Which is why Robinson makes most sense, solidify RT with all pro, who moves to LT when ready and or Duane Brown Contract expired, then repeat process. In between with competent coaching & evaluation Texans will find a QB, they just cannot afford to leave him unprotected.

Doesn't look like that much of a change to me. Just a few pounds heavier. Most guys his age don't need to take PEDs to add a few pounds. They just need some food and some sleep.

True story by the way.

Depending on his 40 time and 10 yd. split, and his cone times, he might be a great prospect at OLB for us but he's going to really have to sell it in the interviews because of his lack of motivation. When a player tries to get out of an entire season months before the season began to protect his future NFL value, that sets off major red flags.

Thought of the Day...
Quote:
Dutch speedskating coach Jillert Anema gave an amazing interview to CNBC today featuring one of the best rants ever...

You have a lot of attention on a foolish sport like American football and you waste a lot of talent, athletic talent, on a sport that is meant to kill each other, to injure each other. Ö Youíre so narrow-minded, and then you want to compete against the world [in other sports] when you waste a lot of time, good talent on a sport that sucks.

You canít stand losing, you must be an American, man!
and:

Youíre just envious, man, for our medals!

I thought that was an anemic rant.

They were telling the Matt Millen story when he was coming out. Says they ran 2 40s all year -- spring & fall. They benched for coaches who came in for a visit. So a coach visited Happy Valley and asked Millen to bench... Millen asked him what the record was, he said "40" reps... Millen pressed out 49 reps then got up and said, "You got a new record" and walked away.

I love this TE class. Jenkins, Nicklas, C.J. Fiedorowicz and Lyerla all look good. I can see one of them on the roster next year and a later round guy no one expects. There are a lot of later round guys with talent. Don't see why people are saying this is a thin TE class

Niklas isn't as similar to Gronk as this article makes out but he is the closest thing in this draft. Everyone wants the next Gronk but you have to understand that Gronk is to TE what Luck was to QB, he is a rare specimen for the position. I had him graded as a top 15 talent but he fell, understandably so, because he was coming off a serious back injury.

I've been behind on Niklas because he declared so late and nobody was expecting it. The more I see of him the more I like him. If he moves well at the combine he is a 1st round pick, IMO.

I don't think we draft two TEs, but I really hope we grab one of them. There is a lot of TE talent this year, that's for sure. I would wager that the next really productive TE (like Gronk is without the injuries, or Gates, or the Saints' TE) comes out of this class.
