Thus, the big nasty run stuffers (like Williams) will not be high on his list. Just a gut feeling. Now, a guy you might be interested in is Missouri Southern State's Brandon Williams. I am still trying to find more tape on the guy, but in the limited viewings I have had he is the spitting image of BJ Raji. At this point I have him tentatively ranked where the Texans can grab him in the 4th, and indeed, in my MIP (mock in progress), we do grab him.
PRETTY SOLID TAKE, BRO. Still looking for a Wade Phillips nose, although we thought Martin fit that bill last year & Texans passed.

ONCE AGAIN YOU NAILED IT. Barwin is a foundation piece for Wade Phillips, 3-4 strong side OLB. His production will come as QB's run away from SWATT.

Folks this usually goes on behind close doors but notice how agreement is reached by consensus. I did not include DaRick Rodgers because of off field issues, however he is a talent not to be denied. Question would Texans take chance on a guy with his track record? maybe 2nd then I'm on board he needs a little humility to bring his work ethic in line with this teams doctrine.

Excellent work as usual 65
