The more I see the more I like him. Maturity as well as QB skills rapidly improving, hence higher draft grade than currently projected.

One trick pony yes, but the kind of one trick pony we need. Different level of talent than Trevardo who I projected for Texans last year but not until end of 4th. This is an upper level 2nd. that transfers directly to playing time.

your right on here, but Texans like physical corners which I wouldn't mind if they could also make some plays on the ball. So gives you similar results for millions less, think we all would take that going forward.

Need someone else to fire up this defense, they seem like the fight has been taken out of them, notice I added two Samoan players with attitude.

tracking along the same lines.

Again, we really need to find a kick/punt retuner. adding someone who could also add reps coming out of the backfield as I'm sure Tate is gone a plus.

agreed again. projected Chris in 7th to Texans last year, real sorry to see him go too!
