Default NFL Combine

The OL and TE measurements are in.

Man, some of these TEs are just big and long.
I haven't watched them all yet, but Fauria and Toilolo are definitely sleepers.
They will probably climb up the boards soon.

Barkley is unimpressive in interview to me. I have big concerns about his shoulder after the way he answered those questions. (Too much CourtTV)

I wouldn't touch him.

Funny, there's an O-Lineman with a 30" arm length.

QB Mike Glennon is 6'7".

Default Re: NFL Combine

I actually think it's best to trade away our first rounder for future draft choice; draft a receiver in the second or take a flyer with a guy like Marcus Davis later on. There are 3 guys in the next draft that I think highly of: Marquise Lee USC, Sammy Watkins Clemson, and the big dude from Rutgers that I forgot the name (he's at least 6'5 and is pretty fast and quick for that size.)

That is unless we don't have to sell out the farm to get Patterson or Allen.

~24% of all Combine participants this year are from the SEC.

Terron Armstead 6'5" 306 lbs ran an unofficial 4.65 40 yard dash --- fastest ever for an O-Lineman.

How fast is 4.65???

2012 -- Juron Criner, Jeff Fuller, Darius Hanks, Jerrell Jackson, Gerell Robinson all ran in the 4.6s
... and they're all Wide Receivers!

Disagree. This is one of the deepest drafts in years at many positions. I'd be stocking up on players.

We have too many weaknesses to put off until next year. I am ok with trade down from #27 into high second.

No one trades a 1st for just a future 1st. That makes zero sense. What does happen is that a team will trade their 1st for a current 2nd and a future 1st. Or trade a current 2nd outright for a future 1st. I don't think the Texans will do either, but you see trades like this pretty often.

I really wonder how they feel about Newt as the long-term answer at RT ?
If they have reservations, I think we could actually see them using their top pick for a Lane Johnson IF he was still on their Board at 27 ?

It's because that this draft is deep from the 2nd round on that I think it makes sense to trade our first. If we can get a 2nd and a future first, I'm all for it.

That way we can package our two firsts next year to move up to get a replacement for AJ; otherwise, we will never in a position to get a marquis player.

There are a ton of Oline guys running sub 5 second 40's. This is definitely a good group of prospects, even in the mid to late rounds.

Looks like my dark horse is no longer in obscurity.

I think the Texans will draft an OT and let Newton be the swing tackle.

The TE Vance McDonald had great form through out the bench press. Looks like an intriguing prospect.

Looks like people doubt his blocking though.

I know how I feel about Newton. He's not the long term (or short term) answer at RT. I do think he can be a decent guard, however.

Watching 300 pounders run sub 5 second 40s is pretty impressive at one level, but practically speaking it's about the 23rd or maybe 31st most important thing that the coachs look at when it comes to evaluating a prospect to becoming an NFL offensive lineman.

Another guy to watch is the small TE from Arkansas, Chris Gragg.
He ran a 4'44 forty. He originally played WR but doesn't have the lateral agility.
With a 6th or a 7th pick, he can be used in lieu of Walter in the blocking department while can still threaten deep.

Injury is hurting his stock, so I think he could be a steal in the late rounds.

Another dark horse of mine is the OT Rogers Gaines from Tenn St.
Huge guy with long arms (6'6-330 something, nearly 37" arm).
He's a project (but did not give up any sack in his Sr. season).
I think we can afford a 6th or 7th on him.
