The plus side is I'm really liking all of the others top to bottom, and I think we may have multiple gems in the 6th rd.
Trevardo might not turn into a great LB but he should be good on ST.

Camp Confidential: Monday (7-29)
WILL GRUBB / PAUL GALLANT, Sports Radio 610
July 29, 2013 12:13 PM

Houston (CBS Houston) – Editor’s Note: Camp Confidential will feature daily news and notes throughout Texans training camp. Make sure to check back for updates following the afternoon practice.

The Texans wrapped up a busy morning session at Methodist Training Complex. Here is everything you need to know:

>>>Former Broncos inside linebacker Joe Mays is in Houston for a tryout. If all goes well the Texans have strong interest in signing the 28-year-old.

“He’s out there… he’s free… and we’ve got some things going on with our team that we think he might be interested in.” said Kubiak.

>>> Daryl Sharpton received an injection in his groin yesterday. He expects to be back in a couple of days.

>>>Wade Smith returned to practice after missing both Sunday sessions with an illness.

>>>DeAndre Hopkins continues to impress making a couple nice catches this morning. It’s hard to understate his role in the offense.

“He’s getting a ton of reps, a ton of opportunities in both the run and the pass.” said Matt Schaub. “We’re going to get him the football and we’re going to give him a chance to make plays with it in his hands… and he’s going to do that.”

>>>OLB Whitney Mercilus tweaked his hamstring but it didn’t appear to be serious. If Mercilus misses a practice or two it could potentially be a big opportunity for young linebackers Trevardo Williams, Sam Montgomery, and Willie Jefferson . Williams struggled to get off blocks when rushing the passer this morning and Montgomery is still sidelined with a high-ankle sprain.

>>>Speaking of Willie Jefferson, he’s had a near perfect camp so far… even stealing some first team reps . At 6’5, 233 his size clearly stands out and his outside quickness is impressive.

Yes, it was a joke.

Although, the real joke is his ability to stay on the field. Still not sure why we continue to carry this dude.

Bennie Sharpton needs to be on a slow boat to the Rev Al's palatial estate. Maybe his Uncle will help him join the family business - organized crime...er I mean community organizing.

He looks "thicker" than 6'5" 233lbs..... that's good. Definitely not as lanky as those numbers would indicate.

Joe Mays worked out after morning practice and was signed. Texans need ILB depth.

We'll just have to wait and see.
Kubiak agreed that it was an ankle sprain, but indicate that he could be back in a few days. I think I'd read that as "many days", but hopefully, not "many weeks".

His build is similar to Jason Taylor who was listed as 6'6" and 244lbs. Taylor was very productive from OLB at that size.
