Watching the #Texans DBs work in group together is fun to see. There is constant competition and Vance Joseph is a non stop worker.
Ninja also added "J.J. just gave them to me, I didn't have to do anything for them." #Texans
Talked to Ninja about wearing the MegaWatts[shoes] yesterday to practice, he said "J.J. knew I better have been the first one to get them."

Scheme plays a big part in draft boards, just interesting to see what other teams have as grades for players. #Texans
Hopkins (2nd) Swearinger (3rd) Brennan Williams (5th) Trevardo Williams (7th) David Quessenberry (7th) Other picks were not on board.
According to the leaked Cowboys draft board they had the following round grades on the #Texans draft picks.

Smith's contract poses a cap problem as it stands right now. Will blog some more in a second.
Antonio Smith said he's told #Texans he wants to spend the rest of his career in Houston. Said team told him they're open to an extension.
James Palmer @JPalmerCSN
J.J. Watt says the biggest growth he's seen in Earl Mitchell is his confidence.
Gary Kubiak says that next week will be a lot of work in the Redzone and situational teaching.
