has some durability concerns after a shoulder and thumb injury hampered him in 2011 -- wore a cast on his left hand for part of his senior season. Has some minor character concerns after he was suspended for parts of two different games for separate violations of team rules.

Good find BB.
If he's getting knocked down or engulfed by college level O-linemen, then he'll get killed in the NFL.

2nd part sounds like a poor tackler. Granted that can be fixed but overall he sounds like a late round pick that makes the practice squad, maybe, and I'm looking for potential starters in the 2nd round.

Maybe someone should tell that to the texans as they are the ones meeting with him.

I can't see them going through the trouble if the didn't have genuine interest.

He is good in pass coverage as a lb, has great speed and he is a thumper. He's not rated as a second round prospect for no reason.

Does he have flaws? Sure. But make no mistake about it, he is a good player.

Since badboy only posted the negatives the writer posted, here are his positives:

Has a filled-out frame with good thickness packed on his body. Plays at full speed at all times with an active motor and determined quickness in pursuit. Possesses functional strength with powerful hands, working hard to shed at the point of attack and is at his best against the run -- downhill defender and physical tackler. Uses his eyes well to decipher and break down the play, showing good awareness and discipline to not be fooled by fakes. Takes accurate angles with good closing burst, showing the footwork to work well in tight areas. Tough and strong and has earned the reputation as a high effort player. Has some versatility with starting experience at both inside and outside linebacker in Cal's 3-4 defensive scheme. Was productive in his three years as a starter and was the team's most decorated player in 2011, earning Conference Defensive Player of the Year honors.

Is he a perfect prospect? No, but if he was he would be a first rounder, and not a late 2nd/early 3rd kind of guy.

No man, your expectations are too low. If our draft doesn't go like this, then we need to fire Rick Smith!

1. Robert Griffin QB
2. Donta Hightower LB
3. Jerel Worthy DT
4a. Michael Floyd WR
4b. Brian Quick WR
5. Mitchell Schwartz OT
6. Shea McClellan OLB
7. Randy Bullock K

That's without trading up for better players too.

West Virginia’s Bruce Irvin may be heating up in the draft to the point he could creep into the first round. He is scheduled to take 12 visits to NFL teams. He is appealing both the 3-4 teams as an outside linebacker and 4-3 teams as a defensive end. Among the teams he is visiting are the Bears, Browns, Chiefs, Dolphins, Forty Niners, Jets, Panthers, Patriots, Texans and Titans. Part of the reason so many want to see him is coaches want to put him on the board and watch tape with him, and have a chance to see what makes him tick.

I got Irvin going to us in the 2nd.

Character concerns alone normally don't drop guys too far. Character concerns with less than impressive measureables tend to make guys drop.

Bruce Irvin was productive and he has top notch measureables.

I think someone is going to take a gamble on him and hope that he doesn't get into any trouble and can stay on the field.

Don't worry, people will come around once he starts blowing up offensive lines. :fingergun:


Last year I said Watt was perfect for this defense. This year Worthy is my guy! There is no other defensive player in this draft that fits this team better.

People were freaking out when we drafted Watt. I really believe Worthy can have the same kind of effect Watt had as a rookie. Some will say well he was inconsistent. I'm not worried about that at all. He was the only player on MSU's front seven that was any good, yet he was still able to dominate at times. He's got high football IQ, is a vocal leader and has an explosive first step. He is perfect for this defense.

Cody is a very serviceable but he does little in terms of creating problems for offensive lines. Put Worthy in between Watt and Smith and you now have 3 players that are capable of getting penetration against double teams on a regular basis. Think of all the problems that will create for offensive lines.

If Brooks is there in the 2nd Rd he will be a steal

I guess he's projected to go early in the 2nd and they feel he will not be available by the time they pick? Perhaps a Duane Brown situation?

If the guy is a hit, then they are always worth a draft pick IMO. I don't really care about the perceived reach so much as the actual production of a player. It only matters when they don't work out for you :)

As for Quick, he's moving up boards all over the place. A couple months ago he was thought to be a 3-4 round guy, but now it seems he will be at mid-2nd rounder. The question is, can the Texans trade back 15 spots or so and pick up a 3rd and still get him? Say Seattle wanted to give us #43 and #75 for #26 to jump up and get a guy like Fleener, Worthy or Perry. Could we still get Quick at 43? I think so, but I also think he may be there at 58. At this point I expect him to be taken somewhere around 40-60.

