Especially as UDFA Adrian Foster (that type of back) seemed to do fairly well last 3 games against so so competition. We have decided to go with Ryan Mathews who is the protypical back for this team. 5'11" 200 lbs 4.44 combine is hard to turn away from. His only "negative" is the college he came from.
We hope to post our next mock soon but there is even more discussion on the players we think will fit, be available and still be someone the Texans would actually draft than our first mock. We must be a touch insane to put in the hours of research we do, but we three really love this part of the year.
I haven't been on much recently so it's quite possible that I just didn't notice the change until now.
I've been on Mathews' bandwagon for a really long time and I'm glad that his combine performance has a lot of other people here liking him as well. I would be very happy if we got him.
