Re: 2013 Texans Draft Grades
My impressions are very close to Rmartin so I'm not going to go pick by pick to avoid a lot of repetition. But a couple of observations.
I'm a little worried about Montgomery but we'll see. Like someone else, I see a 4/3 end, but maybe he can convert. He has talent, so that's not a concern. Outside of that, I'm really liking the top end and middle of the draft.
In the later rounds, Mr. Q has a chance to be good in the ZBS, and I like his versatility. He has a chance to be a backup this year, worst case he goes to the PS. I think he at least is a good multi-position long term backup, but he has a chance to develop into a starter. But not sure where. But he was the best of the 6th rd.
The worst? Bonner is an F. And it's not because I've never heard of him. So what if he has good hands? He is from a tiny school, played against nobody, has below average measurables, etc. The reason I give it an F is even if he is better than I think in camp, he still has virtually no chance whatsoever of making the roster. Who could he possibly beat out? Best case is probably practice squad and that's probably pushing it. I want to see us draft guys that actually have a chance to make the roster. Wasted pick when better talent was available.
Overall, I'm a happy camper. I'm slightly less enthused than Rmartin. With my concerns about Montgomery, and the F of Bonner, I'll go B+. Having said that, I think they had an excellent draft and I'm pumped to see these guys in camp and the season.
