Re: Texans 2013 NFL Draft, Round 1
Hopkins reminds him on Andre...Quiet confident, knows what he wants.
Thought Hopkins was the best player on the board. Wanted Hopkins all a long. Held their breath for 3 weeks hoping the board would fall like it did.
Training camp before Newton is healthy.
Montgomery is an OLB. Reed is still an OLB, but from his tone a move to ILB is still a possibility.
Really liked Quessenberry...surprised he fell so far. Saw he was still on board and went up to get him.
Loves the way the late round WR Bonner comes out of his breaks and loves his ball skills. Says "the ground moves when he makes his breaks". Really caught his eye at the combine. You can tell this was a Kubiak pick with the way he gushes over him and he basically said that he first noticed his skills watching the WR's during the combine...
Thinks The Bowling Green DT Jones can play DE and NT.
Likes the TE...thinks he can get bigger. Likes his big body and thinks he can help take some wear and tear off of OD.
Big conversation about taking a RB during the draft. Had guys targeted but they went earlier than expected. But they feel confident in the Free Agent RB class that one can step up and be the third back.
