Well.

Imagine the New England offense without Tom Brady and I think we have a starting spot.

Slot guys come in many forms, but all that matters is what form OB wants.

Lemon at Syracuse was used both as a slot and wide receiver. He really doesn't have speed. But due to his superior route running, he was virtually unstoppable as a slot. I see him as big slot/possession version of Wes Welker.

Even though at first the Texans put him on IR for an "unnamed injury," the "unnamed injury" ends up being a right hamstring tear. He's had plenty of time to recover/rehab and hopefully it does not become a recurrent problem.

The late draft pick a bonner also seems like stereotypical slot.

Yes. I hope he doesn't go overlooked in this process. OB's comments may have been limited to those with game tape, i.e. Keyshawn ain't it.

Don't forget his hands. Unlike Martin that kid, Lemon, doesn't drop many. Doesn't have alligator arms and he can take a hit with his size. Average 40 time a 4.56, although his best unofficial 40 time was 4.49 (for what it's worth). I've always liked him and he tore it up last preseason.

Still, you're right, he's not a burner, and I suspect the Texans are going to draft one come May.

That's why I included "possession" in his description.

I didn't get that from what Andre said at all. I thought he said teh Achilles was still a concern for Posey last season, but that's behind him now, he won't be slowed down by thinking about his Achilles in 2014.

Lots and lots of Bonner plays: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TeT7i7A5G_E

Looks like much more of a football player than Keyshawn Martin, whom I don't think should make the team...And at best is a bottom depth chart wr.

I think with Andre, DeAndre, & Watkins they'll each switch in & out of that slot position & really fck up some DBs.

Those three can be really, really good at all three positions.

Kinda my thinking. AJ has always done well out of the slot, tho you don't want to leave him there all the time. With a running game like Foster will hopefully deliver would be a nightmare for defenses with those 3 at WR. Add in a quality TE or two, BOOM!

Of course that is predicated on having a QB that can get them the ball

That's what I've been saying. I doubt they'll go in that direction but... man... I think that would be awesome.

At first, Fitzpatrick. Next year, who knows. But that trio could make a decent QB look pretty good.
