Default Bowl game player review

I watched a lot more college ball recently as I think this draft may be our most important one yet for Texans. 2-3 more starters and some strengthening of other spots may have the effect of launching Texans to Super Bowl in 1-2 seasons. That's right maybe next season. Who out there really scares you? Pats? Nope they might get beat next Sunday. Colts? Their good but we can beat them. Anyway, my focus was on free safety, corner, left guard and power back.

1. Cameron Nelson FS Arizona 6'1" 202 lbs did not stand out to me. Had three significant plays but I lost focus on him quickly.
2. Colin Baxter LG/C Arizona 6'4" 295 lbs WOW! Never watch him before but quickly caught my eye. I was focusing on Suh who hit the right side of Arizona's line for two sacks but never saw him go against Baxter. This guard looked pretty darn good as Suh is not the only Dlineman to watch out for. Baxter stayed with his blocks often hitting the guy again if the QB did not get rid of the ball timely and became threatened again. One play Baxter blocked through his guy then raced down field. I forgot he was a lineman..he boogied. When he went to sideline he remained focused on the game. If there after round four, I'd grab him.
3. Charles Scott Rb LSU 5' 11" 234 4.60 didn't know he would be held out and could not see what the PR was all about. Almost 1200 yds 5.4 avg in 2008. Collar bone against ALabama in early November kept me from checking him out. Should be in Senior bowl with Anthony Dixon.
4. Patrick Peterson CB LSU 6'1" 205 I wrote "NOPE!" on my notes after watching this guy stink it up. In first quarte he was out of position and was faked out leading to a TD and another position his placement led to a first down. The announcers kept saying "He is a very good player.." and i kept saying "Well, he forgot to bring his skills to this one".

5. Haden Cb Florida Tebow who? This is the best player in Florida and started for 3 seasons including his freshman year. Having watched him before only led to my satisfaction in his performance against Cincinatti. If only he would drop..
6. Chad Jones SS LSU 6' 235 man this guy grabbed my attention. He was all over the field. I kept saying watch the corners and the FS but my eyes were not listening to my lips. Check his stats http://espn.go.com/ncf/player/profile?playerId=232416 If Pollard does not sign this beast should be on Texans radar. Hits like a LB should.
6.Patrick Robinson CB FSU 5' 11" 194 4.42 No interested in this one. He fell down in 1st quarter and then later was able to catch a guy from behind to stop a TD but just did not look good to me although I kept waiting. I read an article some time ago comparing him with Haden and the guy said he was a distant #2 and had stiff hips. I had been hoping he would go ahead of Earl THomas forcing the FS closer to us. HA!
7. Mike Ford RB 6' 225lbs I knew little of this guy but chose a good game to watch, 207 yards. What really is exciting is he did almost all of it in one half so fits in good with our team. The plan would be for him to produce the two quarters that the rest of the team decides to coast. http://scores.espn.go.com/ncf/recap?gameId=300022459

Dude was arrested for driving his moped on sidewalk after midnight without have his license with him. He has numerous traffic violations that may indicate maturity issue.http://blogs.tampabay.com/usf/2009/1...t-license.html
8. Jerome Murphy CB S.Florida 6'1" 185 4.48 on an earlier mock I had him in 3rd if Kyle Wilson was gone. Never watched this FS/KR but if I can get a CB by round three he may be my FS and back up corner in round 4. He was fun to watch against W. Illinois. He exhibited a good burst of speed to break up a long pass that was not his guy (I don't think). Involved in a bizarre play in that he recovered a fumble, ran with it and then fumbled it back. The very next play, he intercepts the QB. Good energy and did not get flustered on his fumble.
9. Perrish Cox This Oklahoma State CB was high on my interest list at perhaps round two. He was suspended from the bowl game fro violating team rules. Only thing I can find out is he missed a curfew. Good size and speed at 4.44.

I probably missed some one but hope you find this info interesting. Remember Boise STate plays TCU tonight on Fox at 7:15. Kyle Wilson is on my watch list.

Thanks for the thoughts. I have liked Charles Scott since last year, and have his valued pegged for the 3rd. Chad Jones plays baseball at LSU as well, but have not seen anything on his desire to play baseball in the Majors.

Scott's a tough runner who'll probably run a 4.65 and fall a bit , like Shonn Green . Jones could play safety for the Texans and pitch mid relief for the Astros .

