my top rated cover corner in the draft, speed & athleic moves translate to the next level. would have to select him here as rumors fly that the Dolphins (#25) Ravens (#26) both are interested.
2nd. RD. #46 Texans select - Clint Sintim, OLB Virginia 6-3 256
stand up elephant linebacker, can come in blitz packages or drop into coverage, good character hard worker who brings a physical presence (would take English but project him off the board here).
3rd. RD. #77 Texans select - Rashad Jennings, RB Liberty 6-1 231
Power-back with good feet to complement Steve Slaton. also looks good receiving ball in space using soft hands & ability to run after catch.
3rd. RD. #85 Texans select - (via Phi.) Jonathan Luigs, OC Arkansas 6-4 301
the last of a really solid group ready to start as a rookie. strong @ the point of attack, uses good base for leverage with excellent hand placement to redirect tackles. question early if footwork good enough for ZBS but think Gibbs would easily develop him into the Texans future starting center for the next 10 years.
4th. RD. #108 Texans select - Lawrence Sidbury, Jr. DE Richmond 6-3 266
developmental proto-typical 4-3 DE with long arms & overall athletic ability.
4th. RD. #114 Texans select - (via Min.) Jonathan Casillas, OLB Wisconsin 6-1 228
WLB back-up to Adibi, very similar player coming off injury & only reason still available excellent in prusuit & coverage.
4th. RD. #117 Texans select - (via Phi.) Brandon Tate, WR/KR North Carolina 6-0 183
playmaker similar to Jacoby w/better hands. another prospect who falls coming off injury. love his big play ability can run good routes.
That would be sweet.
