schaub = avg
B.Reed = Avg
Mitchell = Below Avg, hopefully he improves this yr.
Brooks = has greatest chance for improvement
Cushing/Sharpton = Incomplete, Coming back from injury nobody knows how they will perform.

Greatest chance to provide help of players not listed Quessenberry/Swearinger.

The Texans team as a whole better hope Schab and Mitchell stay healthy. The Texans have put all their eggs in the Mitchell basket and there's not much behind him. plus I just dont think he's that good based off of the last few yrs performances. Hopefully he will get better.

Not sure I agree with Sharpton being Poor. Unless they are counting injury histories with actual playing abilities.

How dumb. PFF are the same guys that said Chris Myers is one of the best Centers in the game (I swear I read that directly from them). Maybe I'm remembering wrong, but I swear it was PFF.

And obviously Foster is elite.

Doesnt necessarily mean they think Myers is a blue chip. Not many of those to go around, and had Myers behind Unger, Mangold, and Sullivan in 12 rankings, who got the blue chip ratings for centers.

Makes sense. I hear what you're saying. 1 thing though is I'm pretty sure they have Myers ahead of Mangold, which is surprising to me they would give him blue chip and not Myers.

Gotta disagree. Where did you come up with this in fact? I can't find anything that really backs that claim, this is the closest I can find, but in the end it still praises him:

"The first thing you notice about Chris Myers (6'4", 290 pounds, eight seasons) is his agility. As one of the best moving centers in the entire NFL, Myers is excellent at sliding inside the line to pick up blitzes and help guards in pass protection. When put into a one-on-one situation, he can lose anchor and get walked back, but he is smart enough to go to the ground and cut the defender if that happens. Myers does a great job coming out to meet pass-rushers, and with his quick feet and strong hands, he’s able to mirror and protect the pocket.

Myers isn’t the biggest guy at 290 pounds, but he makes up for that with excellent quickness and vision."

Watt, Cushing, Joseph, Andre, Brown, and Foster are all "blue chips" to me, don't know what the hell they're thinking.

These graphics really show how recent/coveted draft picks have performed so far, which is very interesting to me.

Foster - Considered elite by pretty much everyone...except these guys.

Mercilus - Need an 'incomplete' option. You'll never know how good he is/isn't until he's an everyday 3-down defender.

Cushing - Elite, but I'll give them benefit of the doubt coming off injury.

Schaub - I'd go so far as to say he's high-quality, but not elite.

Reed- Average, not really below, unless (like Cushing) they're counting injury in the equation.

I'm also not sure I'd rate either our RT or RG as anything more than Below Average.
