Randle and many other prospects faced their potential employers at the combine. The former LSU Tiger met with the Texans and liked his meeting with Gary Kubiak and his staff.

“They’re just looking for a playmaker and I told them I can be that guy if they want me to be,” Randle said. “It was a pretty good conversation with Coach (Gary Kubiak)’s staff and the GM, a lot of good things were said.”

As mentioned in the first post, Texans interested in Old Dominion DT Ronnie Cameron.

The Texans attended his pro day.

The Texans tend to have visits with players that likely won't be drafted in hopes of signing them when they become UDFAs.

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...-and-workouts/

from another thread but need to highlighted here also.

. In 2011, twelve of the top-14 picks either worked out for or visited their team before the draft. The only players who did not work out for or visit the team they were picked by were Texans defensive end J.J. Watt and Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Jags G.M. Gene Smith did personally attend Gabbert’s Insight Bowl game against Iowa, however, and the Texans don’t use pre-draft visits on first-round prospects. Which brings us to our next discovery.

2. Some teams don’t use any pre-draft visits on elite prospects. The Texans, Bears, Jaguars, and Packers concern themselves almost strictly with late-round, undrafted types when scheduling visits. For example, the player drafted earliest with whom we know Green Bay formally visited was Markell Carter, the 194th overall pick. The Raiders and Colts, for the most part, also fall into this category.

And either the Houston media is not at all concerned with reporting pre-draft visits and workouts, or the Texans just don’t have many of them. (Our guess is the former.) We counted a league-low six Texans pre-draft visits, and each team is allowed up to 30.

Appearantly we got visits scheduled with LSU CB Ron Brooks and Texas A&M CB Lionel Smith.

I'm excited about Ron Brooks. He can really play some special teams too and creates alot of turnovers with his tackling (that's right...not just hits but text book tackling).

Looks like we are trying to improve the CB depth. Competition for the back end.

Good find on Ron Brooks. He looks like he could be a special teams standout. A really good gunner.

If we select a corner before 6th I will actually scream. We either go with CBs we have or someone needs to step up and say we screwed up with Harris and Carmichael or we don't have coaches in place to develop players. Then someone needs to be fired.

More corners db's play than any other position in football.

They are absolutely vital to success in today's NFL.

I have 0 issue with the texans taking a corner in the draft.

We have 6 corners on roster now. How about working with that and fill some other spots? Yeah, I do have a bit of rancor concerning that spot.

You are expecting a late round draft pick to come in and contribute?

I really don't care what position the guy plays. If they think they can find a good player in the late rounds, pick him.

Rick smith has consistently said he is going to take a corner in the draft every year. so far that's the one promise I know that he has kept.

This is one player that could have potential at either safety spots and corner.

http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/...litz-2109.html

West Virginia’s Bruce Irvin may be heating up in the draft to the point he could creep into the first round. He is scheduled to take 12 visits to NFL teams. He is appealing both the 3-4 teams as an outside linebacker and 4-3 teams as a defensive end. Among the teams he is visiting are the Bears, Browns, Chiefs, Dolphins, Forty Niners, Jets, Panthers, Patriots, Texans and Titans. Part of the reason so many want to see him is coaches want to put him on the board and watch tape with him, and have a chance to see what makes him tick.
