Hamilton will do as a number 2. There are plenty of choices, though.

First weigh-in I've read so far:

Are the Texans bottom fishing? Where are these guys expected to go in the draft?

Lane Johnson could be a first rounder. He's quick, fast, and strong.
I would love to have him as our RT.

He might not last to our pick though.

Hamilton is better than Posey and with the depth in this class, he might last until our second pick.

I like the TE Eifert; if he's there at 27, he should be a consideration; not sure it's a position that we can afford to draft that high though.

Both Woods and Williams have a great chance to be a good number 2 like Hamilton. I have a hard time choosing between many of these guys... But a guy like Hunter has a higher ceiling due to his measurable.

I like Williams, of course, but I'm not big on USC pass catchers. It just seems they have all been more hype then anything once they get to the NFL dating back to Keyshawn Johnson. Hamiltion could be a good option later in the draft as he seems to be projected as a possible 3rd rounder.

I don't understand the Eifert interview. Maybe they are just going thru the motions & interviewing certain players despite it not necessarily being a need position. Eifert doesn't even fit what the Texans need at that position & it seems to be noted as he stated he tried to show the Texans he could block. They need a blocking TE that can catch, not a TE known for primarily catching w/ suspect speed.

He would be tough to pass on if he makes it to the 27th, but I watched him at the Senior Bowl during the week of practice (one-on-ones), and he was impressive, very athletic.

Lane is likely first rounder. With LJ looking like a strong candidiate for #1 overall and Eric Fisher looking like a top 10, Lane could be top 15/top 20. Athletic, multi year starter for Oklahoma on the blindside.

Hamilton looks like a solid #2 WR. Good size, speed, and hands. Not excellent, but would be an upgrade over everyone on the roster not named Andre Johnson. Likely a 2nd round draft pick(mid to late second.)

The Texans have always interviewed late round guys a lot more than early guys. Go look at past years, the majority of their interviewees are 3-7th round picks and UDFAs.

In years past we've always interviewed late round or UDFA prospects almost exclusively, I think for fear of tipping our hand as to what direction we're going in the draft. This year seems to be different. Going from this list there seems to be alot of early round prospects and WR that we're talking to.

Read this and chill!

Most teams have seven draft picks. That's what the Texans have, as of now. Even if they use a 15-minute interview on every guy they wind up drafting, they will have talked to 53 others they don’t draft.

To me this was done to show and to ramp up intrest in Te'o at the end of round 1 for a possible trade down. (Ex. #32 Baltimore may want to move up to get Te'o if the covet him to replace Ray Lewis)

If we show interest in a player, no one is going to ask us if we want to trade with them so they can have that player. Showing interest at a position of need might entice Baltimore to trade ahead of us to take that player.

The only thing we get out of showing interest, is that another player at a position of need might fall to us.

Let's say we really want a WR, but we are successful in letting the league think we really want an ILB, Teo, Minter, & the other one. If we're lucky, all three would be gone by the time we pick & two of the three WRs we're looking at falls to us. Or NT, if you wish.

Default Re: HOU combine Interviews

Teo wouldn't be a bad pick at 27.