If Walterfootball.com is correct with Gerhart to Houston in 3rd, I'll take that. Can you compare Scott to Anthony Dixon and/or Ryan Matthews from Fresno? I have not seen either of these three. I have seen Gerhart and he is awesome.

I'm not sure who your asking but Gerhart , Scott , and Dixon are 235+ . Matthwes is listed at 220 lbs and is faster shiftier .

Now my bias to SEC players will raise it's ugly head , meaning if all else is equal ... go with the SEC . My preference would probably be ( in order ) Matthews , Scott , Dixon , and Gerhart .

They learned that he wanted first-round money. I've heard numbers ranging from $800,000 to $2 million. Maybe the Astros were shocked by this. They shouldn't have been. Anyway, the Astros now seem content to let Chad Jones go play football at LSU. They have until August 15 to sign him, but football practice begins August 4. Once he's on the field, that probably will be that.

We may not need his skills but watch Jerry Hughes, DE for TCU. He is a local product (Sugar Land, TX) who played at my high school as a running back and hit beast mode as a DE at TCU.

I prefer a heavier back. Does this guy run strong through the tacklers or is he more of hit the seam and go?

Mathews is the real deal. Doesn't have the power of Gerhart but is at least adequate in that area. He can fly too and he always hits the hole hard.

Haven't got around to watch all the tapes, but these three guys were on my radar since last year. Baring injuries or off-the-court issues, I think they all have a future in the NFL.

Jones was drafted by the Astros, I think.

7. Mike Ford RB 6' 225lbs I knew little of this guy but chose a good game to watch, 207 yards. What really is exciting is he did almost all of it in one half so fits in good with our team. The plan would be for him to produce the two quarters that the rest of the team decides to coast. http://scores.espn.go.com/ncf/recap?gameId=300022459

Dude was arrested for driving his moped on sidewalk after midnight without have his license with him. He has numerous traffic violations that may indicate maturity issue.http://blogs.tampabay.com/usf/2009/1...t-license.html
8. Jerome Murphy CB S.Florida 6'1" 185 4.48 on an earlier mock I had him in 3rd if Kyle Wilson was gone. Never watched this FS/KR but if I can get a CB by round three he may be my FS and back up corner in round 4. He was fun to watch against W. Illinois. He exhibited a good burst of speed to break up a long pass that was not his guy (I don't think). Involved in a bizarre play in that he recovered a fumble, ran with it and then fumbled it back. The very next play, he intercepts the QB. Good energy and did not get flustered on his fumble.
9. Perrish Cox This Oklahoma State CB was high on my interest list at perhaps round two. He was suspended from the bowl game fro violating team rules. Only thing I can find out is he missed a curfew. Good size and speed at 4.44.

I probably missed some one but hope you find this info interesting. Remember Boise STate plays TCU tonight on Fox at 7:15. Kyle Wilson is on my watch list.
Steve
Jones was impressive but is he coming out?

Kyle Wilson will be nothing more than a nickel corner in the NFL. He is a great athlete but he won't be able to tackle at the next level. That arm tackle crap isn't gonna work.

Brandyn Thompson caught my eye but he is a big time risk taker. He got the pick six but he also got beat deep on the double move for the TD.

Doug Martin also caught my eye on Boise St. He is the RB, only a soph. He didn't have a great game but he got the tough yards against a tough defense.

For TCU, S Alex Ibiloye looked good. He is undersized for a safety though. He could make a roster as a special teams guy. Could maybe be your sixth DB in a dime set.

LB Daryl Washington is a good tackler and plays well against the run. The TEs abused him in the passing game though.

DE Jerry Hughes looks like a one trick pony to me. Gonna have to be a 34 OLB I think. Great athleticism though.

Jeremy Kerley, a junior, has a future in the NFL as a return specialist. I can pretty much guarantee it.

I did watch him last night and I agree with your assessment. He is not a beast he is a VERY FAST BEAST. Seemed to be very strong also. If he was around in 6th or 7th, I could see picking him up. Don't know his draft status.

Sure was a lot of fumbling the last two weekends in NFL. It is easy to say "hold on to the ball" yet some of those fumbles we see yearly; many would be dropped. It is the fumble where guy is holding with one hand or not pulled into the body you are probably refering to.

Nothing firm either way to my knowledge but a concern would be acceleration and good hips to cover. SImilar to Pollard in running forward to hit and tackle but not as good in coverage. In right system should do very well.
