Default Re: Texans Meet With Prospect ______, 2012 Edition

Since badboy only posted the negatives the writer posted, here are his positives:

Quote:
Has a filled-out frame with good thickness packed on his body. Plays at full speed at all times with an active motor and determined quickness in pursuit. Possesses functional strength with powerful hands, working hard to shed at the point of attack and is at his best against the run -- downhill defender and physical tackler. Uses his eyes well to decipher and break down the play, showing good awareness and discipline to not be fooled by fakes. Takes accurate angles with good closing burst, showing the footwork to work well in tight areas. Tough and strong and has earned the reputation as a high effort player. Has some versatility with starting experience at both inside and outside linebacker in Cal's 3-4 defensive scheme. Was productive in his three years as a starter and was the team's most decorated player in 2011, earning Conference Defensive Player of the Year honors.
Is he a perfect prospect? No, but if he was he would be a first rounder, and not a late 2nd/early 3rd kind of guy.

He's 1 inch taller and 2 pounds heavier than Kendricks. Guess he's gonna have to play fullback too?

No man, your expectations are too low. If our draft doesn't go like this, then we need to fire Rick Smith!

1. Robert Griffin QB
2. Donta Hightower LB
3. Jerel Worthy DT
4a. Michael Floyd WR
4b. Brian Quick WR
5. Mitchell Schwartz OT
6. Shea McClellan OLB
7. Randy Bullock K

That's without trading up for better players too.

I know we cut Adibi, but he looked pretty good in the action that I saw last pre-season...I was kind of hoping we'd keep him...

But anyways, I mention that just to say that I don't think size is the determining factor in what will or won't keep him from being successful.

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.
I got Irvin going to us in the 2nd.

Good point but I don't see his size as a reason why he can't play 3-4 ILB. NaVorro Bowman gives his stamp of approval (143 tackles at 6-0 242).

I am going to make a prediction and say that Bruce Irvin, while a natural pass rusher, will slide because he is profoundly stupid. Getting arrested at a fast food sandwich shop A DAY AFTER HIS PRO DAY is just out of this world idiotic. It's like testing positive for weed at the combine. Plus the guy has other red flags. Damn shame because he is one hell of a pass rusher.

Lol, That's pretty good. I liked what I saw from Wagner at the Senior Bowl, but I didn't think much about him at the time because of Ryan's. I don't know much about Kendrick's other than he's a freaky good athlete

Quite a few teams have been showing interest in him...

Character concerns alone normally don't drop guys too far. Character concerns with less than impressive measureables tend to make guys drop.

Bruce Irvin was productive and he has top notch measureables.

I think someone is going to take a gamble on him and hope that he doesn't get into any trouble and can stay on the field.

There are a few teams that I have read that have shown interest in him and I think the Pats and Bills are or have brought him in for a visit.

Yeah, he has done some idiotic things, but for the most part he has been able to stay on the field and play.

Even if I don't have any input (yet) on certain player(s) doesn't mean that I haven't watch them. I just don't want to form a final opinion before I really study a player.

I see nothing wrong with drafting a guy like Worthy on the eye test.

Don't worry, people will come around once he starts blowing up offensive lines.


Last year I said Watt was perfect for this defense. This year Worthy is my guy! There is no other defensive player in this draft that fits this team better.

People were freaking out when we drafted Watt. I really believe Worthy can have the same kind of effect Watt had as a rookie. Some will say well he was inconsistent. I'm not worried about that at all. He was the only player on MSU's front seven that was any good, yet he was still able to dominate at times. He's got high football IQ, is a vocal leader and has an explosive first step. He is perfect for this defense.

Cody is a very serviceable but he does little in terms of creating problems for offensive lines. Put Worthy in between Watt and Smith and you now have 3 players that are capable of getting penetration against double teams on a regular basis. Think of all the problems that will create for offensive lines.

Yeah, if worthy is there I think I'd take him. I think he can be a dominant player on the NFL level. And I agree, I think he'd be special in our defense.

Glad to hear the Texans are meeting with my favorite sleeper pick.

If Brooks is there in the 2nd Rd he will be a steal

350 Lbs men who run 4.9 and BP 35 times dont grow on trees. Brooks is a monster and despite being a big guy has great movement skills. He would be a great fit in the ZBS.

Brooks can also play RT in addition to OG.

What round do y'all think we'd take him if he was to be there? I reckon I need to go research this Mr. Worthy.
