Early on in the mock process that year several draft sources had him going to the Texans @ #3. Elton Brown has far more upside, is bigger, stronger & more atheltic, the fact Gross helped the Panthers reach the Superbowl in his rookie year makes a strong case for the Texans using the #13 pick for an even better football player. IMO
I totally agree with you man, dont get me wrong. I like Elton a lot. His brother plays at Hampton U and you know how fond I am of the U haha (I pimp Jelani Clement's Please Houston Draft Jelani campaign every day)

I think Elton is a top 15 talent. Unfortunately, some of the scouts that I and others I know talk to don't feel the same way. Granted first rounder with steal value in the 32-40 range, but I'm sure with a good pro day, he'll be fine. For now, and things can change over night, but as of right now, he is losing stock
