Default Re: Why is Derek Newton Still a Texan?

maybe a change in coaching & scheme helps him out plus being fully healthy & three years NFL experience for a 7th rd. draft pick he could actually become a decent starting RT. Personally I hope he does, good for him, good for Texans & we don't have to upgrade position high in this years draft. Did I mention he is cheap?

Apparently for no reason...

The NFL pushed the draft back this year because Radio City Music Hall was booked up with "Heart and Lights," a spring show featuring the Rockettes slated to run from March 27 through May 4.

The production was scrapped just a week before the curtain was to rise. Producers told the Rockettes "additional work is needed" before the show was ready to be seen by audiences.

So 256 college football players will still have their names called at the NFL draft, but on May 8-10 instead of later this month.
But cheer up laddy...... the NBA play-offs are about to start & ComCast ain't got no say in that.

Goodell said the change was needed next year because the venue, Radio City Music Hall, will host an Easter show in April. So much for rumors.

"We're actually getting bumped by the Easter Bunny. They're going to have an Easter show. We'll be prepared for that," NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in 2013 on "The Rich Eisen Podcast."

I'm not surprised. He had too many negative factors for the most part out of his control, to be fairly evaluated.

I like Newton's ability...

I think that injury last year and some technique issues really plagued him.

But the guy has the ability and physical traits to be a good RT in the league.

You clearly show that you either did not know about his injuries or just chose to ignore them. I am not saying he would have been great if healthy but would have been serviceable while he continued to learn. Also who lined up next to him at OG was nothing to write home about. Brooks did better as 2012 wore on but he was in Kubiak's dog house for reporting as a circus tent rather than a football player. Remember Mike Brisiel left after 2011 the year Newton was drafted (7th round) and was replaced at RG by a fat Brandon Brooks in 2012. Brooks could not beat out Ben Jones (college center) & who started most games. Brooks missed games due to toe injury 2013 but played at about 335. He is now about 325. He goes down and DB gains 20.

A slimmer Brooks will also benefit a slimmer Newton in his second full season as a starter. A stronger Brown and X now at LG should give us a much better Oline. Arian Foster says Namaste

Pretty sure. O'Brien mentioned that Ben Jones has been taking the reps at LG.

I think the reason we saw Brooks at LG in OTA's was that Sua'Filo is still in school. I fully expect B. Brooks back at RG come training camp.

Did Su'a-Filo miss all the OTA's? Will he be there for Mini Camp this week?

I can't imagine being in school this long unless he's taking a summer semester, which, to me, would be pretty foolish on his part.

There are several schools, UCLA and Stanford at least, who graduate their classes very late. Because of the NFL rules, they can't attend the OTAs. I think they can attend the rookie mini-camp but I'm not sure.

But it's my understanding that he should be here for Mini-Camp.

Was he there during ota's? I know he was there at some point.

I don't understand why they'd put him there if they intended to play x at lg and brooks at right...

I thought brooks was at lg sometime before the draft. I never saw anything else about where they were lining up.

If he was at lg after x was drafted, then I think they are at least considering him for lg. Oline is a position group where you king of want to get your starters locked in. Don't wanna be moving guys all over. Unit continuity with the OL is probably more important than any other position group.
