So we're holding Bullock to the Keenum standard?

I would be surprised if Keo doesn't make the team.

He only played fewer snaps.than JJo and Kareem last year.

Interesting:
1. No Martin in the WR group.
2. 4 tight ends to help with blocking.
3. 5 safeties.

The Safety and WR group I guess will come down to special teams work.

Default Re: Early Texans 53-man roster projection

I think Ankrah make the team and possibly CB Williams.

DJ Johnson could make the team as a 3rd down guy.

An OT could be added at 53 man cut from another team.

Great list.

Bullock has already made the turn. Why wait on the new guy to learn the same lesson?

Default Re: Early Texans 53-man roster projection

I could see as many as 5 players not currently on the team be on the opening day roster. The combination of the Texans waiver wire priority and weak back end of the roster should lead to a lot of turnover after the last round of cuts are announced.

I think Tarpinian makes it and am pretty sure EZ make the team. EZ has been lighting up TC. Harris may get cut and replaced by a WW CB claim.

Bester and Labhart on PS, although I would rather see Labhart on the final 53 over Martin. I'm tired of seeing Martin shy away from contact when the big boys come out to play.

I like Tarpinian but I think the Dent acquisition takes him out. A rebuilding team is going to want to carry youngsters like Tuggle and Bullough which doesn't leave room for all the vets.

As for EZ. I really contemplated with him on there, but decided to leave him off. Would have him on practice squad. Reason is because his hype is all in-house so I don't think he would be snatched off the PS by another team. It would be safe to stash him as a reserve there.

As for Martin, I'm tired of him as well. Never was a fan of his and hated the draft pick when we made it. I don't think the FO will be giving up on him (or Harris) just quite yet though.

Other than this year's draft picks I don't think the FO has much stroke on the 53 especially at the back end. Nobody is over ruling OB if he wants to dump Harris or Martin.

I agree. Heck, it wouldn't surprise me if two of the five were in the Oline. Imo, our Oline depth is the worst in all our position groups.

Plus, Brooks being healthy and X winning the other G spot are big IFs too.
