I havent got to looking yet but these are a few I know didn't get drafted, someone please correct me if they have been signed.

Josh Buhl SS - 5-11, - 205 - Kansas State (LB)
A Possible LB Switch to S. Josh Buhl has been a player I have watched for many years, he has a good stregnth and I think he has great potential to be a S in the NFL. Size is a concern when it comes to playing the LB spot of Buhl but I think a switch to S can correct everything.

Brandon Everage - FS - 6-0, - 194 - Oklahoma (S)
I haven't looked yet but Brandon Everage has to be signed. The Kid has some Off The Field issues a reason he didnt play in some of Oklahoma's big games, but he has great upside, and I think can be an elite saftey in the NFL given time.

Andrew Shull - DE - 6-5, - 265 - Kansas State
Last but not leats, Andrew Shull is the last player the pops into my head, as Buhl Shull has get upside potential. I have also watched Shull player throughout his career I think he is someone u can take a chance on sign him to the practice sqaud and give him a shot.

Well I don't know if any of those have been signed yet but those are 3 names that standout in my mind.

Default Renteria, I like this guy

I was digging around for something on these guys and found this on D.J. Renteria. It's quite possible that many of you have already seen it but for anyone who hasn't I thought it was a good read. Not tremendously informative but I don't think you can read it and not like the guy. I hope he makes it.

To start with Martin is down there twice. He'll be a blocking TE. The DT's from BYU and New Mexico play a 3 down linemen defense so that gives them a head start. Brad Lekkerkerker is a great pick up. He's huge. About like Seth Wand. A little stiff, needs to improve his lower body strenght. Starling is super fast, but has a Randy Moss mind set. He ran an average 4.39 forty on his pro day... in football cleats and on grass. He returns also and is probably coming in for that. He didn't have a great vertical jump and he needs to get stronger. The other OT is 6'6" 300 pounds and is supposed to be really good at pass blocking.

Still haven't see anything official from the Texans, but Ourlad's has the following college FA's on the depth chart:

Brad Lekkerkerker T Cal - Davis
Chavis Smith G Tennessee
Andrew Martin C Northern Colorado
Ryan Bachman T Kearney St
Tim Gale RB Northeastern

Because I care, here's Tim Gale's bio. Dude looks like a throwback from the leather helmet days.

Out of all the free agents, Casavan has the most potential. He had his redshirt pulled his true freshmen year, and only got to play two seasons at his natural position(DE). If he would have had a redshirt season, and would have had the oppurtunity to play DE his whole college career, he would have been first team all conference at least twice, IMO. He possesses really good spead for someone his size along with good strength

I remember reading that Renteria was sub-300 lbs. I am not sure NT would be his best place on our line.

NT's don't have to be big and fat to be effective. Seth Payne is barely 300 pounds himself.
