Looking for a specific skill set... There are guys available with skills that may translate to being a primary ball-carrier (if they make the transition well into the NFL)... There was a mid round RB today that was explosive, thick, and a very productive running but had 0 catches... If the Texans are looking for a RB to utilize in the passing game, they aren't going to take a shot in hopes of ending up with Alfred Morris. Instead, they will take a shot at someone and hope they get someone like Vereen. It's not about better or worse.

We are on the clock. Would it be LB or Slot receiver or some other position?

I didn't realize Marcus Roberson and Terrence Mitchell were still on the board .... both ~3rd round grades.

Any idea why they have fallen ?

Yeah , they got three guy's with 1st round talent in Su'a-Filo , Clowney & Nix , a day one starter in Fido at TE and a project QB with a full box of tools.


Hard to complain about the way this draft unfolded.

It really looks like we are going to go old-school. Prosch is a blocking FB that only touched the ball 5 times last year, IIRC.

Well ..... with what this team lacks under center , what do you expect ??


Defense & a solid running game .... a whole lot of 10-6 games , just hope they come out on top in the majority of them.

Took all FB's off my list. Didn't think we would draft one with all our needs. If we were going to get one this is a good one. Obviously OB came away from last years film with the belief we needed to get tougher. We have definitely done that!!!!!

This draft is clearly focused on reshaping the roster, because of the significant schematic and philosophical changes on both sides of the ball. I would think there is more cherry-picking certain roles this year than in the future. I also think drafting in round six is different than in round one and two. I'm sure late round picks are often utilized to target specific roles and is much less bound to the large board.

Kid with a good story and a great motor. I have no problem with selecting the best FB in the draft. Guy is strong as a bull and an able pass catcher. Like I said, we are going to be a running team this year and he perfectly fits that. Remember our redone problems? Well we've just added a bull at OG, the best blocker at TE who is also a real tall target for the QB and a punishing FB...

I get it. Just would rather draft other areas of need first. This guy could have been had after the draft or even at the Mr. Irrelevant pick IMO.
