Lemon was a good college receiver, but I think he's a long shot to play in the NFL.

Could happen. We will see come OTAs/TC/PS though. There is a lot of time before the regular season begins.

I forgot to add- in the event of a player being placed on IR, that player will be worth the PS value

Not sure how many Texans fans are familiar with him.
We aren't terribly familiar with Lemon, so thanks for the links. What are your opinions on the guy?

I have some bias, but he has a great shot at doing well in the NFL, despite 76Texans thoughts. He has great hands, makes his living in the middle of the field. He won't be a "premier" receiver based on his speed, but if he stays healthy he could have a long productive career, quietly putting up numbers. Hope he sticks with the Texans - he could be a very productive 3rd receiver for years to come - but it's the NFL, never know how the business pans out...

A J Bouye impressed me a whole lot.
Play much faster than his speed indicates.
Solid all around CB.
Honestly, I think this guy should have been drafted.
He can play.

I think I put him ahead of all the UDFA CBs now.
This guy has a good chance to stick.
I might even like him better than Carmichael.

Lemon is just another guy why I think this class is so deep.
There are quite a few UDFA receivers who intrigued me.
28 guys were drafted, but I think you can make a case for another dozen or so.
It's impossible to project them, and I've been concentrating on receivers the last 3 years.
After all, they are young, some may flatten out, some continue to develop.
There are so many football programs out there now; more guys are playing the game than ever.
A late bloomer can fall through the crack.

Tuggle is another guy who intrigues me.
It looks like he played at a lighter weight in college, and he was darn fast under 230.
At one of the All-Star game, he weighed in over 240, I think.
He still made some play, but he wasn't as fast as I think that would make him an NFL player.

We'll see if he can get use to playing with more bulk, but this guy shouldn't be written off.

So, we should have the final roster on Saturday, right?

When do the teams start signing players to their PS?
Sunday?
Monday?

So, I was thinking for players that the Texans cut that get picked up by other teams, we count them as equivalent to being a PS player for the Texans. Sound fair to everyone?

Right now I'm looking at getting 10-12 points; I think Tuggle makes the 53 and EZ or Davis get on the P/S.

...hey, how many points are awarded if one of our picks is snagged by another team while trying to go thru waivers??

Right now I have you at 14 points; 10 for Tuggle making the 53, and 4 for Davis, who was cut by the Texans but picked up by the Patriots.

Davis is an example of how I have decided to deal with players cut by the Texans but placed on the 53 of another team- you are awarded the PS points for the player, as he was indeed cut by the Texans. But since another team thought highly enough to place him on the 53, then we can make the educated guess that he would have landed on the Texans' PS.

Ja'Gared Davis wasn't placed on the Patriots 53. He was waived today.

Don't know if anyone saw this but after we cut George Winn, he was picked up by the Patriots.

I've looked over some of the cuts but I haven't seen him cut, yet.

Wildcard, if healthy Marlon Brown takes Jeans spot on the roster. However I think Brown starts out on injured reserve.
Looks like I got Wood and Tuggle right.

I thought Johnson would make it over Wood due to his ST's value. But Johnson's fumbling problem combined with Wood clearly being being the better RB doomed Johnson.

I kinda figured one of the FA RB's would replace Forsett on the cheap. Looks like Wood could be a keeper in the Alfred Morris kinda way.
