Can Gary Walker be our NT?
 
Walker isn't the pass-rusher he once was...I'm wondering if he couldn't become our NT next year? Any opinions?

If so, then we have more flexibility in either signing Seth or looking to draft for younger NT to develop.

I really would like a more athletic DE in his spot that could help our pass-rush a bit more.

Its possible for him to be NT but with steady decline he might not give much pressure up the middle.

:hmmm: I never thought about that one. It might not be that bad of an idea :hmmm:

I agree. Draft Spears to start at RDE and move Smith to NT. Instant upgrade at 2 positions. :howdy:

The idea has been brought up quite a few times, and his body type seems to be good for a NT...He may need to add a little more bulk...

Overall, he is (obviously) our least injury-prone d-lineman, so based on that alone, he should at least get a try-out at NT, the most crucial position on the d-line...

What about the LDE position though?? Unless you're including Walker still starting at the LDE position also idonno:

TexansTrueFan 02-05-2005 11:22 PM

In this particular scenario, I believe Walker would be the starter at LDE...With the money we're paying him, he will start unless he's injured, with is very possible...

STEEL BLUE TEXANS 02-06-2005 12:09 AM

Yes, Walker would still be starting at LDE.

TexansTrueFan 02-06-2005 12:28 AM

STEEL BLUE TEXANS 02-06-2005 12:41 AM

Smith starts at NT

Walker starts at LDE

OK, I can bite on Robaire being a strong possibility at NT, but I'm still thinking that Walker could handle the position and maybe even rejuvenate himself. His short, squatty frame is perfect and his experience as a DT would help.

We could still draft Spears or Shaun Cody and then we have a solid line. Especially if Seth heals and returns.

D-ReK 02-06-2005 05:14 PM

If Seth heals and returns, he'll be the starter at NT...

True, but NT is tough spot and allowing Walker or Smith time in the rotation should only help our line.
