Default Safety

If wade phillips is here and we're going to play 30-40 3 safety sets per game maybe its time to invest in another safety. Demps is marginal at best. 2-4th round maybe?

I've definitely said as much. I proposed Eric Reid in the 1st, I think he'd fit right in and boost the 2ndary.

Quin is a free agent, as much as I like him, he is limited. If Texans spend a first expect him to have walked. I prefer Texas SS Kenny Vaccaro.

Read some good things out of the Shrine Game Practices about Cooper Taylor (Richmond and Ga Tech), 6'4 228 lbs with good speed for his size and Zeke Motta (sp?) from Notre Dame.

Where do you guys think they will get drafted?

Think I'm gonna watch the game tonight.

Ive been thinking about that a bit myself. I think you keep Quin and invest a high pick on the position. I said in another thread that in Wades defense that 3rd safety is very important .... Looks like Im not the only one who believes that to be the case.


I dont have any particular players targeted at the position yet .... but in my next round of evaluations , the S spot will be one of the top priorities.

Swearinger is who I'd target. I love his game actually more than some of the tip safety prospects.

He's a better player than vaccaro IMO. Not really close.

I've watched a few of his games. He looks pretty good; but he's a problem child off the field though.

I like to watch more of him and Amerson (and others).

But I do think Rambo is a good player.

Amerson, I'm stil trying to figure out if he can make the conversion to safety.
He probably can, but it's still early.

There's time to look at all of them deeper.

Bradie James can kick rocks, but I don't think it's the end if the world if he's brought back as depth and has to earn a roster spot.

Similar for Walter...have no issue with him on the team as a niche player. Walter should mainly be used in the slot or as a flanker or wing used to block and make short possession type catches.

Just long as they accept a pay cut, Texans cannot continue to overpay mediocrity.

James was paid the vet minimum last season ..... $825k.

Add another name to the list, Jonathan Cyprien from little known Florida Intl'.

There are 3 games out there on youtube: Louisville, W. Kent, and FAU.

He showed well during the Senior Bowl week and is currently rated by CBS Sports to be a mid round prospect.

I have a couple more games I think I will try to watch.

Look to have good range and flex hips; I think he has potential.

Cyprien is flying up draft boards. Probably a late 2nd-early 3rd prospect at this point.

Yep he can cover the TE or slot and is fearless against the run. Everybody is talking Cyprien up (Rightfully so) but Williams was the best S on the field during the Sr.Bowl. He'exactly what the Texans need to replace Demps/Keo.

Default Re: Safety

Some folks on here have talked about finding a tall Safety with speed to cover the tall athletic TE's in the league. What would yall think of Tharold Simon-CB from LSU, and move him to Safety? He's listed as 6'02 and 193 lbs. with 4.54 projected speed. I don't know much about him but from the film I've seen he's fairly good at coverage with good athleticism. Also we need a Safety with coverage skills, not a old school thumper.