It would also be cool to have back to back picks in the 3rd :D

Another potential trade partner would be Dallas who really really needs a center. I expect Konz to be there at 26, but probably won't fall past Baltimore or Green Bay.

Experience suggests that the Texans will not use a pre-draft visit with their first round pick-http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/05/05/our-discoveries-after-tracking-pre-draft-visits-and-workouts/. The attentive reader may note that none of these players are first round prospects. (Jonathan Martin is the exception and may go late in the first round).
As best I can piece together from several sources, these players have visited or will visit with the Texans:

Mario Louis, WR, Grambling State
Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford
Brandon Brooks, OL, Miami-Ohio
Bruce Irvin, LB, West Virginia
Mychal Kendricks, LB, California
Lavonte David, LB, Nebraska
Derek Wolfe, DL, Cincinnati
Jerel Worthy, DL Michigan State
Ronnie Cameron, DL, Old Dominion
Brandon Hardin, DB, Oregon State
Ron Brooks, DB, LSU
Lionel Smith, DB, Texas A&M
Desmond Marrow, DB, Toledo
Donnie Fletcher, DB, Boston College
Jeremy Lane, DB, Northwestern State
Tavon Wilson, SS, Illinois
Kelcie McCray, S, Arkansas State
George Iloka, S, Boise State
Randy Bullock, K, Texas A&M

So, whatya think about these guys? Love 'em? Hate 'em? Intrigued?

Mario Louis, WR, Grambling State
I kind of like this guy's versatility and it looks like he can actually catch the ball. If we're grading on a curve (in other words, compared to Jacoby Jones) this guy could be a late round home-run. UDFA
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=kGBy4pNSEgA

Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford
This guy was rated the #2 tackle in the draft prior to the combine and then his stock fell. I've seen him mocked late in the first all the way to late in the second round. Looks to me like a solid run-blocker, could possibly start at right tackle or at least provide support at swing tackle. Round 1-2

Brandon Brooks, OL, Miami-Ohio
Wasn't invited to combine but his draft stock is rising rapidly. This guy could bench press a truck and he's predicted to fit well into a zone scheme. Rounds 2-4

Bruce Irvin, LB, West Virginia
Could be a gifted edge-rusher but he's very raw. This position has a high bust factor. Rounds 3-4

Mychal Kendricks, LB, California
I gotta say I'm intrigued by this guy. Played outside and then played inside in the 3-4. Good coverage skills, fastest time at combine for LB in 12 years. Kind of small for ILB, but so is Sharpton. Rounds 3-5

Lavonte David, LB, Nebraska
Considered more a Will 4-3 prospect but a good one. Not much of a pass rusher but good coverage skills, small. Rounds 2-3

Derek Wolfe, DL, Cincinnati
Pegged as a high motor player best-fitted as a 5-technique in a 3-4. Sound familiar? Rounds 2-3

Jerel Worthy, DL Michigan State
Possible fit as 5-technique minus a few pounds or in rotation as a Phillips-style NT. Rounds 2-3

Ronnie Cameron, DL, Old Dominion
Dominant player in small conference, looks like possible NT. Rounds 5-UDFA

Brandon Hardin, DB, Oregon State
Projected as FS, special teams gunner. Rounds 4-6

Ron Brooks, DB, LS
Projected as SS. Round 3

Lionel Smith, DB, Texas A&M
Round 7-UDFA

Desmond Marrow, DB, Toledo
UDFA

Donnie Fletcher, DB, Boston College
4-year starter. Rounds 4-6

Jeremy Lane, DB, Northwestern State
Round 6-UDFA

Tavon Wilson, SS, Illinois
Rounds 6-7

Kelcie McCray, S, Arkansas State
Rounds 6-7

George Iloka, S, Boise State
Rounds 2-4

Looks like a typical Texans' draft...DL, OL, LBs, some developmental DBs for special teams and UDFA receivers. Except for that first pick...

I put Wade in one of my mocks.

He could be a real steal. It seems as though he has matured.

We missed this visit...Nick Mondek met with the Texans for a private work out...he tweeted pic of Reliant Stadium.

That makes a couple linemen that came in that got drafted...Brooks and Mondek.
