I only saw him catch the ball a couple times, but he looks like he has decent hands. Doesn't look like he fights to catch the ball.

New HT.com VIDEO on Prosch. He will indeed be our new "Hammer." Amazingly, he never graded out any lower than 92% in blocking in any game he played in.

for "purists" which i favorably call myself and those who love a hit you in the mouth style of football, i dont think there's anything more beautiful in the game than a dominant fullback. for years tony richardson was my favorite player. leach is another wonder - a big ugly bruiser, but it takes more than willingness to be a great. the fullback has to have eyes everywhere and a 6th sense (or exceptional preparation) for what the defense will do - he's the lead for a reason.

prosch rightly gets a ton of praise for his pure abusiveness. he's going to hit defenders, and hit them, and hit them, and as we saw repeatedly with leach and foster - eventually players will get out of the way or simply accept being bulldozed. what makes him a fullback worth drafting however isnt the violence, it's his reads and understanding. watching his tapes, he can line up the key linebacker or press into a lineman or lead into a safety - taking his assignment and knowing what to do on the fly.

i love a good fullback, and prosch has the makings of a player that can be an impact.

Admittedly, I was unaware who he was, so I did some research on Prosch as soon as we drafted him. Tough for a dude to lose his momma.

Oh, the dude's a workoutaholic. Built like a brick ****house

I'll be rooting for this guy

Nice read and a video of Jay getting picked

“That’s No. 1 who I wanted to be drafted by for sure,” Jay said. “I would have obviously went anywhere but I really wanted to go to Houston and be a part of the Texans.”

I wonder why that is.

I wish someone would ask him why he wanted to be a Texan so badly.

From what I've gathered, we spent a lot of time with him. We brought him to Houston too. Maybe he liked everything he saw and heard?

Yeah, maybe they told him they are committed to more than a 25% of the time FB AND not one who even if really good won't be valued at more than league minimum.

I think as the Texans are figuring out the QB situation , running the ball will be their best friend . They also won't to get away from the finesse label and that's a start . I see him being like Moose Johnson .

Plus our defense will be out there to give Fitz as many chances with the football as possible. Gonna need that with all the picks he throws.
Not just for Fitz this season either, next season when we find our QBOTF these guys are going to have a full year under their belts taking the pr essure off our rookie QB.

Every chance that next season won't be pretty, but I see a clear development path towards something very good going forward.

And doing something I've been wanting for a long time, putting a rookie QB in a position to succeed, not simply hoping for an Andrew Luck to come in and make the whole team around him better instantly (especially given there was no Andrew Luck available in this draft).

That, or they think we would have won 10-12 games last year with a decent run game.
